It seems that many companies are deciding to outsource because they want to focus on core competencies and bring in people who can help with other aspects. You can find outsourced human resources, call center needs, information technology and more. However, the new wave is to consider contracting your safety project management to free up resources and staff.
Not Enough Staff/Money
The first reason to consider outsourcing your safety project management is that you don’t have enough people to have an in-house program. It may also be that your company isn’t big enough to justify salaries for full-time professionals that can help with compliance. In these cases, it is best to hire someone as needed. Services can include pre-qualification assistance, program reviews and updates, accident investigations, training, site inspections and others.
Already Have Someone, But They’re Overwhelmed
Larger companies may already have someone qualified to handle the tasks but may become overwhelmed with all the things they must do. If the extra work is temporary, you may consider outsourcing as needed until the workload slows back to a manageable pace.
Many times, it is best to have flexibility in business, and outsourcing can give you that. You can bring someone in on the projects with which you need help for the duration of the time you’ll need them. You aren’t forced to pay benefits and salaries to people you will only require for a short period.
Staffing agencies already have established systems that work, and they can provide you with a manager that will already be trained and know what to do, which can save you time, money, and keep you compliant.
