CHAS is a founding member of SSIP and played an integral part of its launch in May 2009. Supported by the
Health and Safety Executive (HSE),
SSIP acts as an umbrella organisation by having cross-recognition between its members. Its main aims are to
reduce health and safety assessment
costs and duplication in the supply chain.
SSIP Mission Statement"Our mission is to act as an umbrella organisation to facilitate mutual recognition between health and safety assessment schemes wherever it is practicable to do so"For us to achieve and maintain our SSIP registration we, like other schemes must demonstrate and maintain the standards required by HSE through an annual independent third-party audit. The audit is in two parts, we continue to demonstrate quality management to ISO 9001 and health and safety pre-qualification to the HSE approved standard.
