SSIP - CHAS, SafeContractor and Constructionline

Since its launch in 2009 SSIP is already making inroads into reducing the burden of bureaucracy faced by small and medium sized businesses.

Through making information about a supplier's certification available to buyers, this will further eliminate the need for suppliers to subscribe to multiple competence schemes and we start to embrace SSIP's core philosophy of mutual recognition.

At A W Associates LLP, we assist people throughout Kent with their SSIP systems.

Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP)

CHAS, SafeContractor and Constructionline are now all part of the SSIP.

In order to be awarded the relevant contract, the companies and individuals applying must meet health and safety standards.

The SSIP scheme was developed to avoid each individual contract having to assess individual supplier’s health and safety competence. Speak to us for more details.

SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) is an umbrella organisation that simplifies the prequalification process for contractors and suppliers in construction-related industries. It achieves this by facilitating mutual recognition among independent health and safety assessment schemes.

It is recognised by the HSE.
