In brief, SSIP, or Safety Scheme in Procurement, is a standard for health & safety that is recognised throughout the United Kingdom. It was created to ensure a reduction in health and safety assessment costs and bureaucracy in the supply chain, by making cross-recognition between member schemes as effective as possible.
SSIP is now accepted and recognised by thousands of clients across the UK, making the process for vetting contractors a simple process, without the need to compare different standards of accreditation.
