SSIP Supporter Membership is available to all other interested parties who wish to support the SSIP aims, objectives and ethos, such as major contractors, clients and Trade Associations.
Supporter membership of the SSIP may also be offered at the discretion of the SSIP FMG to other expert interested parties or organisations that can contribute to promoting, improving or enhancing health and safety competence in procurement.
The core values of the Considerate Constructors Scheme are to improve the standard of considerate construction across the UK and Ireland. We are therefore delighted to be a Supporter Member of the SSIP, who provide a crucial way of helping to maintain and improve the standard of the procurement of services from the construction industry.
Edward Hardy, Chief Executive, Considerate Constructors Scheme
ECA is proud to be a supporter of SSIP, and we strongly recommend the use of the SSIP assessment standard by buyers. All of the largest ECA member companies comply with the SSIP standard, as a minimum, and we actively support the increasing number of smaller ECA members who see the considerable benefits of achieving the standard.
Paul Reeve FIOSH, ECA Director of Business
Supporter membership of SSIP demonstrates our commitment to the recognition of SSIP as an acceptable industry standard and helps our members to achieve value for money.
As a local authority we provide a full range of council services including education, social work and land and environmental services. We use the SSIP Portal as art of our contractor procurement process and publicise the council commitment to SSIP via the workings of the council contractors management group.
We use a large number of suppliers ranging from small suppliers through to large developers and therefore we would like to recognise SSIP as the minimum standard of H&S expectations for our suppliers.
Mears have promoted SSIP for 10+ years by making it mandatory for all our subcontractors to hold a valid SSIP certificate. We believe safety is one of the most important components in our business and recognise SSIP as the standard.
