SSiP Accreditation

Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Ltd

Mission Statement

Our mission is to reduce occupational health and safety assessment duplication.

Corporate Values

The specific aims of the SSIP forum are as follows:

  • Encourage and maximise mutual recognition between SSIP member schemes where it is practicable to do so.
  • Operate a robust and consistent Deemed to Satisfy (DtS) agreement between SSIP member schemes that is clear and transparent.
  • Provide confidence in first stage safety capability assessments by developing the SSIP core criteria and ensuring a consistent, reliable and quality-controlled standard of assessment via qualified, competent, assessors.
  • Help and encourage buyers to recognise SSIP and its aims and objectives, and to specify and recognise SSIP member schemes in general, rather than a specific scheme provider.
  • Help buyers and suppliers to achieve value for money through avoiding unnecessary duplication or differing Health & Safety assessment requirements, wherever possible.
  • Promote appropriate core criteria in non-construction works.
  • Promote the work and value of SSIP.
  • Demonstrate savings made to buyers and suppliers as a result of SSIP activity.
  • Actively encourage the standardisation of pre-qualification criteria including PAS 91, and other common industry standards.
