We are delighted to announce that we have recently achieved SSIP accreditation (from the leading registered member scheme SMAS Worksafe) and are proud to be operating as a fully SSIP-certified scaffolder in Cornwall!
SSIP stands for ‘Safety Schemes in Procurement’, and it means that we have an appropriate health and safety management system that meets the SSIP core criteria in line with health & safety legislation. SSIP is an industry-standard of health and safety that big contractors ask their subcontractors to obtain before they’re able to work on their sites. This ensures that the businesses they hire are following all the correct health & safety procedures and can give them peace of mind that the work being done on their sites is safe.
An SSIP-Certified Scaffolding Company
Obtaining an SSIP certificate shows our impeccable standards when it comes to health and safety. The importance of scaffolding safety can never be underestimated which is why here at 7 Bays Scaffolding we do everything within our power to ensure that the scaffolding we erect adheres to all health and safety regulations, is soundly built and as safe as can be. We are a H&S Assessment organisation that takes great pride in our professionalism, customer service and efficiency. We offer scaffold inspection services – and Independent Statutory Scaffold inspection and site scaffolding monitoring services are available in accordance with the Work at Height Regulations 2005. Regulation 12 and Schedule 7. The time and effort we put into training our scaffolders and developing health and safety guidelines is shown in our impeccable safety record.
Returning to Normality
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a deeply troubling time for all industries, and the construction industry has been no different. Achieving the SSIP certification will hopefully also give contractors peace of mind that we are able to work safely now that building sites have reopened. New safety measures are now being drawn up by construction firms across the country, with industry bodies and now the government publishing safety guidelines. Here in Cornwall we will be operating as safely as possible with social distancing and risk mitigation at the top of our priority list.
