Suppliers of service-providing organizations do often get the questions if you are a VCA certified company. Many customers make this even as a precondition.
VCA stands for Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) checklist contractors and is intended to help you and your employees work safer and reduce the number of accidents. In fact, VCA is much more than a checklist. It is a versatile program that allows service providing companies are tested and certified for their VGM management. Many principals put the VCA-certificate as a mandatory item. In addition to the company-certificate, employees do also need to be in possession of a VCA-certificate, VCA-Basis or VCA-VOL (for operational managers).
VCA-certification is intended for companies which perfom risky activities in a risky environment. Often due to construction or maintenance activities which take place on (construction sites in sectors such as (petrochemical, power, steel, (domestic) shipping, off-shore as well as in general workshops and production halls.
VCA exists since 1994. The development of the VCA-certification system has been launched in 1989 by the National Working Group Contractor Safety. Representatives of petrochemical companies and contractors wanted to develop a system to assess objectively contractor organizations on their safety and performance. Meanwhile, the VCA is generally recognized as the industry standard.
The SCC system is administered by the independent Foundation Cooperation for Safety (SSVV). The Central Committee of Experts VCA is responsible for the management and further development of the VCA schedule. The VCA scheme is accredited by the Accreditation Council (RvA). The certification settings which are operated by the VCA audits are accredited by the Accreditation Council.
The VCA system (known as certification scheme) meets the requirements laid down in the European standards. As a result, international application and any mutual recognition is simplified between the European countries.
