Benchmarking Contractor Safety Management with Maturity Models

Contractors are largely considered individual contributors. With little liability bonds with the employer, they’re seldom indoctrinated within a company’s overall safety culture. Apart from this, contractors are often required to perform non-routine tasks at locations that aren’t under the purview of an official health and safety manager. In such circumstances, an unqualified, unskilled contractor performing a high intensity task can lead to a workplace fatality.


The good news is – there are federal and international compliance mandates requiring companies to ensure that their contractor safety requirements are fulfilled. The increasing stringency around process and personnel safety regulations and standards, both internal and external, has made contractor safety management programs a vital component in managing the outsourced workforce. Much like contractor performance, organizations also need to monitor their contractor safety through a strong established maturity model.
