There are many Health and Safety Accreditation Schemes available to businesses in the UK. The main purpose of the schemes is to avoid repeat applications by suppliers and contractors to become approved as health and safety compliant suppliers and to improve health and safety within businesses.
Often, organisations or buyers will require their suppliers or sub-contractors to be accredited with a particular scheme in order to win or commence work.
OM Safety Solutions Ltd can help your business to achieve compliance and gain accreditation with any health and safety accreditation scheme. Some of the most popular ones requested by organisations or buyers for their supply chain are:
- SafeMark by NHBC
Many of the above accreditations are part of the Safety Schemes in Procurement Forum (SSIP). A key aim of the SSIP Forum is to reduce the burden and cost of health and safety bureaucracy across the construction industry. As part of this, if you apply for one of the accreditations and wish to gain another for a particular project or client, often this can be arranged with a shorter assessment process.
We aim to take the stress out of helping you achieve compliance with the scheme most relevant to you and can advise you on the benefits of each. All of the assessment preparation and documentation is completed by one of our experienced health and safety consultants, who will guide through the process and ensure that you achieve compliance and accreditation within the timescales agreed.
We have a 100% success rate with all of the accreditation applications we support our clients with and can ensure that you have the necessary systems in place for future administration and renewal of the accreditation in line with the required standards.
