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.
Bardsley expect high levels of health and safety understanding and practice amongst our supply chain members and recognise SSIP accreditation as a mark of this achievement.
At our heart we hold the belief that as much as possible should be done to make the construction industry fairer and more efficient. We support SSIP because they help reduce and remove one of the major frustrations in our industry – the continual need to provide the same information time and time again, albeit in a slightly different format. SSIP helps clients and contractors alike achieve necessary assurances and simultaneously reduces unnecessary administration so that our industry can get on and do what it does it best.
“The BESA is proud of its long standing relationship with SSIP. We actively promote compliance with SSIP as a recognised industry H&S standard. Duncan Sibbald, Head of Certification, The BESA”

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.

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, land and environmental services. We use the SSIP Portal as part 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.
