What is an SSiP Approved Contractor?


What is SSiP and why is it important?

SSiP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) is an umbrella company that houses multiple occupational health and safety schemes. Companies that offer these health and safety schemes must accredit contractors using SSiP health and safety criteria.

To become SSiP approved, a company must meet SSiP health and safety criteria. SSiP’s health and safety criteria ensures construction companies have a health and safety policy in place that includes:

  • The delegation of health and safety responsibilities
  • Access to health and safety information
  • Health and safety advisors
  • Health and safety training arrangements
  • Individuals having necessary health and safety qualifications
  • Monitoring and auditing health and safety processes

Why should you choose an SSiP Accredited contractor?

Quay Facilities is assessed annually against SSiP core health and safety criteria by SafeContractor – a health and safety accreditation system that helps companies achieve SSiP approved status.   

When you choose an SSiP approved contractor, you can be sure that all work is carried out with the highest health and safety standards in mind. This is particularly important if you’re employing a construction company to carry out work in a public area.

All of our employees are trained and qualified in all necessary health and safety practices, so whether you require roller shutter maintenance, emergency repair, or the installation of brand new roller shutters, you can be sure strict health and safety practices are being adhered to.

How are SSiP approvals awarded?

SSiP approvals are awarded through an approved SSiP health and safety scheme provider. For example, Quay Facilities was awarded SSiP approval through SafeContractor.

SafeContractor then awarded Quay Facilities an SMAS Certificate – SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Services) offers a health and safety certification that sits under the SSiP umbrella.
