Ensuring Contractor Safety with Safe People, Safe Processes, and Safe Systems Framework

Whitepaper | June, 2024

Contract workers now constitute a significant portion of the US workforce, highlighting the growing dependence on third-party labor for specialized tasks. While hiring contractors offers operational flexibility and access to specialized skills, it also introduces significant safety risks.

Contractor-related safety incidents are three to four times more frequent than those involving full-time employees. The financial, operational, and reputational impacts of contractor safety incidents are profound. Companies facing safety violations not only incur substantial costs from injuries and fatalities but also suffer from operational disruptions, reputational damage, and diminished trust.

This necessitates a comprehensive approach to contractor safety that goes beyond mere compliance and integrates safety within the broader framework of Safe People, Safe Processes, and Safe Systems. By ensuring that contractors are well-trained and compliant, streamlining onboarding and safety procedures, and integrating safety data across enterprise systems, organizations can mitigate risks and protect their workforce.

By adopting a proactive and integrated approach to contractor safety, organizations can foster a culture of zero harm, safeguarding the well-being of all workers and maintaining operational integrity.

  • Why contractor safety is critical
  • Need for contractor safety management
  • Current challenges in contractor safety management
