Builder profile and SMAS has announced that their subcontractor, supplier, consultant and main contractor members of their new working partnership. According to the Builder’s Profile website, From October 2016 all valid SMAS – Worksafe certificate entries added to Profiles will be automatically verified by SMAS.
Danny Marinou SMAS Business Development Manager says, “We are proud to be providing Builders Profile with real-time information on the assessments we approve. Builder’s profile members can now ‘verify’ the validity of the SMAS certificates which they record on their Profile. This provides their clients with confidence that they have been assessed and achieved industry recognised accreditation for their H&S Management Systems.”
These both organisations have worked together and created the verification function; according to the Builder’s Profile website this will reduce the burden of compliance duplication and one which helps in the defence of risk;
- An SSIP accreditation shows its members maintain a documented Health & Safety Management system and reduces the Builder’s Profile PQQ process.
- Achieving the SMAS Worksafe Accreditation demonstrate to the wider market that you have safe systems of work.
- A valid SMAS Worksafe Accreditation is automatically verified for main contactors.
- Submitting a premium Builder’s profile publishes the completed PQQ to affiliated main contractors AND can be published to ANY company in a member’s commercial network.
Julie McGrady, Business Relationship Manager at Builder’s Profile says, “Our new working partnership is a small step towards a very important purpose; making the prequalification process much more efficient and accurate.”
