What is SSiP?
Safety Schemes in Procurement (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.
As members of the SSiP Forum Alcumus SafeContractor is committed to reducing the bureaucracy and duplication of effort often associated with pre-qualification. Together with the other members of SSiP, we help both contractors and clients save millions of pounds each year.
What are the benefits of SSIP?
SSIP is intended to reduce the duplication and demands on suppliers to have multiple certifications to different schemes, saving them time and money and allowing you to focus on your day-to-day.
SSIP registration is a key indicator that your company can demonstrate high levels of health and safety management. It shows an ongoing commitment to best practice within the work environment and the required levels of protection for your staff and contractors. As this sector is now more regulated than ever before, SSIP is the simple way to prove that your company takes this matter seriously.
More than 470 major client organisations only use contractors and suppliers that have the SafeContractor SSIP, but hundreds more use any SSIP.
SSiP Accreditation Cost
SafeContractor SSIP starts at £259 for sole traders but the cost is generally based on the size and risk of your business.
Once your business is registered with SSIP, you will be eligible for ‘deem to satisfy’ registration with many other pre-qualification portals, which could result in significant discounts within the scheme.
How can SafeContractor's SSiP membership help contractors?
SafeContractor accreditation is recognised by clients and other SSiP schemes and removes the need for contractors to complete multiple pre-qualification assessments saving you time and money.
