Top 7 Contractor Challenges:

  1. Contractors do not always have cost effective options for delivering training.

  3. Contractors deliver safety training in various durations and methods.
  4. Contractors do not always have access to instructors that are safety professionals.
  5. Contractors encounter scheduling conflicts with new employees and client demands.
  6. Contractors do not always have a convenient time and place to conduct safety training.
  7. Contractors do not always verify participant comprehension for safety material.
