    I recently finished re-submitting our Health and Safety information for renewal as a Principal Contractor. It was my first time doing it so I didn't include all the information that was needed first time. SMAS came back within a few days highlighting what was needed and once submitted the company was approved the next day! I was very impressed with the speed of service and the simplicity of the process.

    Our accreditation ran out in September of this year after five months of 'lockdown' where some of our operatives training certificates went out of date, this has caused many issues regarding renewals. With this explained to your staff, the flexible approach in initially extending the renewal date was appreciated, however further discussions with our training provider has resulted in training dates now attained, this knowledge has allowed you to approve our renewal 'worksafe' certificate. The process has been an experience effectively caused by the corona-virus and the protracted lockdown period for both our training providers and ourselves, but with your help and consideration we have achieved our goal. Thank you Kind regards Brian Lambert Blackstone Contractors Ltd

    What is SSIP accreditation?

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) operates safety accreditation through conformity assessment, such as SSIP. All SSIP member schemes have created question sets in alignment with each other to ensure that businesses are able to apply a standardised review of the contractor’s performance regardless of which scheme they are accredited by. This also allows those with certification from one member scheme to more easily be recognised by another.

    Why is Health & Safety important in construction?

    Health and safety accreditation practices originated in construction but have since extended to a number of sectors, evidencing their effectiveness in allowing contractors to prove their strong compliance records.

    Construction as an industry is particularly prone to hazards and dangerous working environments, making health and safety on building sites an essential part of operations. Ensuring your business is properly accredited and demonstrating a dedication to safety in the workplace can help you stand out during the tendering process and is a simple way to make your business more attractive to talented workers in your field.

    Employee and client health and safety has never been more important and with schemes like SMAS Worksafe, your business can be at the forefront of workplace protections.

    Managing contractor health and safety in construction, education and social care

    We work with over 40 organisations to source contractors for a variety of jobs. We offer health and safety management for supply chains in the construction, education and care sectors to allow buyers to easily browse our platform for contractors they think will be most relevant for the work they are in need of.

    SMAS Worksafe clients can also benefit from our managed solution which enables you to benefit from the support of our professional team who carry out work on your behalf. As a client, you are able to outline the level of health and safety compliance you expect from your contractors and our team will follow these guidelines when sourcing workers.

    All SMAS Worksafe member contractors also benefit from consistent health and safety assessments and support from our experienced assessors. This ensures that all workers maintain high standards at all times while carrying out work, meaning you benefit from the highest possible safety standards with every job.

    Do companies need more than basic health and safety rules?

    SSIP membership is not a requirement of contractors to carry out work in construction, education or care. However, the needs of businesses, employees and other stakeholders are paramount in the workplace and most businesses now require some form of health and safety accreditation from contractors working with them.

    Having SSIP accreditation from SMAS Worksafe or being one of our SMAS Preferred Suppliers shows to all potential clients that, not only are you committed to high workplace safety standards, but you are also committing to going above and beyond to keep your workers safe and consider all areas of compliance.

    What is SSIP?

    Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is an umbrella organisation in which member schemes operate in alignment with each other to provide a coordinated framework for health and safety practices at work. This helps reduce the need for multiple accreditation costs and allows buyers to easily assess the standards of businesses across multiple schemes.
