How making use of SafetyWallet can draw in more business

SafetyWallet provides an all-inclusive package when employers become members, and apart from working towards being fully compliant and obtaining great rewards in doing so, SafetyWallet provides employers with the assistance in drawing in more business.

SafetyWallet, along with its partnerships with OHS Online and  MAKROSAFE, supports and rewards employers in the following four components of Health and Safety Industry and Commerce, namely:

- Health and Safety Training

-

Health and Safety Programme

-

Health and Safety Compliance Grading Audit, and

-

Member Advertising

While providing employers with a variety of training services and initiatives along with an elaborate, comprehensive Safety Programme and in addition offering to conduct a Health and Safety Compliance Grading Audit, SafetyWallet caters extensively for advertising.

It is a tedious task when considering the difficulty involved for small and medium-sized contractors and suppliers in adhering to Health and Safety requirements despite the main business adhering to such and implementing new ways to ensure Health and Safety.

The engagement between SafetyWallet members and contractors and suppliers involves certain health and safety responsibilities for both the contractor and/or supplier and any other participant affected by their activities.

While contractors and suppliers are subjected to their own legal health and safety responsibilities, members, or the business under which they work, are still responsible to ensure that contractors and suppliers adhere to the overall health and safety regulations.

One of the main reasons for this difficulty is the financial burden and the constraints that exists when Health and Safety measures are put in place, and the adherence to such.

SafetyWallet   addresses this issue head-on through the Rewards Discount and furthermore, in addition to this, SafetyWallet provides a further 12.5% Rewards Discount when the SafetyWallet Contractors and Suppliers benefit is used.

In using this, businesses, and subsequent members, are eligible for a maximum Return on Investment, or more commonly known as ROI, on the Health and Safety Programme that the business implements and maintains.

This does not end there, when becoming a member with SafetyWallet, businesses and employers have the SafetyWallet marketing team on their side. The team is committed to providing adequate support to SafetyWallet members through numerous ways.

The purpose of this is to assist small and medium businesses in growth and branding by providing members with access to the following marketing efforts free of charge:

Small to medium businesses and their contractors

SafetyWallet works not only to promote the Health and Safety of a business, but also works to extend the coverage to the contractors and suppliers of the particular business that joins as a member.

Contractor management may be tedious at the absolute best of times, and SafetyWallet provides incentives based on the number of contractors and suppliers, along with the level of compliance that forms part of the entire compliance portfolio.

SafetyWallet rewards members according to the following tiered rewards system for contractors and suppliers:

- 5 Contractors/Suppliers – an additional 2.5% rewards discount.

-

10 Contractors/Suppliers – an additional 5% rewards discount.

-

15 Contractors/Suppliers – an additional 7.5% rewards discount

-

20 Contractors/Suppliers – an additional 10% rewards discount, and

-

25 Contractors/Suppliers – an additional 12.5% rewards discount.

The reason why SafetyWallet has the reward system pertaining specifically to the contractors and suppliers that a member has is due to the importance of ranking on the contractor and supplier vendor database.

This database is crucial as it holds significant potential in the growth of a business according to the compliance displayed in the audit.

It can bring in a lot more business for the member as members have the option to be visible on the SafetyWallet Contractors and Suppliers vendors platform where other SafetyWallet members can search for a particular service that they require.

Depending on the search term, existing members on the platform will appear on the search result with the rankings of businesses being listed according to their ranking on the beforementioned SafetyWallet Contractor and Supplier vendor database.

By obtaining a higher ranking, members have a better chance of appearing higher up on search results, and this makes it significantly easier for other members and businesses to find them and make use of their services, leading to substantial exposure and growth.

When businesses embark on the journey to become more compliant in Health and Safety, it will inevitably expose the business to benefits associated with growth and expansion as the services and products of fully compliant businesses are trusted more than others.

SafetyWallet makes it significantly easier for businesses to become fully compliant while simultaneously offering services to provide businesses with more exposure and a chance to grow further through offering member advertising.

In addition to the existing comprehensive package that SafetyWallet offers, there is also dedication towards rewarding businesses for ensuring compliance where contractors and suppliers are concerned along with providing additional support therein.
