SAFECONTRACTOR highlights your continuing good practice around health and Safety.
SafeContractor is an SSIP accreditation that collects and verifies information across health, safety, financial and ethical practices – even extremely specific areas such as permits to work at heights, or hazardous material handling. It even includes the common question sets defined within PAS91.
Why is this important?
SSIP assessments are all judged on core criteria approved by HSE. These core criteria describe what it means for a business to comply with basic health and safety laws.
Demonstrate your commitment to quality practices and processes.
Gain peace of mind that your business has the relevant sustainability paperwork in place to meet industry best practice standards.
Show your sustainability proficiency against competitors.
Stay ahead of the competition when tendering for more work opportunities.
Improve your compliance through verification.
Promote your commitment to sustainability best practices by displaying the approved seal.
Hundreds of organizations access this portal when looking for potential contractors, using the accreditation as a pre-qualification. This shows that you meet Safecontractor requirements and do not pose a health and safety risk to their business, ultimately making you a more attractive prospect.
Once you become accredited, you can use the Safecontractor logo on your website and marketing materials and will also receive van stickers. This will demonstrate your health and safety compliance to potential clients.
The scheme is an SSIP approved accreditation, meaning applying for similar accreditations, such as the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is easier and quicker.
