Contractor safety management is a critical component to ensuring a safe workplace. The purpose of the contractor safety program is to ensure the safety of employees, customers, and guests as contractors perform work for Atlas.
Atlas has a responsibility to ensure we acquire contract companies and vendors who have demonstrated good safety performance and adhere to regulatory requirements. Atlas is also responsible to make certain contractors are informed of hazards they may encounter while working on Atlas or Atlas customer sites and held to Atlas’ safety program requirements.
The highlights of the Contractor Safety Program include:
- Vetting contract companies’ safety performance and insurance levels then approving or rejecting them as an approved vendor based on this data.
- Requiring Atlas personnel who hire contractors to actively oversee and manage the contractor by ensuring they adhere to regulatory, Atlas, and Atlas customer safety requirements.
- Requiring contractors to report all safety incidents to their Atlas contact person immediately and establish measures to prevent recurrence of other incidents.
For a contract company to be eligible as an approved contractor, working onsite at an Atlas or Atlas customer facility, they must meet certain requirements. The requirements below will be reviewed as a whole and weighted so a company may not meet one requirement but still be eligible to be placed on the approved list.
- The contractor company’s incident rates (total case rate and days away, restricted and transferred rate) must be at or below their Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) incident rate averages.
