Contractor Safety Cultures Improve

Industry Leaders Unite to Help Improve the Regional Contractor Safety Culture!

Fourteen plants in the Upstate of South Carolina work together to improve the contractor safety culture in the region!  (For more information, click on the Press Release.)  The first step the regional alliance took to improve the process is recognize the differences that create the challenge.

Top 3 Client Related Challenges:

  1. Clients have different safety training requirements & expectations.
  2. Clients do not always have confidence in the level of contractor safety knowledge.
  3. Clients do not have consistent ways to verify the quality of contractor safety training.

The “client challenges” also impact each contractor’s ability to pursue work.  A standard approach gives a client confidence and it gives a contractor a clear path to satisfy their customer.  The Peak Safety Orientation is easy, convenient, and cost effect.  In 2017, plants across the Upstate of South Carolina are jumping on board to gain the benefit of this standard approach.

Fourteen plants in the Upstate recognize the standard Peak Safety Orientation is a class we trust!

The class is offered weekly and it is open to the public.  Register here!
