What is the SMAS Accreditation?
SMAS Worksafe is a leading Health and Safety Accreditation scheme in the UK and is used to show main contractors and large clients that your business is safe to work in. The SMAS accreditation is nationally recognised for delivering expert risk assessments while also attracting potential clients that you previously may have struggled to obtain.
The SMAS online assessment is a co-founding member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) which enables you to demonstrate to prospective clients that you meet health and safety standards.
Many large organisations and local authorities are now insisting that you are accredited before starting a contract. Once you are found compliant, you will be issued a certificate valid for 12 months. If you want to remain a member of SMAS, this will need to be renewed yearly.
You might have noticed that many companies have several Health and Safety Accreditations in place. This is due to the fact that certain clients prefer a particular accreditation scheme, usually one that best fits their ethos and needs. You will be able to apply for other SSIP Accreditations by completing a ‘Deem to Satisfy’ and we can help you with this too.
The SMAS Worksafe Accreditation can open doors for your business to win more contracts but you might not have the time or resources to complete the SMAS Worksafe application process yourself.
In addition to SMAS, our health and safety consultants can assist you with other accreditation possibilities for your business quickly and easily. These other accreditations vary from CHAS, SafeContractor, Constructionline and Acclaim.
