When householders need someone to fix a pipe or cut the garden back, they get some assurance from organisations like Check-a-Trade that the people they choose will be reliable and do a proper job.
Large companies have a similar system for finding suppliers and contractors that they can trust; it’s called Avetta.
Avetta (formerly known as PICS Auditing) is a worldwide, web-based risk-management platform that connects some of the biggest organisations with trustworthy contractors, and Drain and Sewer Services is proud to say that we are an Avetta-certified contractor.
What Avetta means to organisations hiring sub-contractors
Avetta gives businesses and other organisations access to pre-qualification checks on their small and medium sized service providers, making sure they conform to health, safety, environmental, and other standards of professionalism, accountability and responsibility.
This helps large organisations to reduce risk, improve safety performance, streamline processes, reduce the cost of qualifying, managing, and monitoring contractors and suppliers.
The cloud-based Avetta platform simplifies and speeds up the processes needed for proper contractor management:
- Managing risk by using qualified contractors
- Meeting corporate policies and standards and as well as industry codes of practice and national legal regulations
- Sourcing contractors more cheaply
- Streamlining contractor management, cutting admin overheads.
