Health and safety are the integral parts of any business, and there is a significant number of different accreditation schemes that can highlight the best practice and competence of a company in workplace health and safety.
In the construction and utility industry, health and safety assessments are required to decide and establish the abilities and standards of an organization to meet different requirements. To support single standards for health and safety for the contractor’s safety evaluation SSIP plays its role. To create a sense of uniformity among companies about the mutual understanding and recognition between the health and safety schemes, a proper organization plays its role.
SSIP – streamlining the process of health and safety management:
SSIP is the most affordable mean of achieving health and safety approval. SSIP stands for Safety Schemes In Procurement, and it is a non-profitable organization that creates recognition and mutual understanding between a variety of health and safety schemes to avoid the repetition of the full assessment process for multiple health and safety assessment schemes.
SSIP certification authorizes an impressive level of workplace health and safety management. It also indicates the ongoing commitment of a company to the best practice of health and safety management in an organization and protection level for staff and contractors.
This Certification is not only about the seriousness of a company about health and safety, but it is also beneficial for the recruitment of fresh talent for a company. This Certification is a great way to impress potential employees about the serious commitment of a company to assure their commitment to the safety and health of employees.
What does SSIP do?
The SSIP approved Certification fulfils the criteria for its member schemes. Some of the SSIP member schemes are:
- Altius VA
- Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS)
- SAFE contractor

Clients are more likely to have any single certification because all have the same standards.
