What is SSIP Forum?
SSIP is an umbrella organisation facilitating mutual recognition between existing health and safety pre-qualification schemes such as CHAS, SAFEcontractor, Exor and Altius where practicable to do so. For a full list of applicable schemes and more information are available on the SSIP
The benefits to you
If you hold an BS OHSAS 18001 certificate with Exova
BM TRADA, you are already registered as a SSIP member. This means that you will no longer need to be registered with other health and safety pre-qualification schemes, saving considerable time and expense. If your clients are members of SSIP they will recognise the value of your associated membership through Exova
The benefits to your clients
An important feature of the SSIP is the HSE's message that a buyer can be confident a supplier who is registered or accredited as compliant or approved with an SSIP member has been assessed to the Core Criteria standard (stage 1). The buyer, having verified your status, will only then need to focus on the project or job specific assessment (stage 2).
