    Join the UK's SSIP Scheme of choice and attain a Health & Safety accreditation recognised by thousands of organisations

    A SMAS Worksafe certificate has allowed thousands of contractors to quickly and simply demonstrate their commitments to workplace safety.

    Since the launch of SSIP assessments, many Construction companies and Principal Contractors now adopt this approach to Health & Safety pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in-date scheme certificate issued by an SSIP Member Scheme.

    A key aim of the SSIP Forum is to reduce the burden and cost of H&S bureaucracy across the construction industry and as part of this, your SMAS H&S certificate will be recognised by other SSIP members who offer mutual recognition.

    To further enhance your businesses compliance beyond Health & Safety we’ve introduced our Worksafe PQQ Accreditation which gives you the ability to answer additional question sets and show your commitment to safe and responsible workplace management.
