ISNetworld® states that the benefits of using them is saving time, building relationships, being part of a team and improving the safety culture. I don’t know about saving time unless you are an owner client, because the process to input all of the information can be a very timely process, especially if you are not familiar with their system. You can however, reach out to other companies to build relationships and add more owner clients to your existing account. This might be a good way to add clients to your growing business. Improving the safety culture is also a big part of it. This is because you have to report accidents, OSHA recordables, spills, and other similar items. If you get too many of these you can loose your contract because your grade will lower. Therefore, you will want to communicate to your employees that safety is an important part of your work environment. Too many times employees get complacent and make silly mistakes. If you stay on top of your employees and get them proper training they should be safer.
So how does all of this really help you? The safer you are the less money you spend in insurance and workers compensation. Training may cost you money in the beginning but it can get you contracts, keep your guys safer and save you money in the long run. Lets be honest, the more money you can save the better and the more jobs you can get the more money in your pocket. This is why hiring the proper ISNetworld® consultant is important. Not only should they be able to manage your account, but they should be able to provide you with the training that you need. If they can’t do this think about getting a new ISNetworld® consultant. Some ISNetworld® consultants are safety professionals. This means they have certain qualifications and certifications that can help you manage your account, draft safety programs, train your guys and help you if you get audited. Finding this person will save you money because you won’t have to hire different individuals to help you get through any problems you may encounter.
You may not see the benefits of ISNetworld® in the beginning, but they are there, you just have to look.
