Effective consideration of safety hazards
When manpower agencies lease personnel to other organisations, there are special risks involved. Since leased personnel frequently change their place of work, they are not fully familiar with conditions on site so there is increased risk of accidents, downtimes, and damage to property. In order to prevent this, TÜV NORD CERT offers personnel leasing companies certification according to the SCP rules (Safety Certificate Personnel Leasing) which are in turn based on the SCC rules (Safety Certificate Contractors).
Better chance of winning contracts
In many industries at both the national and international level, the SCP certificate is an absolute requirement when bidding for contracts. The certification shows that the staff of the personnel leasing organisation are chosen with reliability and safety considerations in mind and are appropriately qualified. This also provides security for clients – and therefore SCP certified companies are preferred partners. And the audit also provides benefits in terms of legal compliance, optimised management processes and a more efficient workflow.
For successful certification, the responses to the questions in the SCP checklist must be positive and all staff and executives must undergo standardised training. In addition, interviews are conducted with the personnel leased to clients of the applicant organisation.
SCP certification can be obtained individually, and also in combination with other certifications such as DIN EN ISO 9001 (quality management) and DIN EN ISO 14001 (environmental management). We will be happy to provide more information.
