Health and Safety should be an integral part of your business and there are many different accreditation schemes which allow you to highlight your competence and best practices in health and safety, but how do I know which one to apply for?
The first question should be, what do your clients demand? Clients will demand different accreditations based on their individual and if you are unsure where to start, you need to determine which accreditation will open the most doors for your business once you are accredited, depending on what type of work or tendering opportunities you are looking for.
It is becoming common practice now for potential customers/clients to request that Suppliers have a current SSIP accreditation as a pre-requisite prior to awarding work. We advise that you refer to your customers/clients to ascertain their specific requirements in this matter prior to starting the process.
There are many SSIP members, including (but not limited to) the following:
*Please contact us to discuss your requirements
For a current list of all SSIP members please see the SSIP website: ssip.org.uk
Having a current SSIP accreditation demonstrates to your potential Customers and Clients that you have undertaken a Health and Safety assessment and met the required standards, thus helping to mitigate their potential liabilities if they engage your services, thus putting you at the front of the queue on their preferred Contractors List.
All SSIP assessments are based on the SSIP Core Criteria; therefore, holding a valid SSIP accreditation demonstrates compliance to the specified Health and Safety standards which are in line with the Health & Safety At Work Act 1974 and its applicable substantive Regulations.

Deem to Satisfy
All members of SSIP recognise each other’s Health & Safety Assessments and Standards, so generally you should only ever have to be accredited by one SSIP member to be accepted by them all.
Therefore, if you already hold a valid SSIP assessment then you can apply for what is known as a ‘Deem to Satisfy’ assessment with a secondary assessment provider.
If your business requires multiple SSIP assessments please contact the Watson & Watson Office Team so that we may advise and assist you on the best course of action to take going forward and the process of applying for a ‘Deem to Satisfy’ assessment.
