Contractors (external companies) are often not familiar with a client’s work processes and safety requirements. Constant changes of location also increase the risk of accidents, breakdowns and damage to property. Safety Contractor Certification (SCC) offers contractors a way to meet increasing SHE requirements.

Personnel service providers who lend their employees to companies (contractors) who use SCC, require an SCP certificate. This applies to companies (contractors) that are active in the chemical, petroleum industry, refinery and power plant sectors, but also to construction, maintenance and disposal companies.

Thanks to SCC certification or SCP certification, you can demonstrate that you meet the required security standard in these industries.

Certification is divided into two scopes.
