SMAS Worksafe Accreditation
Graeme Anderson, Commercial Director (pictured) commented, "It is becoming more and more important that we seek certification and accreditation such as this to support our committment to continuous improvement. WorkSafe is particularly important as we have engineers and technician on site continuously and this award provides our customers, such as the MOD and Nuclear Industry, with further confidence in our ability".
Since the launch of SSIP, many Clients and Principal Contractors now adopt an SSIP approach to H&S pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in-date certificate issued by an SSIP Member Scheme.
Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the SSIP ‘core criteria’.
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, contractors holding a SMAS H&S certificate will be recognised by the other Member Schemes who offer mutual recognition – meaning that you should not have to complete a further full H&S assessment with them.
