As members of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSiP) Forum, Alcumus SafeContractor is committed to reducing the bureaucracy and duplication of effort often associated with prequalification. Together with the other members of SSiP, we help both clients and contractors save millions of pounds each year.
What is SSiP?
SSiP was launched in May 2009 to facilitate the mutual recognition of assessments between member schemes, which means contractors do not need to repeat the full assessment process with multiple health and safety assessment schemes.
What are the requirements of SSiP members?
SSiP promotes a minimum standard of health and safety assessment. This standard - the Core Criteria - was adopted by SSiP when the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force. SSiP member health and safety assessment schemes must incorporate the core criteria standard into their assessment of contractor organisational capability.
How can SafeContractor's SSiP membership help contractors?
SafeContractor accreditation is recognised by clients and other SSiP schemes, therefore removing the need for contractors to complete multiple prequalification assessments, saving both clients and contractors time and money.
