New SSIP newsletter published

John KingeJohn Kinge, Chairman of SSIP and Technical Advisor at Safecontractor has written the introduction to this month's newsletter.

John writes: " As chair of SSIP, I am continually encouraged to see that, through effective collaboration, fewer organisations have to repeat the time and cost of demonstrating compliance with what the industry has defined as ‘core’ health and safety PQQ requirements. Incorporation of these ‘core’ criteria into SSIP's Terms of Reference is already making a major contribution to ensuring PQQ consistency in construction, and beyond. I believe that with heightened awareness of PAS 91, combined with the growth of SSIP, procurement of construction services will become even more transparent and less bureaucratic.

The new-look CDM Regulations will once again put the spotlight on how buyers can best assess the capability of their suppliers, whether they are principal designers, contractors, or consultants. I am also greatly encouraged by the continuing support shown by the HSE for SSIP, and the references in the new guidance to the CDM 2015 Regulations to how SSIP can be used to help buyers and suppliers."
