New competency scheme for pre-qualification assessors
The verification of health and safety arrangements in construction looks set to become more robust with the launch of a new competence scheme for assessors.
Individuals who carry out Stage 1 Core Criteria (pre-qualification) assessments for constructors who are members of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) forum can now apply for certification by the International Register of Certified Auditors. The IRCA scheme is being actively encouraged by the HSE and SSIP members, with successful completion of the IRCA-approved SSIP assessor-training course being mandatory for all assessors working under the SSIP scheme.
