Safety Schemes in Procurement


Gaining an SSIP certificate from an accredited agency is one of the simplest ways for businesses to demonstrate health and safety compliance. Whether it’s through SMAS, CHAS or Constructionline, Twig can evidence to buyers and clients alike that we are committed to safe working practices, have robust health & safety policies and procedures in place, and that we know how to mitigate against risk and manage it effectively.


SSIP certification is acknowledged by thousands of organisations as an industry standard accreditation which, following rigorous auditing and assessment, evidences that contractors are meeting and sustaining regulatory requirements. Twig is proud to hold three accreditations, having been assessed and validated by the top UK SSIP provision in the field:


  • SMAS – demonstrates we are committed to best practice in our health and safety obligations, having been audited by an independently appointed SSIP assessor.
  • CHAS – evidences our supply-chain risk management compliance and mitigation strategies, recognised as a key indicator of conformity throughout the tender pre-qualification process.
  • Constructionline Silver – identifies us as an authentic PAS91 validated member on their register of pre-qualified contractors and consultants, the construction industry’s supply-chain bible.


Annual assessments ensure Twig remains consistently compliant and can demonstrate best practice in health & safety and beyond and that we remain committed to ensuring the health, safety and well-being of our teams in the field, our clients and our subcontractors, ensuring projects are delivered with minimal risk to all involved.
