DHF launches Smas Worksafe as a new member benefit


The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) has announced the launch of a new member benefit Smas Worksafe.

Established in 2006, Smas is a provider of health and safety assessments and offers full form Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) services. It has experience in assisting businesses to efficiently manage their health and safety obligations through tailored packages and training, and developing the correct documentation to enable businesses to secure industry-recognised accreditations to meet regulatory requirements.

In addition, Smas offers Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) services aligned with the PAS91 framework. This addition is aimed at streamlining the pre-qualification process for construction-related procurements, making it easier for businesses to meet industry standards and win tenders.

Every Smas assessor, for example, undergoes SSIP Assessor Training, followed by an audit conducted by an independently appointed SSIP Auditor.

Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, DHF’s commercial director, said: “Gaining Smas SSIP accreditation not only proves your commitment to health and safety but also opens doors to connect with these clients through the Smas portal. This accreditation is a signal to potential clients of your serious approach to H&S management, going beyond legal obligations to nationally recognised standards.

“As well as receiving 15% discount on training course from iHasco, a 10% discount at Trade Point and savings with Fuel Card Services, members will also be able to gain access to a free Work Wallet account. This new partnership represents a shared commitment to advancing safety standards within the industry and will bring exclusive benefits to DHF members who will receive preferential rates with Smas Worksafe.”

Ricky Couling, head of commercial at Smas Worksafe, added: “We are delighted to join forces with DHF, a dynamic federation committed to excellence. Together, we will continue to raise the bar for safety and standards in the industry, providing our members with unparalleled industry insights and a gateway to a network that values quality and innovation.”
