At CanQualify, the new year ushers in a flow of fresh safety data from our valued contractors. This year we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory with the recording of COVID-19 cases in the workplace. We see the need to help our contractors and clients alike get this right.
As their primary role, safety professionals typically manage a safe work culture. Instead, shuffling papers often becomes increasingly important along with accepting the administrator role and managing company information on third-party safety database sites.
When done correctly, contractor prequalification will reduce company risk, employee stress, and confusion regarding safety expectations. Working with suppliers or third-party contractors to improve business operations and capabilities can certainly have its advantages. It can also have drawbacks often associated with increased exposure to risks.
There are a lot of positive takeaways from companies that provide supplier manage solutions. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of frustrations where there shouldn’t be any at all: complicated navigation, overpriced fees, difficult to understand requirements and lack of customer support all play a roll.
Angie’s List and Home Advisor have taken a lot of stress away from American homeowners. Their unique software pre-qualifies contractors for residential home repairs. Instead of searching the web for contractors to fix your leaky faucet or build you a deck, a quick search on one of these platforms will find you qualified companies in seconds.
