For members, SMAS Worksafe is becoming more than just health and safety.
As from Monday 8th June 2020, they are changing their entry level assessment to include environmental, quality, anti-bribery, corruption and modern slavery.
They’ve made this change because of an increasing demand from clients requesting this information to further vet contractors and these additional questions will be included in the health and safety SSIP assessment.
Achieve Preferred Supplier status under SMAS Worksafe.
Completing the additional question means you’re able to evidence a rounded approach to your legal responsibilities as well as showing a conscientious approach to how you operate your business. Additional questions provide a fluid approach for procurement, enabling your organisation to upload processes for tendering opportunities.
With Preferred Supplier you can now demonstrate your compliance in areas such as envirnomental management and quality management, two areas often requested by larger clients.
Our Compliance Services department carry out regular SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) accreditation applications on behalf of our clients and have a proven track record of assisting our clients in successful accreditation which subsequently assists them to demonstrate compliance and hence win more contracts, which is why we are pretty confident that we would obtain you the accreditation you require quickly and with minimum of fuss and disruption to yourselves.
Our Compliance Services Director Stephen Laws says “This new change will be a good thing for companies, either showcasing their current processes or developing them to raise the standard across the board. The changes will make the process tougher however the Lighthouse team are here to assist every step of the way.”
