- A set of standard blank template documents containing everything you’ll need to produce when applying to an SSIP scheme

What are SSIP schemes?

Who owns the documentation produced?
You do. You paid for it, so its yours. We neither copyright our forms, nor lock everything down in PDFs. We will happily provide original documents in word/excel on request.
Are there any hidden costs?
If you do not have a H&S policy, RAMS, or other H&S documentation, we recommend looking at our retained service ‘Hassle Free’, where we offer a more robust H&S product to small businesses that require additional and ongoing support in meeting the requirements relevant H&S legislation and their chosen SSIP scheme.
We also offer, at additional cost, various types of training commonly required by SSIP schemes that are relevant to your core works, for example:
- Manual handling
- Face fit testing
- Asbestos awareness
