Successful assessment by SMAS Worksafe means that an organisation meets the recognised Stage 1 standard for H&S. This standard is recognised by the HSE and accreditation schemes that have quality assurance processes. SSIP assessments are all judged on core criteria approved by HSE.
These core criteria describe what it means for a construction business to comply with basic health and safety law.
The SMAS Worksafe assessment itself looks to ensure that contractors have (and use) an effective H&S Management System to ensure that any work they are engaged in is, so far as reasonably practical, carried out without risk to health and safety.
