SSIP Accreditation – CHAS, ConstructionLine, Safe Contractor and more

What is SSIP Accreditation?

Contractor & Van

SSIP Accreditation is an umbrella body for Health and Safety accreditation schemes such as CHAS, Constructionline, Safe Contractor, SMAS, Acclaim and others. Once accredited with an individual SSIP member you fulfil the requirements for joining any of the other member schemes saving you time and money if you need to join other SSIP schemes.

When you might need SSIP Accreditation

  • You won a contract and need to be accredited before being allowed on site?
  • You need to provide evidence of having access to a health and safety Competent Person?
  • You are struggling with providing the evidence requested by the accreditation body?
  • Have you already applied for accreditation and been rejected?

Many potential clients now ask for accreditation as part of the tendering process or worse still, you’ve won a contract and then realise you need to be accredited before your client lets you on site. This need to demonstrate credibility goes higher up the chain too as your clients need to show their clients that they are employing competent sub-contractors vetted to a SSIP standards.

The Benefits of SSIP Accreditation

A clear benefit of becoming SSIP accredited is to increase the amount of business you win. When clients are looking for contactors, a stamp of approval from a participating SSIP scheme improves your credibility by demonstrating the competency of your organisation – it’s like presenting qualifications and a good CV in order to get a new job.

Once you become accredited with one SSIP member scheme, the requirements for entry into other SSIP schemes will already have been met as the required processes and documentation are already in place. This makes it easier to win more business as your future tendering processes will be quicker and simpler.

Outsourcing the accreditation process also improves productivity by saving you time and money and therefore speeding up future tenders.

Why use MBHS for application?

We start by carrying out a gap analysis. This identifies current processes and documentation that are already acceptable or highlights any issues that we feel could potentially lead to a failed application. This means you only pay for the level of service you need rather than us selling you an inclusive package or a simple submission only package that doesn’t correct any of the failings.

Once any failings have been identified, we will work with you to correct those failings and will support you throughout the whole process to maximise our chances of success.

When you use McCormack Benson Health & Safety to apply for CHAS, Constructionline, Safe Contractor or any other SSIP accredited scheme, we will work with you from start to finish to understand the individual needs of your business and provide a bespoke solution to maximise the chances of a successful application.

We are confident in our ability to get you accredited
