Commercial Painting Contractors

ISN Certification: Why It’s Important 

  • Commercial construction projects are complex, often with several contractors (including the painting team) working with stakeholders to get the job done.  It’s not feasible for project managers to take on the additional burden of ensuring all contractors meet safety and regulatory guidelines. However, it’s still a crucial step in any construction project.

    That’s where ISNetworld plays a large role in bridging the gap and mitigating that burden. According to their website: 

    ISN is the global leader in contractor and supplier information management. Since 2001, ISN has helped enterprises proactively reduce risk by qualifying and monitoring contractors to promote safe and sustainable operations throughout the supply chain.

    ​The all-inclusive and configurable subscription-based platform, ISNetworld®, helps companies identify the most qualified contractor companies that meet and exceed industry, regulatory, and company-specific standards in the areas of health, safety, quality, insurance, training, cybersecurity, and ESG.

    However, to join the ISN family, contractors and suppliers have to undergo rigorous education and certification processes. Essentially, project managers and decision-makers use ISNetworld and its platform to vet contractors and assure they’ll be the right fit. OSHA logs, insurance coverage, industry-specific certifications, and other documentation are available at stakeholders’ fingertips.

    Contractors like our team who choose to become ISN-certified are well-connected to a network of other vetted, certified professionals. When you decide to work with us (or any other ISN contractor or vendor), you’ll know you’re working with consummate professionals from the start. Otherwise, you risk compliance and safety violations, which ultimately slow productivity and can even stop it altogether.

On average, our employees have more than seven years of experience. We became ISN-certified to highlight these factors that set us apart from the competition.
