Safety Schemes in Procurement
Posted on 20th September 2023 at 11:35
We support businesses like yours to gain recognised Health and Safety Accreditations such as CHAS, Safe Contractor, Acclaim, Avetta, Achilles UVDB & Building Confidence, Construction line, Facilities line and more.
These accreditations are awarded by third-party registration schemes under the SSIP umbrella and demonstrate your commitment to health & safety.
Armed with these accreditations, your customers can be confident that your Health & Safety Management meets the core criteria.
What Does SSIP Accreditation Support Mean For Your Business?
Small businesses often face many requests for prequalification questionnaires, frequently requesting the same information over and over again.
The result? A burden of paperwork.
Third-party registration schemes assess a company’s health and safety arrangements and encourage straightforward mutual recognition between the SSIP Member Schemes.
The law requires anyone employing or engaging a supplier to carry out construction work to take reasonable steps to ensure that they have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil that role (or if they are an organisation, the organisational capability).
This can be clearly demonstrated by holding an SSIP accreditation.
