The ‘contractor’ pass on a lanyard conveys a lot of authority. It means the wearer has someone’s permission to be on your premises. It may even mean it’s easier to do a roll call in the unlikely event of having to evacuate because of an emergency (real or a drill).

But the question is: does that hard-hatted, badge-wearing contractor have the necessary skills? Do they have the requisite training, licences and insurance? Perhaps, but how would you know? Do those signs on the wall that say ‘Safety is our number one priority’ mean anything if you have hired contractors but don’t know who is doing what?

Fortunately, it isn’t necessary for procurement staff to personally check the credentials of everyone on site. There are better options. And with a typical industrial accident costing tens of thousands of dollars, those options could pay for themselves many times over.
