Looking Forward: Verature Contractor Management Compliance

Compliance can and does impact every element of an organisation; it can become embedded in your culture and impact employee engagement, and it can set you apart from your competitors. Although fines are a concern for many businesses, non-compliance can cause far more issues than simply being fined. Product delays, drops in productivity and workforce disruption are all results of non-compliance.

Implementing an innovative and efficient contract management system can help your organisation mitigate incidents caused by non-compliant contractors to:

  • Prevent damage to your reputation
  • Avoid large HSE fines and prosecutions
  • Have a full compliant audit trail of your contractors

With each new year, companies across all industries regularly set new goals for improvement and growth; We understand many companies can be overwhelmed by the administrative burden of management annually renewing documents as part of their contractor management process, BUT managing health and safety doesn’t have to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. In fact, it’s easier than you think.

We’ve developed with a large manufacturing plant in EMEA, a system to help deal with; H&S Questionnaires, Insurances, Expiries & Renewals, Risk Assessments, Method Statements, Tracking of Permits to Work… to help you demonstrate your due diligence.

Our Verature Contractor Management Systems provides a straight forward approach for your plans on efficient contractor compliance by ensuring you can capture information, reduce risk, maintain compliance & evidence due diligence easy.

Prequalification: This is the first stage of the contractor lifecycle. This is often the most time-intensive stage of the contractor lifecycle because it requires investments in time and resources to collect, validate, and score requisite information, as well as keeping the contractor information current and accessible within a single repository.

The Verature system enables you to predetermine thresholds for lagging indicators, compliance protocols, and metrics that contractors must pass in order to work for you in one central database and create expiry alerts and reminders for the contractor and your team to update prequalification documents.

Unapproved contractors—those who don’t meet your company-specific health and safety hiring prerequisites—become critical to your business when they are repeatedly hired to meet unusual or unexpected workload demands despite their questionable safety records.

Verature offers visibility into your workforce gaps and provides valuable tools for helping contractors improve their safety compliance. Authorising and managing risks associated with hiring decisions, Verature accelerates contractor time to work.

Contractor Management Systems like Verature consecutively helps your business move unapproved contractors from being an exception hire to being cleared and ready for immediate assignment with:

  • Important Contractor Data Capture
  • Formal Corrective Action Process
  • Contractor Safety Audits
  • Alerts, Escalations and Expirations On Important Documentation
