SafeContractor is an accreditation scheme that recognises an organisation’s capabilities for health and safety – all in one place. They are a founding member for Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP). SSIP saves contractors and clients time and money, whilst supporting them in demonstrating high levels of health and safety management.

How does it benefit our customers?

      • It reduces the need for completing multiple pre-qualification assessments, saving time, money and stress.
      • Easier and more efficient onboarding.
      • If you are also Safe Contractor accredited, you will be notified we work to the same standards
