What is SMAS?
SMAS is short for Safety Management Advisory Services.
They are a Health & Safety assessment organisation that offers a nationally recognised Health & Safety accreditation used to demonstrate your business' Health and Safety standards. They are a co-founding member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement or better known as SSIP.
All of the assessments are undertaken in-house which enable SMAS to offer a consistent standard across all assessments, the minimum standards SMAS assess against are set out in the SSIP Core Criteria..
How can this help you?
When your business is awarded the SMAS accreditation this can help improve your business’ professional image, helping you gain clients you may not have been able to gain before. This also brings a value to your business showing your current clients and your potential clients that you are taking your Health & Safety obligations seriously.
