SMAS is a leading Accreditation Scheme that is proving ever more popular with main contractors who want to assure themselves of the health and safety compliance of their sub contract companies. Many companies are now insisting that their suppliers and sub-contractors be accredited before they contract with them.
To the inexperienced business, SMAS looks like a lengthy bureaucratic process, to us it is just a series of processes that do not faze us at all. The key is in giving the assessors what they want first time, with evidence to back up your claims, to avoid any rejections.
