Marpal’s experienced Construction Health and Safety Consultants are at hand to offer you the help and assistance you need!
Acceptance on to a Health & Safety accreditation scheme requires you to demonstrate that your business meets the requirements and standards of a set criteria. This can be quite challenging for those who are unfamiliar with these schemes.
When looking to become accredited, the important thing to bear in mind is that the information you submit will be assessed by the Accreditation Scheme Assessor – therefore, it is important to ensure that the information provided is relevant and comprehendible. If it is incomplete, disjointed or lacks any clarity, this will simply be returned to you asking for clarification and the whole process could become very time-consuming.
What assistance will I need to get on to a third-party Accreditation Scheme?
In order to be successful, you will need help and assistance from your Health & Safety Competent Person. Large companies will have inhouse Health & Safety Advisors, whereas small to medium-sized companies may need some support from an external Health & Safety provider, such as Marpal.
No matter who is assigned to assist with your application (whether internally or externally), you must ensure that your Health & Safety Competent Person(s) has a sound knowledge of your organisation and construction Health & Safety. The whole process will involve liaising with an Accreditation Scheme Adviser to ensure you meet the standards required. This process can be time-consuming and may also involve the development of new policies, procedures, and Health & Safety arrangements.
