Avoid the countless potential liabilities faced when hiring & managing sub-contractors.
Prime Contractors have a duty to setup an effective safety management system. They need to ensure that everyone involved in work at their site meets all safety and health obligations. They also need to coordinate the safety and health programs of sub-contractors.
Not managing sub-contractors comes with the risk that:
- • your projects will experience costly delays and rework
- • people, property, and the environment are exposed hazards
- • these losses and liabilities are not insurable.
Evaluating & managing sub-contractors can be a large administrative burden to ensure safety compliance. When working with paper documents from sub-trades there are a lot of challenges; documents tend to be returned incomplete or not returned at all.
myContractorManager ensures before work begins you collect the documents you need like:
- • Insurance Certificate & WCB Letter
- • Safety Evaluations
- • Site Specific Safe Job Plan and Procedures
- • etc.
Effective sub-contractor management helps to ensure that the job is done safely. myContractorManager lets you put in place a system to evaluate, monitor and enforce all sub-contractors. Great safety management is great business management!!!
Sub-Contractor Evaluation: It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Create a safety evaluation form specific to your subcontractor’s scope of work using the ready made templates or create your own from scratch. The handy wizard knows what questions to ask when you tell it what kind of a sub trade you’re hiring!
Send to your sub-trade. They’ll be prompted by email to create a FREE account where they can log in and complete your safety evaluation form, attach the requested supporting documentation and set expiry dates for critical documents like certificates of insurance.
Review the Safety Evaluation Form once your sub sends it back. Accept, reject or send back to the sub for minor revisions. Once you are satisfied, accept the Safety Evaluation form and create a permanent record.
