Contractor Safety Program
Our contractors are an important piece of our business success and they play an important role in working toward our goal of zero incidents. We work in partnership with our contractors to maintain a safe work environment and encourage them to raise concerns – all toward the assurance that people, the environment and property remain safe.
Our One Williams Mission ensures that contractor safety, in conjunction with process and employee safety, are our top values. No incident on the job is acceptable and our goal is zero incidents. We work every day toward the goal of reducing and eliminating incidents with our third-party contractors.
We have developed an enhanced comprehensive Contractor Safety Management plan encompassing the requirements below:
Contractors are pre-screened using a nationally recognized contractor safety management system (ISNetworld®) grading contractors, using a unique Williams grading process prior to generating a service agreement.
Compliance with safety guidelines in contractual agreements
Contractors are held accountable to robust EHS contractual requirements and are expected to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, industry standards and company policies/procedures. Contractors are expected to report all incidents and share lessons learned by completing incident investigations.
Periodic evaluations of our contractors are performed to ensure they are meeting both regulatory and contractual requirements. Our team of Environmental, Health and Safety Specialists work with our contractors on a daily basis to ensure we maintain a safe and an environmentally responsible work environment.
Monitoring of Contractor Safety Performance
As part of our commitment to safety, we collect safety and environmental metrics from our contractors.
STOP Work Authority
We have empowered all contractors to STOP work if they feel a situation is unsafe. This includes stopping employees and other third-party contractor personnel at any location.
Drug & Alcohol
Williams does not allow the use of illegal drugs or alcohol. We require that all contractors are enrolled in a third-party drug and alcohol testing consortium.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding a contractor who is doing work for Williams, please contact 800-945-5426.
