CDM Regulations 2015 state that Clients are responsible for checking that sub-contractors have the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience to undertake the work which they are contracting them to complete. This can be a time consuming burden on resources to complete in-house.
By asking for contractors to complete a H&S assessment by an SSIP Member Scheme, you are successfully meeting this pre-qualification requirement.
SMAS is an SSIP Member Scheme and assesses contractors based on the SSIP core criteria. This means that contractors and Clients can benefit from a consistent approach to H&S, reducing the need for excessive procedures and wasteful costs to the supply chain.
SMAS can also manage H&S assessments on behalf of Clients, reducing their costs and enabling them to focus resources on on-site assessments.
Our Client Services provide full management of contractor H&S assessments on your behalf. This is supported by our online portal which enables you to track all your contractors in one place.
Our specialist team will track H&S certifications with each contractor and manage renewals when required; providing you confidence that the H&S pre-qualification stage to assessments is being managed, enabling you to focus on your core business activities.Register for access to the SMAS Client Portal
