Benchmarking contractor management
While prioritising the health, safety and wellbeing of workers is a legal obligation for any organisation, it also makes good business sense, especially as the financial and indirect costs of getting it wrong continues to rise. The injury of a sub-contractor who broke his jaw while working at Tesla’s California facility is just one high profile example which contributed to the value of the company dropping by two percent (equivalent to more than $1 billion dollars at the time).
Nobody goes to work to get injured. For most businesses, zero accidents and lost working days is the ultimate goal to achieve.
With many supply chains at risk from disruption due to the ongoing pandemic, one of the most challenging aspects is how to manage and source safe contractors and suppliers to keep your business moving.
However temporary workers may be at increased risk of work-related illness and injury compared to permanent employees, because they are unfamiliar with the business and any hazards. Better understanding of contractor management and sourcing safe, reliable contractors could have a significant impact on achieving ‘target zero’ and helping to create better workplaces.
