Thanks to Cognibox, Davie can manage contractor compliance rigorously and efficiently
Following multiple contract announcements, including the maintenance project for Canadian frigates, Davie has mandated Cognibox to ensure the quality of external workers entering their site in Lévis, Québec.
By opting for Cognibox, Davie is obtaining not only a software, but also a partner who will support it in all aspects of contractor compliance management. By constantly refining its solutions and adhering to best practices in risk management, Cognibox provides Davie with a professional and efficient process for managing its contractors, employees, and their training. Automating the compliance level verification of contractors’ employees based on the nature of their tasks and the specifics of the site zones will also help ensure everyone’s work environment remains safe.
Davie will also benefits from Cognibox’s e-learning expertise to take its current induction training to the next level and considerably reduce training costs.
“Since the majority of contractors are already Cognibox members, we are confident that the qualification process will be completed within the timeframe requested by our new client. Furthermore, Davie confided during a meeting that its decision to implement Cognibox was partially due to the request from several contractors who consider Cognibox to be a tool that allows them to properly understand Davie’s requirements and to follow the status of their qualification file,” mentioned Annie Riopel‑Meunier, Implementation Project Manager for Cognibox.
