When it comes to managing large, multi-site locations, whether for challenging projects on land, or the demanding nature of off shore projects, it is important to be as fully prepared as possible. One way to ensure that the entire project runs as smoothly as possible, especially if you are in charge of looking after multiple sites at once, is to create an implement a system of training and induction that ensures that every single contractor and employee understands what is expected of them on a project. With clear inductions and training manuals, contractors can also be instructed on all relevant health and safety literature, as well as more specific instructions relating to each project, task, and site within the wider project.
It doesn’t matter whether you are working on a single site on land, or multiple locations off shore, as a project manager you have to understand about all the moving parts at any given time. For employees, contractors, single instance visitors, and any suppliers visiting a site, it is important that they can demonstrate suitability through permits to work, as well as conforming to your own process of induction.

One way to ensure this is as smooth a process as possible is to provide an online induction system.
