Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is the mutual recognition scheme for occupational health and safety standards particularly within construction. SSIP facilitates mutual recognition between health and safety pre-qualification schemes saving time, effort and cost of multiple certifications.
It reduces duplication and demands on suppliers to have multiple certifications to different schemes saving them time and money and allowing them to focus on the job.
“Since inception of SSIP we are pleased to advise mutual recognition has enabled savings to suppliers in excess of £280m* an addition to the time savings by all parties involved. We are keen to work with any buyer who would like to know more about the benefits of recognising the many thousands of suppliers who are currently assessed by SSIP members.”Eleanor Eaton, Chairman, SSIP
