Obtain SSIP Accreditation

According to data gathered by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the fatal injury rate in the construction industry is four times higher than the rate in other industries. As a result, it is critical for construction contractors to demonstrate that they adhere to high levels of health and safety standards on a consistent basis.

Obtain SSIP Accreditation

What is the purpose of CHAS Accreditation?

In order for clients to assess a contractor’s health and safety standards, particularly compliance with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM), the HSE and the construction industry collaborated to develop a consistent set of questions to assess health and safety compliance. The organisation Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) was appointed to accredit certification bodies to conduct the health and safety compliance assessments.

There are a number of these programmes available, including CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme), which is particularly popular with local authorities, SafeContractor, Acclaim, and other similar organisations. Each system follows a set of procedures that are identical. Because many Buyers demand you to have an SSIP certificate as a prequalification before you can tender, it is critical that you have the accreditation.

How Do I Become a CHAS Accredited Professional?
