THERE’S AN IS COMPONENT to a long list of services provided by Safety Solutions & Supply.
IS is short for “information services.” IS is a broad term that includes IT, or “information technology.” Most people think of IT as having something to do with computers, networks, and software and the installation, servicing, and support for things like that.
The folks over at Florida Tech in Melbourne define information systems as “an umbrella term for the systems, people, and processes designed to create, store, manipulate, distribute and disseminate information. … An information system, however, can be as simple as a pencil and a piece of paper.”
Where IS and IT come together for SS&S is the support we can provide for three safety-related information solutions most often used by companies involved in industries like construction, manufacturing, and mining. We’re taking about the data systems ISNetworld, Avetta, and BROWZ.
Once installed and fully implemented, ISNetworld, Avetta, and BROWZ are efficient ways for companies to verify that contractors meet all the requirements established to maintain a safe work environment.
ISNetworld is a product of ISN, a global resource that helps connect qualified contractors and suppliers with hiring clients around the globe. An online contractor management database, ISNetworld is designed to meet internal and governmental record-keeping and compliance requirements.
Avetta is an asset for global supply chain risk management. Its purpose is to connect the world’s leading organizations with qualified suppliers, contractors, and vendors. Avetta tests supply chain visibility and helps to answer these questions: 1) Are your suppliers safe, insured, financially stable, and sustainable? 2) Do they meet your compliance criteria?
BROWZ helps to deliver assurance that your business is working with safe, qualified, and socially responsible contractors and suppliers. BROWZ also helps to ensure that supply chains are safe, qualified, and socially responsible. It’s a tool for identifying risks within your supply chain, managing employee-level data, conducting safety auditing, and sourcing new suppliers.
The initial setup and verification involved in subscribing to each of these three products is a time-consuming endeavor that just might require some help beyond a company’s in-house resources. Several Safety Solutions & Supply team members are fluent in the process of contractor verification and experts in getting ISNetworld, Avetta, and BROWZ operational.
The SS&S professionals will work daily with customers to upload the safety programs and collect OSHA 300 logs, insurance documentation, and other information required in an ISNetworld, Avetta, or BROWZ account. The goal of any company is an approved or “A” safety-compliance rating; the goal of SS&S to get you to that level, through verification with your potential clients, so you can grow your business.
