Some FAQ’s to help you evaluate.
A contractor management system helps automate the process and workflows a company uses to manage outsourced work and contract workers according to their standards, as well as standards set by the laws of the country in which they operate.
Verature’s built-in, simple, and required workflows, along with clear digital dashboards, alerts, and escalation, eliminate the labour-intensive admin required for contractor management, and the potential for human-error in achieving consistency.
A management system might cover Onboarding through to Check-In and Permit Issue:
A system like Verature comes with useful intelligent management tools such as project calendars to keep track of who is doing what and when, self-service check-in to track contractor movements between sites, digital permits to ensure that contractors have the right paperwork and permits, permit mapping to quickly and easily locate contractors, and remote online inductions to ensure that contractors are properly inducted before they start work.
These tools provide a comprehensive system for managing contractors across multiple sites, making it easier for companies to keep track of who is doing what and where, as well as ensuring that contractors are aware of any changes to regulations or safety policies.
The end goal of a contractor management system is to ensure that contractors are safe and compliant while they are on-site in order to eliminate risk of accident and injury, and, ultimately, loss of reputation and costly fines for breach of health and safety legislation to a business.
The consequence of poor management of contractors, is often an accident or dangerous incident. Companies found responsible are liable because they failed to plan, properly instruct and/or assess the risks involved in the job and the competency of that contractor to perform the job safely and correctly. The result, is businesses may be fined and prosecuted for negligence. Often, the HSE reports that occurrences are avoidable if correct contractor management processes are properly followed and adhered to by both the contractor and the client.
A system can help enforce robust processes, and ensure, if accidents do happen, you have done all you can to properly plan, instruct and check for risks.
A system trumps paper-based systems every time, because manual paper-based systems lack efficiency, control & security, and are vulnerable to corruption, lost data and susceptible to human error. Consolidation of data is difficult and thus gaining a real-time overview of the complete picture, or collating data for reporting, is often near impossible.
Managing the process and all of your data in a central cloud-based management platform helps ensure you’ve the information needed to complete compliance checks, resource future jobs, perform on job safety audits and prove due diligence to an external auditor.
This will vary depending on scope; the Tier you choose and any Extras you add-on, as well as the resource you can commit to the implementation phase.
