Competent Person

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires that all employers irrespective of their size are “to appoint one or more competent people to help them implement the measures they need to take to comply with the legal requirements.
That could be a member of the workforce, the owner/manager, or an external consultant. The competent person should focus on the significant risks and those with serious consequences”.

SSIP - Safety Standards In Procurement

SSIP schemes are great for business!
Many potential customers will want you to demonstrate that you work responsibly & manage safety well. A recognised SSIP scheme like CHAS, SafeContractor, SMAS or Constructionline amongst others are a great way of you demonstrating this and will help you win contracts & tenders.

We have worked with many businesses to increase their Health & Safety compliance to the point where they can apply for accreditation by a member of SSIP.
