CHAS & SSIP Accreditation
Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) is the umbrella organisation set up to facilitate mutual recognition between health and safety assessment schemes wherever it is practicable to do so.
There are over 40 SSIP registered member schemes currently and the Deemed to Satisfy arrangement means that a company is only required to undergo a full health and safety assessment with one scheme. Other schemes will then offer registration recognising that the required standard has already been achieved.
CHAS is one of a number of health and safety assessment schemes available to businesses and is probably the most well known, being one of the first third-party accreditation schemes in the construction sector, and often acts as a type of pre-qualification during the tender process.
As their Competent Person, many of our clients in both construction and non-construction, employ us to assist in the compilation of their annual SSIP renewal paperwork. This entails a review of their H&S documentation and systems and the progress made in the last 12 months. We then facilitate the completion of application forms and assist with the accreditation process.
We have maintained a 100% client pass rate for the past eight years for CHAS, SMAS and Safe Contractor applications.
We offer several online courses that can support your CHAS application (or any SSIP application).
