Update: Changes to SMAS Worksafe SSIP application.
Back in April due to the unforeseen impact of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) had upon the construction industry and particular those wanting to renew their health and safety application, SMAS Worksafe made a number of changes to the SSIP assessment to support members who may be struggling with retrieving information.
Companies were given additional support, where if they couldn’t access pertinent information (due to furloughs and/or site/office closures) but wish to keep important certifications in place during this period they were able to use documents from previous applications.
Now with much of the industry back to work under new social distancing guidelines, the changes made will be removed and the assessment will revert back to its normal process as of Tuesday 30th June.
This allows us to make sure that those who are going through their SSIP assessment are up to the required standards to be on-site, which is incredibly important for both us and our clients.
