CDM Competent Scheme
The Eurosafe UK CDM Competent Scheme is a health and safety assessment exercise based on the requirements of the CDM Regulations 2015 and other workplace related legislation.
Eurosafe UK assist buyers (organisations who appoint contractors and designers) in discharging their duties relating to assessing the organisational capability of suppliers they appoint to undertake work on their behalf. Under the CDM Regulations 2015 there is a requirement for anybody who is employing or engaging a supplier to carry out construction work to take reasonable steps to ensure they have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to fulfil the role, or if they are an organisation, the organisational capability.
We are proud to be an accredited member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement Forum (www.ssip.org.uk). The SSIP Forum was established in 2007 to enable mutual recognition between various their party health and safety assessment schemes. In short this means that if a supplier of services has been successfully assessed by a member of the SSIP Forum then that assessment may be mutually recognised by other members of the Forum. The SSIP Forum has resulted in a reduction in the costs and resources spent by organisations completing different health and safety questionnaires relating to pre-qualification exercises.
SSIP is specifically highlighted as a key route to health and safety prequalification in the 2013 edition of the government backed construction pre-qualification document PAS 91 and in the new HSE guidance to CDM 2015.
By successfully meeting the stringent criteria needed to become a member of the SSIP Forum our clients are secure in the knowledge that Eurosafe UK are competent to assist them with discharging their legal duties relating to appointing only competent duty holders.
