Achieving certification to ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management) means you comply with the core criteria of SSIP, (Safety Schemes in Procurement). All clients certified by BSI for ISO 45001 and the SSIP Scheme are automatically registered in to the online SSIP Portal, (www.ssipportal.org.uk), giving you exposure to new business opportunities.
Not only this, but you can remove duplication of certifications and assessments by being recognized by other SSIP member schemes.
What would you use on a tender – SSIP, ISO 45001 or both?
Tenders can vary in terms of their requirements for demonstrable OH&S credentials. They may specifically ask for ISO 45001 accredited certification, SSIP or any number of the sector schemes. Accredited certification to ISO 45001 that includes SSIP, can demonstrate compliance with each.
