Safety Checklist for Contractors (SCC) covers the evaluation and certification of safety management systems for subcontractors.
Principals often require that contractors working for them have a valid SCC certificate, particularly in the petrochemical industry. It proves that a subcontractor's internal processes have been measured against best practices in safety management of hazardous work and found compliant with the recognised standard.
Certification shows that, as a subcontractor, you deliver to the standards that your customers require and that they need not have concerns about your commitment to and deployment of safety systems. It clearly demonstrates specific valued aspects of your business including:
- Skilled employees
- Professional safety management procedures and systems
- A strong commitment towards safety
- Verified competencies
