Want to Remain Competitive? Select Safety-Conscious Subcontractors with the Help of this Guide

July 25, 2019

Your company’s bottom line, and its ability to obtain future work, is at risk each time you hire a subcontractor. Companies whose subcontractors consistently perform the industry’s necessary safely functions well have a much easier time securing future work. So how do you go about finding safety-conscious subcontractors? MCAA’s Guide to Subcontractor Safety Management simplifies the process by providing a system for subcontractor evaluation.

You will learn:

  • How to objectively select subcontractors that are committed to jobsite safety
  • How to assist your subs through the process of establishing and implementing the programs, policies, procedures, and safe work practices necessary to consistently perform their work safely
  • How to verify and document that the necessary safety and health measures have been established, and are consistently implemented
