It is part of a comprehensive construction workplace safety program.
The qualification process involves auditing a contractor firm’s safety program and safety
metrics against a performance benchmark. Approved contractors are allowed to bid work,
competing only with other contractors that have passed the safety prequalification requirements.
As part of continual improvement, contractors may be evaluated annually to address deficiencies.
The requirement of minimum safety performance and continual improvement lead to positive
feedback loop of improved safety, reduced harm to employees, and lower costs.
We provide on-site safety representatives that dovetail into our safety prequalification
services. We have a tested and proven method for providing contractor safety management
for clients. For projects large and small, nationwide in the United States, we can help.
Our qualification services are bundled with our software as a services (SaaS) platform.
This contractor qualification software helps manage contractor information.
Let’s face it, safety requires documentation, the volume of documentation can be
overwhelming. Putting all your contractor safety documentation and information in
one spot, accessible anywhere, and anytime – is one less item to stress over,
allowing you to focus on the real challenges.
Choosing a safety qualification vendor is tough choice, because of the investment
of time and money. Certainly there are other providers out there, but few can manage
the contractor safety of a client from initial qualification to project closeouts.
Our software, in combination with your staff or ours, does more than safety qualification.
Ideally, a new contractor is safety qualified then on boarded to the owner’s safety
culture and expectations. This can be challenging using third party vendors. Our
process will look and feel like your own custom qualification service. Our safety software as a service
(SaaS) model lets you build from our experience, but meet your specific needs.
Beyond qualification we help manage:
Client and Site Specific Orientation
Client Safety Program Manual
Contractor Incidents, investigations, and Reporting
Documents/Files: Documents are stored on Microsoft Azure geo-redundant storage and are limited to a 100 MB max per file.
There is no technical limit to the number of documents. Documents are stored in individual accounts that can be
transferred to the client should the need arise. Documents are backed up within 15 minutes to a separate, individual
Amazon S3 account for disaster recovery and redundancy.
Database: The database is backed up daily with seven (7) days of retention/history available. Additional archived snapshots are maintained at a less
scheduled frequency, with availability back one (1) year.
Email: There is a dedicated email domain for most clients. You can create and manage email address through your portal.
Email distribution groups, customized templates for system notifications, and automated system actions/notification are available. Email is
encrypted and includes spam protection (spf/dkim records).
Chances are that you have an existing list of contractors and data. No one wants to type all that in again.
We will create a plan to import your data into our platform, based upon the available data and documents. This import
will be approved and available for review prior to going live - on our test server.
Test Server: Have an idea or want to see how a change affects your site/data? You can test changes and see what happens on the test
server without causing havoc on your live data. Changes and updates can be tested before rolling them out in production.

Enough words - how about taking a look for yourself.

Most contractors have a wide array of equipment. Some of it is used on nearly every job, while some pieces may be hauled out only occasionally for specific needs. Then there are those projects that call for something that used so rarely it doesn’t make sense to own one, or that are large enough that the need is bigger than ...
One of the most familiar — and frustrating — aspects of life on most construction sites is the tendency of workers to participate in the strange contest called the blame game. Anyone who has been a supervisor on a site for any length of time is certain to have encountered this odd contest. Something goes wrong, and everyone in earshot ...
Nobody goes to work expecting a fire to break out, except for professional firefighters. Yet many jobsites have products and processes that present an elevated risk for fires. Even common objects such as vehicles and gasoline-powered compressors can present fire hazards. Fires are always a surprise, and if workers (and jobsites) aren’t prepared, the results can be devastating in terms ...
It would stand to reason that a device that produces an intense flame or concentrated electric arc would be inherently dangerous. But welding and cutting equipment has become so familiar on many of today’s worksites that it’s easy to lose sight of the potential hazards. Safety professionals know that few things are more dangerous than complacency. When workers stop thinking ...

While you may not think of food poisoning as a workplace hazard, an outbreak caused by contaminated foods or liquids can lead to a significant amount of lost time. Given that the effects of food poisoning often last for two or three days, a worker could easily miss a couple days as he or she recovers. For people with other ...
You may not be able to see radiation, but you’re probably aware that it can be deadly in high doses. Many people who came of age during the Cold War have a strong fear of nuclear weapons. And when a tsunami crippled Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant nearly a decade ago, leading to one of the largest accidental releases of ...
Storage tanks of a variety of shapes and sizes can be found in all sorts of industries. While we typically associate storage tanks with refineries and other petrochemical-related facilities, you’ll see them at nearly every type of production facility. They may hold diesel fuel for a company’s vehicles, purified water for food processing, plastic pellets for injection molding, or chemicals ...
It doesn’t matter whether you work in an urban, suburban, or rural setting. Look around, and you’ll see that electric power transmission lines are a familiar part of the landscape. From the wood poles that deliver service local customers, to the giant towers carrying high-voltage, high-tension conductors around the nation’s power grid, power lines also present a significant hazard to ...
