Accreditation Services

Safecontractor, CHAS, SMAS or another third party accreditation?

Third-party certification schemes (like Safecontractor, SMAS, or CHAS) have been around for many years, with SSIP being founded in May 2009. Some organisations now use these schemes as part of the contractor vetting or contractor approval systems. Whilst there is no legal requirement for third-party certification, these accreditation schemes are used and recognised by a wide range of organisations as part of the procurement process.

Many suppliers and their (potential) clients choose to use the services of a third party accreditation scheme for health and safety, with the purpose of helping them to manage their tendering or procurement needs.  Some organisations, for example, insist that all of their contractors have registered with, and have been accredited by, a third-party agency. There have been several changing in the management of these accreditation systems over the last couple of years, with more and more information being required.

CHAS, Safecontractor, etc. – if it’s a barrier to trade: talk to us

The principle behind all of these third-party accreditation schemes is relatively simple and straightforward. A provider of services (a contractor), must first register their company details with the accreditation company. As well as doing this, they must also provide information relating to their health and safety policy and associated supporting documentation and demonstrate their commitment to the management of health and safety. This will include health safety training records, risk assessments, method statements, first aid, insurance cover and other relevant factors.
