What is SSIP?
Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) refer to the practices and initiatives implemented to ensure that safety standards are met during the procurement process. These schemes aim to prioritise the health and safety of workers, users, and the general public by integrating safety considerations into the procurement of goods, services, and construction projects.
SSIP founded in May 2009 by CHAS, EXOR, Build UK, Constructionline, and SEC Group with the full support of the HSE. The main aim of SSIP was to simplify the prequalification process and encourage straightforward mutual recognition between its members and their accreditations.
