How to Create an Online Orientation in GoContractor

04 December 2020

Creating orientations in GoContractor is simple. Below we show you how to create an orientation in our easy-to-use platform.

At one time, having subcontract workers complete your job site orientation could take up a huge portion of a safety manager or superintendent’s work day, wasting hundreds of hours every month depending on the project size.

Now, with online orientations available through software like ours, you can ensure workers are trained before even stepping foot on the job site.

Using GoContractor to manage your subcontract workers is easy. Here, we show you how to upload and create a job site orientation within our platform. We’ll explore how managers and administrators use GoContractor, how to create an orientation in GoContractor, and what your workers can expect.

How do administrators use GoContractor?

Managers and administrators (those who manage your GoContractor account, this might be your safety manager, site superintendent, etc.) use GoContractor to manage their subcontract workforce. Watch the video below to see how you can create a project within the GoContractor platform, require workers to complete orientations, upload documents like identification, safety certifications and more.

How to upload an orientation to GoContractor

Uploading and creating an orientation in GoContractor is very easy. GoContractor was purpose built for contractors to use and is simple and straightforward to navigate.

Workers simply register or log in to their GoContractor account, select your project, and will be taken directly to your orientation. Workers are guided through the platform in a step-by-step process to upload any documentation you require and to complete any site safety training and quizzes you’ve provided.
