S J Richards Ltd is fully committed towards Health and Safety excellence on site, as part of our commitment we have been a member of SMAS and the NHBC Safemark health and safety schemes for the past 5 years.
SMAS and Safemark are all members of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Forum. The membership of an accredited SSIP scheme has been widely accepted by House Builder as the industry standard requirement for Health and Safety on all of their new build sites.
Since the launch of SSIP, many Clients and Principal Contractors now adopt an SSIP approach to H&S pre-qualification and will only use contractors who hold a valid and in date Scheme certificate issued by an SSIP Member Scheme.
Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the SSIP ‘core criteria’.
