We are pleased to have gained a SMAS Worksafe certificate (www.smasltd.com).
This means that we have met the SSIP core criteria recognised by the HSE and other SSIP accreditation schemes.
Meeting the SSIP Core Criteria demonstrates that we are serious about H&S and have (and use) an effective H&S Management System to ensure that any work they are engaged in is, so far as reasonably practical, carried out without risk to health and safety.
As a Principal Contractor we have also successfully demonstrated that we plan, manage and monitor the construction and coordination of matters relating to health and safety.
Construction Health And Safety Scheme (CHAS)
Acorn Safety Services Limited is a member of CHAS. CHAS is a founding member of the SSiP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) forum.
SSiP promotes a minimum standard of health and safety assessment. This standard – the Core Criteria – was adopted by SSiP when the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force.
SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.
Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.
