Fertilizer Industry Leaders Gather at ISN Roundtable
The first ISN Fertilizer Client Roundtable was held at ISN Headquarters in Dallas, Texas, on March 25, 2014. Industry-leading clients participated in open discussions in which they shared best practices with the end goal of increasing the safety of contractors.
Primary discussions focused on streamlining and elevating the contractor evaluation process across sites and borders. Clients shared company-specific procedures they have developed to advance these objectives. Companies with cross-border operations described initiatives to align pre-qualification requirements and grading for their US and Canada sites. Steps being considered to meet that goal include sharing best practices between business units, housing post-job evaluations of contractor performance in ISNetworld and having a consistent approach to contractor management across all sites. Open lines of communication amongst all involved parties continues to be imperative to the success of these improvements.
