The process

It's quick and easy to achieve your ISO certification and start winning new business.

  • Preparation

    Your first step is to purchase a copy of ISO 45001. Your dedicated Auditor will be in touch to help you get everything in place so that you're ready for your first assessment.

  • Stage 1 assessment

    There’s no pressure for the first assessment; many are surprised what they already have in place following this visit. The report issued will highlight the next steps you need to take to achieve your certification.

  • Stage 2 assessment

    When you’re ready, your Auditor will visit again for your second assessment. You’ll be told the result on the day, and your certification will be issued shortly.

  • Annual assessment

    The excellent reputation of ISO 45001 is driven by its requirement for ongoing improvement, so we'll keep in touch and arrange annual assessments to keep your certification up-to-date.

More about SSIP

Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) was set up to mutually recognise a number of recognised health and safety schemes in order to make it easier to apply for contracts. With over 40 years in the industry, we offer a SSIP scheme in the form of the popular OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001 certifications that are widely recognised across the industry.

Why is SSIP so popular?

SSIP is a tried and tested approach to demonstrating health and safety credentials, which helps organisations impress existing clients, win new business, and reduce public liability premiums.

How long does SSIP certification take?

The amount of time it takes to achieve certification depends on factors such as the size and core services of your organisation, as well as the resources available to you. However, we will do everything we can to help you achieve your certification as quickly and efficiently as possible.

How much does SSIP cost?

The size and locations of your organisation will determine the exact cost, but we will always quote you a guaranteed Fixed Fee. We also accept 3 interest-free payments to help with smoothing your budget.
