Challenge and Solution

Taking Back Control of Your Facilities

Managing the flow of visitors, contractors and vendors coming in and out of your campus, plus ensuring all of the proper permits are in place for the work they do, is too much for one person or even a small team of people to do via spreadsheets or outdated systems. This is especially true in a post-pandemic world, where tracking people onsite is a critical and lifesaving task. An employer’s responsibility for the training and welfare of all onsite workers (temporary or not) continues to increase, and regulatory oversite of the same is at an all time high.

As a risk manager or EHS professional, now is the time to ask if your current Control of Work program is actually creating risk by using disparate systems and inefficient processes. Are essential tasks and details falling through the cracks, resulting in incomplete or insufficiently closed permits? Are you struggling to enforce processes due to a lack of controls and standardization across multiple sites?

The Simple Solution

Taking back control of contractors and permit is easy with VelocityEHS Control of Work. You’ll gain peace of mind with 100% certainty that every contractor onsite is safe and compliant. Button up your processes and oversite with automated and electronic workflows and documentation, and you and your team will work smarter, not harder. Seamlessly manage the complete contractor journey and electronic permit-to-work process in a centralized system, and you’ll dramatically decrease administration time, reduce risk of accidents, and easily pass internal audits.

With VelocityEHS, you will be able to keep compliance documents up-to-date, ensure full contractor & visitor recognition and check-in processes are in place, and empower your contractors to tackle induction and orientation anytime, anywhere.
