Safety and Compliance

Safety and Compliance

For more than three decades, PeopleReady Skilled Trades has made safety a priority.

Safety is Our First Priority

Safety is Our First Priority

This commitment is easily seen in every safety-specific program, process and procedure we create. Below are just some of the steps we have taken and continue to take every day to ensure a safe workforce:

  • Implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)
  • Complete safety-specific assessments for each tradesperson we hire
  • Require onsite, safety-specific training prior to starting on a new job site
  • Offer OSHA 10- and 30-hour training to our tradespeople at no cost
  • Provide standard personal protective equipment to every tradesperson

Our Commitment

It’s the combination of the five things above, as well as our right match dispatch philosophy and BeSafe program, that allow us to confidently say that safety is, and always has been, our priority.

Reduce Your Risk

For nearly three decades, we’ve made it a priority for our tradespeople to meet U.S. employment eligibility requirements. We perform skills tests, integrity tests and various other onboarding and verification processes to ensure that each of our tradesmen and tradeswomen meets our quality standards — and yours.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

To ensure the safest working conditions, proper use of PPE is required by us, our customers and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). At PeopleReady Skilled Trades, we provide standard PPE to all tradespeople as needed, including:

  • Hard hat
  • Gloves
  • Eye protection
  • Safety vest

Security Clearance

As security regulations and protocols change, government agencies and contractors have increased requirements for security-cleared professionals. PeopleReady Skilled Trades provides cleared professionals that meet today’s requirements for project-based opportunities. Plus, they are all fully vetted by our in-house security experts, so you can rest assured that when they show up onsite, they’re cleared and ready to work.

Prevailing Wage and Certified Payroll

We can supply tradespeople for prevailing wage projects and provide certified payroll reporting. Bill rates for prevailing wage work will be quoted at the time the order is placed. If the job requires the payment of prevailing wages, you are responsible for informing us when the job order is placed and for providing the wage determination documentation. In some cases, other minimums may apply. If this is the case, your skilled trades staffing expert will let you know.

Have Controlled Insurance Projects (OCIP/CCIP)? Our dedicated wrap-up team handles all enrollment and reporting for specialized insurance-related needs. Enrollment typically takes three to five days to complete and must be done for each contractor’s notice of award.
