Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the SSIP ‘core criteria’. A key aim of the SSIP Forum is to reduce the burden and cost of H&S bureaucracy across the construction industry and as part of this, your SMAS H&S certificate will be recognised by the other SSIP members who offer mutual recognition.

How do I obtain SMAS approval?

SMAS Standards Pay particular attention to a number of areas. These include:

  • Health and safety policy
  • Risk assessments
  • Method statements
  • Accident reporting
  • Insurances
  • Training records
  • Management systems.

A Cornwall Training consultant complete the whole project for you. The first step is to explain the process. This can be done in person, over the phone, or via a skype/video link, if preferred. A full audit of your processes and practices will be undertaken and anything that is found to be missing, or requires amending, or updating will be undertaken by our consultant, who will then apply for SMAS on your behalf. Approval is guaranteed – provided you adhere to our advice and guidance.
