Preferred Supplier with SMAS Worksafe

Win more business as well as demonstrate competence to the organisations you work with.

Tendering for work is becoming increasingly competitive. Principle contractors and other organisations are beginning to expect more from the contractors they work with and now typically ask for information about other areas of the operations - including its environmental management alongside areas like Modern Slavery.

The SMAS Worksafe additional question set has been designed to help you fulfil these requirements for inclusion in future tender submissions, as well as for your existing clients.

Simply complete the additional questions at the point of completing your SSIP Health & Safety application and we will package everything up for you in one neat package, ready to share with those that need it.

We also recognise that some of this may be unfamiliar and perhaps you're looking at areas like Environmental for the first time. That's why our service has been designed to work with you, support you in understanding the requirements and assist you in putting together information which is appropriate for your business size and activities.

SMAS is a proud member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Forum.

Since the launch of SSIP, many Clients and Principal Contractors now adopt this approach to H&S pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in date certificate issued by an SSIP Member Scheme.

A key aim of the SSIP Forum is to reduce the burden and cost of H&S bureaucracy across the construction industry and as part of this, contractors holding a SMAS H&S certificate will be recognised by the other Member Schemes who offer mutual recognition – meaning that you should not have to complete a further full H&S assessment with them.

Benefits:

  • Visibility to 000’s of organisations wanting to work with new suppliers
  • Widely recognised by industry as to most efficient route to demonstrating health & safety
  • A fast and effective route to satisfying multiple tender requirements
  • Attain other SSIP Scheme certificates without the need to undertake another assessment
  • Holding a valid SSIP certificate means a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the SSIP 'core criteria'
  • Full details can be found at www.ssip.org.uk
