June 16, 2021—Orem, Utah—Avetta®, the leading provider of supply chain risk management software, announced today it is being honored as a recipient of the Top Supply Chain Projects Award for 2021 by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The award recognizes Avetta for helping a Fortune 50 company reduce safety incidents by nearly 30% and save $12 million each year.
Avetta worked with the company to better understand its supplier performance data and global impact of its contractor management program, overall safety trends, top-performing trades, program efficiency and more. Here are the results of the collaborative effort:
- Avoided internal software development, annual roadmap and maintenance costs
- Reduced the company’s average incident rate by nearly 30% based on 2019 data
- Saved Cost/Incident of approximately $40,000 and Cost/Fatality of $1.3 million based on National Safety Council (NSC) estimates
- Lowered supplier loss (discontinued, bankruptcy, legal issue) cost of $100,000/event
- Eliminated costs of about 170,000 contractor hours at an hourly rate of $76 to manage supply chain risk, compliance and qualification for more than 4,000 suppliers
After implementing Avetta’s solution, the company witnessed about a 40% drop in Total Recordable Incident Frequency (TRIF) within its supplier base in Canada, an almost 30% drop in supplier Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) across the UK and a nearly 30% drop in Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) within the U.S. supplier market.
“To make sure we understood the big picture, Avetta analyzed three years of OSHA safety metrics before this company joined our platform,” said Arshad Matin, Avetta President and Chief Executive Officer. “This honor is significant because it recognizes Avetta’s ability to take a deep look at how a company is performing and work with them to make meaningful changes that reduce costs and protect workers.”
