What does the standard SCC cover?
The standard SCC defines the requirements for a certifiable occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system of an organisation. SCC (Safety Certificate Contractors) was developed for organisations planning to act as contractors, and includes safety, health and environmental protection requirements (abbreviated: SHE). These requirements include, but are not limited to:
- The organisation has established a suitable SHE management system, which includes mechanisms for organising SHE in the organisation, hazard assessment, on-site communication with customers and plant operators, self-assessment of SHE performance (in particular in the case of accidents, near misses and unsafe situations), prevention and correction of accidents and diseases and the continuous improvement of the organisation’s SHE performance.
- The organisation analyses and considers the SHE requirements of its customers and the requirements of the applicable codes and standards.
- The certified organisation defines the processes, roles and responsibilities required to ensure SHE and carries out regular surveillance to meet the specific requirements of the standard, legal requirements and requirements of the German Institutions for Statutory Accident Insurance and Prevention, customer- and industry-specific SHE requirements.
