Before being awarded a health and safety accreditation, the contractor in question must pass a series of audits. The SSIP auditors (Safety Schemes in Procurement) conduct a thorough check into the contractor by looking at documentation and procedures to health and safety policies.
After the initial audit, the contractor must complete a series of questionnaires and provide evidence to show that they will comply with strict health and safety regulations.
The sole overriding benefit of choosing a company with SSIP status is peace of mind. You can be assured that the company you choose will adhere to health and safety regulations while providing the service required.
