Safety to cost less as Builder's Profile partners with SMAS
Builder's Profile announces strategic partnership with H&S assessors SMAS to deliver major efficiencies in UK construction industry compliance & pre-qualification.
By: Builder's Profile and SMAS
This joint solution brings the two respected 'platforms' together - resulting in a seamless solution. Members can use their Builder's Profile to directly apply for a SMAS Worksafe Certificate - a fast, efficient and cost effective route to achieving an SSiP H&S Accreditation.
The platforms communicate constantly, confirming that member H&S information is up to date and available to Main Contractor clients. This simple innovative solution means H&S obligations and pre-qualification information can all be easily maintained and viewed in one place. Business benefits include the obvious savings in time and money along with greater certainty and clarity over subcontractors' H&S standards. Main Contractors can quickly and confidently select from an even greater 'pool' of SSiP H&S Accredited subcontractors.
Danny Marinou from SMAS says, "Save time, money and complexity in demonstrating your company's H&S management system, whilst ensuring that the information you present to Clients is up to date and accurate. This is excellent progress for the industry!"
"Collaboration and data sharing are absolutely key to the removal of the dreaded PQQ duplication nightmare." says Paul Long, Builder's Profile MD, "And this 'unique' partnership is a perfect example of joined-up thinking using technology to simplify rather than complicate."
