ISN Launches RAVS Plus®
An assessment which helps bridge the gap between the review of written programs and a potential audit or on-site inspection by a Hiring Client
DALLAS, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ISN is pleased to introduce its latest service offering, RAVS Plus®. Based on feedback from its clients across multiple industries, ISN developed a process to help gather evidence that written health, safety and environmental (HSE) programs have been implemented by contractor customers throughout their organizations. The RAVS Plus service focuses on leading measures of HSE performance and is designed to help bridge the gap between the ISN RAVS desktop review and a potential on-site audit or inspection by a Hiring Client.
As contractor customers gather evidence of training and supporting documents for review and prepare for an in-person interview with ISN's team of experienced health and safety professionals, the ISN team is available to provide assistance and resources throughout each step.
"We are pleased to offer a value-add service like RAVS Plus to our customers," said Brent Ross, CSP and RAVS Senior Manager at ISN. "The collaborative effort among Hiring Clients, contractor customers and the ISN team encourages continual improvement of health, safety and environmental best practices, which is one of the main goals of RAVS Plus."
More than 30 Hiring Clients and 500 contractor customers piloted RAVS Plus in 2015. The primary benefits for contractor customers are the resources available to them, as well as the ability to differentiate their companies by demonstrating they have implemented their HSE programs. RAVS Plus also brings standardization across multiple industries and reduces duplicative assessments for contractor customers as results are available to all of their ISNetworld Hiring Clients.
Kaitlyn Kozyn, Process Analyst at Walbridge said, "The in-house interview with ISN was beneficial because it provided the opportunity for our employees to have more exposure and clarity regarding our safety processes, while identifying areas of improvement for our safety team. The assessment truly allowed us to showcase our motto 'If it's not safe, I won't do it and I won't let others do it.'"
Dag Yemenu,Senior Vice President of Customer and Technical Services at ISN, said, "We are committed to continuing to provide innovative and industry-leading solutions for our customers. Feedback from our Hiring Clients and contractor customers on the RAVS Plus process has been very positive and we look forward to expanding this service in the future."
