20th Oct 2014Accreditations
Summit Electrical have been awarded a top Health & Safety accreditation by SMAS.
SMAS is a proud 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, your Worksafe certificate will be recognised by the other SSIP members who offer mutual recognition – meaning that you should not have to complete a further full H&S assessment.
