SSIP / SMAS - Safety Management Advisory Services

Why do I need to demonstrate my core Stage 1 H&S competence?
Clients with duties under CDM 2015 must satisfy themselves that the businesses they engage or appoint are competent in H&S. This means that they must make reasonable enquiries to check that the organization or individual is competent to do the relevant work and can allocate adequate resources to it. Many clients now outsource the responsibility the Stage 1 competence to H&S schemes recognised by SSIP such as Worksafe Contractor and Worksafe Consultant.

What do I need to do to demonstrate Stage 1 H&S Competence?
The HSE have set out the core criteria in Appendix 4 of the CDM 2015 Approved Code of Practice (ACoP). These criteria were developed in consultation with the construction industry. To meet these criteria you will need to demonstrate your competence in areas such as your health and safety policy, risk assessments, training records, accident records etc

Why should I use the SMAS Worksafe scheme over other schemes?

Speed – assessments are normally completed within 7 working days
