What is SMAS Accreditation?
SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Service), is a popular and well-recognised SSIP which demonstrates that a contractor has met the core criteria in their health and safety assessment.
It is one of the main SSIPs alongside CHAS, SafeContractor and ConstructionLine and is highly recommended if you would like to increase the visibility of your business and get approval for tender lists.
Once you have obtained your SMAS Worksafe accreditation, you will be recognised amongst all other member schemes as meeting health and safety standards; hence, you will not have to complete any further health and safety assessments.
Benefits of SMAS Worksafe Accreditation
Having a SMAS Accreditation is hugely beneficial for your business as it will enable you to use the SMAS WorkSafe logo and certification.
This demonstrates competence with health and safety practices and procedures making you appear far more reliable and capable to potential clients and satisfying the HSE if they ever pay a visit.
You will also be included in the SMAS database which increases your visibility to clients and is far more cost-effective than a major marketing campaign.
