Managing Risk on the Job Site: The Value of Working with a Staffing Partner Unite Contracting

Risk management is a critical aspect of any company, especially one in the construction industry. Shipyards, in particular, face unique challenges when it comes to employment-related risks.

By partnering with a staffing firm like Unite Contracting (UC), shipyards and commercial construction sites can effectively manage risks on the job site. UC assumes many of the legal and financial liabilities associated with staffing, providing construction and shipyard companies with a comprehensive risk management solution.

Here are a few benefits of working with a staffing partner to better manage risk on job sites.

Minimize Workers’ Compensation Claims

Workers’ compensation claims can have a significant impact on operations and finances. By partnering with a staffing firm, companies can mitigate these risks. Unite Contracting assumes the legal and financial liabilities associated with the workers they provide, reducing the burden on the shipyard and construction site.

In the event of a workers’ compensation claim, UC handles the necessary processes, such as paperwork and insurance filings, relieving a company of these administrative responsibilities. This allows companies to focus on core operations and ensures that workers’ compensation issues are managed efficiently and in compliance with relevant regulations.

HR & Financial Liability Management

Staffing a shipyard or commercial construction project involves various HR and financial tasks that can take up precious time. These include handling taxes, insurance, drug tests, background checks, and more.

A staffing firm like Unite Contracting takes on these responsibilities, assuming the associated liabilities. UC’s expertise in managing these aspects ensures that the partnering company remains compliant with regulations and minimizes the risk of penalties or legal complications. By offloading these burdens to a staffing partner, they can concentrate on project execution and achieve greater peace of mind.

Enhanced Safety & Compliance Measures

Maintaining a safe and compliant work environment is paramount. A staffing partner like UC helps navigate the complex landscape of safety regulations and compliance requirements. UC ensures that the workers they provide have the appropriate qualifications for the job they are placed in, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries on the job site.

Additionally, UC stays updated with changing regulations, ensuring that shipyards and construction sites remain compliant with industry standards and governmental guidelines. By prioritizing safety and compliance, companies can protect their workers, reputation, and overall project success.
