Constructionline Gold Member & Acclaim Accrediation Health & Safety
At RW Joinery, we’re fully committed to excellence in our industry.
That’s why we’re delighted to announce the receipt of two important new accreditations, cementing our position as an industry leader.
We have now moved from silver to gold accreditation with Constructionline, which is the UK’s most progressive and connected provider of supply chain and procurement management services.
More than 10,000 buyers from nearly 4,000 private and public sector organisations make use of Constructionline as a source of consultants and contractors. They all understand that verified members fully align with government and industry standards.
This accreditation shows buyers we have undergone enhanced scrutiny around the areas of risk management and governance.
Gold is the organisation’s third level of accreditation under changes brought in during autumn 2017 – and its rigorous, tailored assessment in the form of a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire covers quality and environmental management, diversity and equality.
It guarantees compliance in areas from modern slavery to equal opportunities, and anti-bribery to corruption measures, and goes beyond questions asked at the second or silver level, which we had already passed previously.
At the same time, we’re proud to have been assessed for, and subsequently awarded, an Acclaim (or ‘Deemed to Satisfy’) Safety Scheme in Procurement (SSIP) certificate, which means we can show buyers and our clients, which include construction firms, developers and architects, we comply fully with all relevant Health and Safety laws.
Acclaim Accreditation is the SSIP member scheme which Supplier Assessment Services Ltd provides. It draws on the knowledge and expertise of Capita Property and Infrastructure, a leader in health and safety consultancy, as each application is assessed.
SSIP is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and accepted universally in private and public sector procurement.
Acclaim Accreditation is an award-winning formula, drawing on nearly three decades of excellence in the health and safety arena.
We know that for us, and our buyers, there are many benefits to Constructionline membership and health and safety compliance via a SSIP scheme. Equally, accreditation offers clear evidence of professional standards – and we’ll now be working towards platinum level.
