SSIP Health & Safety Assessment

The simplest, fastest, most affordable health and safety approval with an SSIP registered member scheme.

SSIP Registered Member

The simplest, fastest, most affordable Health & Safety approval with an SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) Registered Member Scheme. The assessment is a desktop exercise, undertaken via our secure online portal by qualified assessors. Documents and templates are available in there for use within your business.

PQS supports the ethos of the SSIP forum and is committed to reducing duplication. If you have a valid SSIP or ISO45001 certificate from a UKAS accredited certification body, you can supply this instead via the deem to satisfy route. The route to gaining SSIP Membership recognition by becoming PQS Health & Safety approved has never been simpler.
