Working for an SIA Approved Contractor
WHAT IS THE APPROVED CONTRACTOR SCHEME?
As a quality assurance scheme, the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) is concerned with service delivery to the end customer. It provides a framework for setting, improving and monitoring the standards of management and of service delivery – from licensable operatives deployed on site through to the executives in the boardroom.
Only approved contractors can display the SIA Approved Contractor mark which is protected by Law.
AS AN SIA APPROVED CONTRACTER YOUR EMPLOYER SHOULD:
- Get your opinions on the organisation and act upon them.
- Ensure you have the proper training, induction and supervision that you need.
- Hold an annual appraisal with you which is fair, two-way and more than just a tick-list.
- Encourage you to use your full annual leave entitlement.
- Encourage you to explore your pension provision.
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN TO YOU?
As you work for an SIA approved contractor your organisation will be assessed by an independent assessing body every 12 months. You may be asked by your organisation to take part in an assessment and you may be asked to speak to a professional assessor either on your normal site, over the telephone or at your company premises. This is your opportunity to tell the assessor what you think of the organisation you work for and to suggest ways in which you think it could improve. During the confidential interview the assessor will ask for:
- Your views on the company
- Your access to the training, information and equipment
- Your health and welfare arrangements
- Your understanding of company policies and strategies
The assessor is not trying to catch anyone out, but is simply trying to gain an overall picture of how your organisation works in practice. During the interview the assessor may take notes but these are never shared with your employer. If you have constructive views, we would encourage you to share them.
