SCC stands for Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Checklist Contractors. An SCC diploma or certificate will help you lay the foundation for a safe and healthy start to every working day.
A Safety for Operational Supervisors SCC diploma (SOS-SCC) shows that you have a basic knowledge of safety, health and the environment and that you can apply this knowledge in the interests of yourself and those you manage.
What and for whom
An SOS-SCC diploma shows that you have basic knowledge of safety, health and the environment and that you can apply this knowledge. In this way, you increase both your own safety and that of the people you manage. You are familiar with laws and regulations, can recognise dangerous situations and actions and know how to prevent them. You are also a fully-fledged point of contact for clients, management and employees. In short: with SOS-SCC you show that you know what is expected of you.
SOS-SCC deals with the same subjects as B-SCC, but from the point of view of the operational manager. Compared to B-SCC, SOS-SCC requires more knowledge in certain areas. This knowledge is also more application-oriented. Not only do you need to know what safe behaviour is, but you also need to know how to encourage it. And you need to know not only when to use personal protective equipment, but also which equipment to use and how to use it.
SOS-SCC is intended for operational managers and freelancers who work as subcontractors for an SCC-certified company. This includes both permanent and temporary employees.
Are you a freelancer who hires yourself out as a temporary employee (with a best-efforts obligation)? Then you do not necessarily need SOS-SCC: in principle, B-SCC is sufficient. Are you an intermediary or manager at a temporary employment agency? Then you should have SIS-SCT rather than SOS-SCC.
