In July SSIP were invited to attend the HSE CONIAN Event and give a presentation on SSIP and our relationship with the Common Assessment Standard.
The presentation confirms that the Common Assessment Standard recognises SSIP member scheme* assessments as exemption from the bulk of health and safety questions (via an SSIP certificate) and confirms the 4 supplementary questions required for the H&S module (see slide 15). To view the presentation please click the image below.
“We hope the CAS will embrace the excellent work of SSIP which has been achieved by both our members and also the increasing number of organisations who have demonstrated compliance with the SSIP Core Criteria. SSIP will continue to support SMEs and micro businesses to demonstrate compliance with health and safety legislation in a proportionate, achievable way, as supported by the HSE”.
