ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada Locations Select Cognibox Solution to Improve Contractor Management
Cognibox is proud to announce that all ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada locations will be fully integrated into our contractor management solution by the end of 2016. The group’s Hamilton East wire mill in Ontario is the latest site to use Cognibox to manage contractors efficiently, securely and cost-effectively.
ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada’s seven other locations have been using Cognibox for several years to qualify contractors and contractor employees. The addition of the Hamilton East location underscores the group’s commitment to standardize practices across all facilities. By instituting compliance management best practices for suppliers, ArcelorMittal continues to affirm its position as a leader in occupational health and safety.
The inclusion of the wire mill also consolidates Cognibox’s presence in Ontario, especially in the strategic Hamilton area where large companies employ thousands of contractors. Furthermore, integration of this additional location into Cognibox will undoubtedly inspire other regional organizations to tap into this consolidated community of contractors to simplify their compliance processes and avoid the duplication or multiplication of information required by hiring organizations.
Cognibox enables clients to complete all contractor qualification processes online using a single platform. Module functions include archiving, validation, alerts, information and document sharing among various departments. It also allows clients to centralize and archive all contractor employee training files, regardless of where training takes place or which organization provides the training.
