The VMA’s Contractors Directory is designed to help manufacturers find highly qualified contracting services. The Contractors Directory also serves as a registry for contract services providers that have distinguished themselves as Gold, Silver or Bronze Level achievers in Industrial Safety Readiness Training (ISRT).

of Safety Readiness
Contractors participate in the Manufacturing Skills Institute (MSI)’s Industrial Safety Readiness Training (ISRT) in order to accurately confirm the type and level of safety training individuals have received for manufacturing and non-manufacturing spaces through a computer-based training (CBT) system and based upon a standardized curriculum developed by industry. Those who have achieved Gold Level did so by committing 75% or more of their qualified workers to successfully complete the ISRT on an annual basis.
Silver Level is a 50% or more commitment.
Bronze Level is a 25% or more commitment.
Commitment levels are based on confirmed training completions each calendar year; current levels are based on 2013.
