You will benefit from having our support with new and existing contractors reaching health & safety compliance. We will give you regular updates so you can see the SSIP status of all your contractors. You will also gain access to the SMAS Portal where you can browse all our SSIP accredited contractors.

Not just Health & Safety
We’re always striving to go further and provide more for our clients and make SMAS Worksafe’s services extend beyond health & safety. Our team can provide support and advice regarding supply chain compliance and help support environmental aspects too.
