Safety Services (UK) Ltd can help your business achieve an SSIP Certificate and Accreditation ensuring your business is recognised for Health and Safety Excellence.

What is SSIP Accreditation?

SSIP (Safety Scheme In Procurement) is an umbrella organisation that promotes a minimum standard of Health and Safety assessments for contractors. It is also backed by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).

SSIP members who provide these schemes accredit suppliers through conducting assessments. These require the supplier to complete forms which are sent remotely to an external auditor who then assesses current Health and Safety practices and procedures against SSIP core criteria endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) before being recognised with an SSIP Certificate and Accreditation.

By obtaining an SSIP Certificate and Accreditation, you can reduce the need for repetitive health and safety paperwork when bidding on new tenders, working with large construction firms etc.
