SMAS Worksafe Certificate Awarded to SafeStand®

26/02/2014

Following a recent SMAS Worksafe audit of SafeStand® Ltd Management Systems we are delighted to have been awarded a SMAS Worksafe Certificate. The evidence provided by SafeStand® Ltd demonstrates that our Health and Safety management systems meet the requirements as set out in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and successfully demonstrates our Core Stage 1 H&S Competence.

SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Services) is a member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Forum. 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 Scheme certificate issued by an SSIP Forum member.

Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor will have demonstrated their Stage 1 H&S competence by meeting the ‘core criteria’ as set out in the Construction (Design and Management) regulations or the H&S module in PAS91.

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, our Worksafe certificate will be recognised by the other SSIP members who offer mutual recognition. Full details can be found at www.ssip.org.uk.
