A large number of sub-contractors work in industries with significant challenges to their health. Safety, health and environmental factors are key concerns for organisations worldwide, particularly for employees employed in high risk jobs. Procedures and guidelines on safety should be in place to minimise the potential risks to avoid financial and operational loss.
SCC, otherwise known as Safety Certificate for Contractors, is a standard that applies to the audit and certification of safety management systems. Originally intended to allow organisations to operate with greater safety awareness and reduce the number of accidents, SCC is gradually regarded as a mandatory requirement for companies, especially for businesses conducting its activities on their clients’ premises. It shares similarities to other management systems such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 as well as ISO 45001 and OHSAS 18001.
The adoption of the SCC management allows the company to commit to a long-term goal of a continued improvement in implementation of the organisation’s health and safety policy. Unlike other management systems like OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9001, SCC provides reliable control of SHE, which is important especially in cases where organisations conduct their activities within their clients’ location. To achieve the goal, the decision-makers of the company will have many considerations, including the strategy and direction the company will take, the best way to build a decision-making process, and measures to identify and minimise varying levels of risks that are detrimental to the employees’ well-being.
