What is SMAS?
SMAS Is an industry recognised approach to Health and Safety Certification.
Since the launch of SSIP, many Construction companies and Principal Contractors now adopt an this approach to Health & Safety pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in date Scheme certificate issued by an SSIP Member Scheme.
Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the '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.
