Solutions – How Consultivo can help


Contractor Safety Management – Pre-qualification support

Pre-qualification support allows you to have a competent and compliant pool of contractors to use as needed.

It ensures an effective CSMS.

You become sure about the appropriate categorisation, qualifications, licenses, safety processes, appropriate level of insurance cover, review of contractual agreement – procurement contracts, pre-job tasks and risk assessment for the services you need.


Contractor Safety Management – Framework Development

What you get is a customised contractor management framework with processes, procedures, methodologies and checklists.

It covers pre-qualification to post evaluation stages and helps you to manage contractor safety related risks efficiently.


CSM Audit or CSMS Audit

CSM Audit or CSMS Audit is an evaluation process ensuring safety compliance in contractor activities, safeguarding workers and stakeholders from potential risks and hazards. It makes sure contractors follow safety rules to protect workers and others, prevent accidents and creates a safe working environment for everyone involved.

Safety performance appraisal audit or CSM Audit (during and/or after the project) or a contractor safety audit helps you to evaluate the effectiveness of your CSM.

It provides a platform to  benchmark the safety performances among contractors.


Contractor Safety Management System – Capacity building and training

Capacity building, training and periodic interventions for contractors & their people are very critical to ensure the effectiveness of any CSMS.

Consultivo Academy provides multiple in-house courses for different target groups like workforce, supervisors, engineers and managers.

Courses are customised for your organisation and can be delivered in vernacular languages.

As a Contractor Safety Management Consultant we have conducted an independent study, ‘Leadership Challenges in managing contractor induced risk at workplaces’, with Confederation of Indian Industries (CII). This study on CSMS examines the impact of leadership on contractor management programs.
