SMAS Accreditation

SMAS (short for Safety Management Advisory Services) is a nationally recognised Health & Safety accreditation used to demonstrate your business’ Health & Safety standards, giving main contractors confidence when it comes to your competence.

By achieving SMAS accreditation, you can easily establish that you’re a safe business to team up with, which gives you a real competitive edge when it comes to submitting tenders and/or pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) – and saves you time in doing so, too.
