DiscoverHow Unenforced Visitor Policies and Compliance Leads to Problems
Contractor compliance, documentation and on-site management are not top of mind for many manufacturing professionals. Oftentimes, management teams don’t consider contractors, vendors or drivers as “visitors.” While everyone knows how important safety and policies are, the specific tasks surrounding visitor management can be monotonous. Since visitor policies are often covered by corporate policy or certification processes, facilities typically do things the way they always have, rather than reevaluate their operation. If nothing has ever happened that draws scrutiny to the process, they are rarely thought about. But, when the safety of others is at risk, no amount of money can replace the regret of not having done things differently. For example, each workplace injury costs an average of $44k, plus an additional +$15k in fines, and doesn’t include legal proceedings.
A Harvard Business Review study found that the more complex and detailed rules are the most likely to be broken. However, since regulatory and safety compliance can never be optional or even enforced inadequately, your staff and visitors must consistently execute properly…regardless of how challenging/complicated/annoying the procedures may be.
