Get an ISNetworld® ‘A’ Grade

The ISNetworld® Management Safety Questionnaire (MSQ) is a large chunk of your hiring client grading components and can be time-consuming.  Use our quick easy compliance tips to achieve an ‘A’.

There are three management safety questionnaires (MSQ®) you will be required to answer with your new ISNetworld® membership:

  1. General MSQ®- this asks you questions about your company Health, Safety, and Environmental policies.
  2. United States – questions based on your HSE safety programs
  3. Owner / hiring client – this asks you questions


  1. Answer each and every question with honest answers.
  2. Subsidiary company and operating under any other name – this is import for two reasons.
    • TRIR –this is an important tip that requires an in-depth this will be answered thoroughly in a future blog. But for a quick conversation on this, you are welcome to contact us at 844-514-8355.
    • Documents – specifically Insurance or EMR – if you maintain your insurance under another name and currently do business as another company your review of these documents will be rejected unless any and all names are entered in as subsidiary names. i.e. company name changed from LLC. To incorporated.
  1. The United States:
    1. Health Safety and Environmental- questions based on your HSE safety programs. This is where you answer questions about your current safety programs.  Ideally, you will have all the necessary programs that ISNetworld® is requiring. However, if you do not it is probably because it is not a hazard that affects your line of work.  Even so, ISN® is categorizing you by the work types you selected and will generate general industry hazards for you so even though these hazards are not a current issue for your clients they are for other clients.  Or, simply contact us for additional ISNetworld® safety programs are turnaround is quick (within 10-15 minutes)
  2. Hiring Client / Owner Client – this is most important but the same thing applies here with your safety programs.  We highly suggest you attempt to meet all the requirements first.

The alternative is once you have submitted your safety programs and they are reviewed you can now ask for an exception for the program. The client has the option to accept or deny the exception (advisory: keep the exception requests to less than 10% or you will be negatively affected and impressions from prospective hiring clients will be negative as well.)
