  • Craftsmen are not tied up performing attendant duties; therefore production is not adversely affected.
  • All attendants are hired locally, with the exception of rural plants, refineries and overseas projects, in turn limiting per diem and other expenses.
  • SSP reduces the number of multiple contractor employees by having a centralized pool of trained safety attendant personnel that can be dispatched and assigned to all areas of the project, thus reducing the total man-hour costs of the project.
