Greenlight facilitate this assessment process on behalf of Clients & Principal Contractors free of charge.

Step 1 - We obtain all of the relevant information relating to your sub-contractors from your procurement department, and enable access for your representatives to our online portal system, a database of SSIP approved contractors.

Step 2 – We add the sub-contractor to the portal, upon which they are notified of the process with a comprehensive letter and the assessment questionnaire.

Step 3 - The sub-contractor then returns the completed assessment questionnaire with any required supporting documentation.

Step 4 – We carry out the assessment of their application against the industry standard. Upon approval, we update our portal, publically displaying them as approved as well as providing them with an approval certificate. If their first submission is not successful, they will be advised on the steps that need to be taken in order to achieve SSIP accreditation and assisted by one of our expert assessors.

Step 5 - We next contact them when their insurances are due for renewal to ensure we always have a copy of their valid insurance documents.

Step 6 - The sub-contractor is then contacted from us on the eleventh month of the certification, to encourage re-completion of the assessment process. This will therefore ensure that they remain approved and eligible to tender for forthcoming works.”

What is Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP)?
SSIP act as an umbrella organisation to facilitate mutual recognition between health and safety pre-qualification schemes. In turn this dramatically reduces the burden of re-assessments and the full cost of these processes. An organisation that has been approved by a founder or registered member of SSIP will be recognised and accepted by other members of SSIP should a client direct them to a particular assessment company.
