Veriforce offers Contractor Safety Management Services offering Operators an easy and intelligent connection to compile, evaluate, and view contractor information.
Veriforce is helping Operators easily choose the right Contractors; ones that meet their established safety requirements. It can be a challenge for Operators to easily identify the right Contractor for construction and maintenance projects, so we’ve built a safety program that allows Operators to manage what is important to their business. Operators can choose between our newly improved safety services or our enhanced safety management services.

NFPA 56 applies to fire and explosion prevention during cleaning and purging activities for new and existing flammable gas piping found in electric-generating plant, industrial, institutional and commercial applications. Coverage of piping systems shall extend from the point of delivery to the gas-consuming equipment isolation valve.
This standard provides minimum safety requirements for the cleaning and purging of flammable gas piping systems, including cleaning new or existing piping systems, purging piping systems into service, and purging piping systems out of service.
Veriforce provides the tools needed to efficiently implement NFPA 56 training, qualification, and documentation requirements. We provide a solid solution for Owners/Operators and Contractors to work together with easy access for sharing documents, records, and resources.
Are there any special training or qualifications associated with Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS)?
SEMS programs must:
- Address not only 30 CFR 250 Subpart “O” requirements but all job duties for all personnel except domestic services as defined in Subpart S. Ensure that suitably trained and qualified personnel (including Contractors) are employed to carry out all aspects of the safety and environmental management program.
- Establish and implement a training program enabling all personnel (including Contractors) to perform their job duties safely and in a manner which provides for protection of the environment.
All operations in the Gulf of Mexico must have a SEMS program in place by 15 November 2011, with an audit to follow within two years of implementation. Veriforce provides the tools needed to efficiently implement SEMS training, qualification, and documentation requirements. We provide a solid solution for Operators and Contractors to work together with easy access for sharing documents, records, and resources.
