A large industrial contractor was awarded a project as general contractor for a project where the owner of the site required very stringent safety criteria with respect to contractors and subcontractors. The scope of the project required numerous sub-trades and resulted in the hiring of eight to ten subcontractors. Virtually all the subcontractors intended to for this project were rejected by the owner for deficiencies in their safety programs.
SWSI personnel were tasked to assist these subcontractors in all ways necessary to accomplish the safety requirements set out by the project owner. This was in some cases a matter of fine-tuning existing information yet for others it required a substantial overhaul in a process involving extensive consultation between the subcontractors, the project owner and SWSI.
