Constructionline is the UK's largest register for pre-qualified contractors and consultants. Primarily aimed at the construction sector, this accreditation provides customers with reassurance by thoroughly checking all the important pre-qualification data covering; company details, financials, health & safety, equalities and environmental information.
Constructionline and Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP)
The construction and associated industries have some of the highest risks in the UK, accounting for 22% of fatal injuries for workers, despite only employing 5% of the British work force.
The installation of security systems is not generally regarded as being a part of the construction industry. However we recognise that when it comes to new building projects, main prime contractors regard health and safety competency as one of their top priorities when it comes to buying services.
With so many different health & safety schemes, it is difficult for suppliers to know which scheme to choose, In addition, some buyers mandate a particular scheme meaning that companies such as AlertSystems have to undergo multiple assessments to be considered for a wide variety of projects.
The Constructionline/SSIP solution
Since its launch in 2009, has increasingly been able to cut pre-qualification bureaucracy in the supply chain - acting as an umbrella organisation to facilitate mutual recognition between health & safety schemes wherever it is practicable to do so.
Constructionline recognises all 46 SSIP member schemes as proof of a supplier’s health & safety competency to Stage 1 of the Construction (Design and Management) 2015 Regulations. Therefore, as a Constructionline buyer, you can be assured that AlertSystems has been assessed and accredited by an SSIP member scheme, having met the required levels of competency to provide our industry specific services.
