Facility Owners Benefit by Using Certified Contractors…
Facility Owners can use certified contractors by making certification a prerequisite for bidding. Using PCCP contractors helps facility owners to:
The Painting Contractor Certification Program (PCCP)
For certification to SSPC QP-1 industrial painting contractors must demonstrate competence in Management Procedures, Technical Capabilities, Quality Control, and Safety and Environmental Compliance.
For certification to SSPC QP-2, contractors must demonstrate competence in four additional areas: Management of Hazardous Paint Removal Projects, Technical Capabilities Related to Hazardous Paint Removal, Personnel Qualifications and Training, and Environmental Compliance Programs.
For certification to SSPC-QS1, requires participating contractors to implement and document more stringent (ISO 9001 Compliant) quality control and record-keeping procedures than those included SSPC-QP 1, SSPC-QP 3, etc. However, unlike ISO 9001 certification, QS-1 provides the facility owner with the dual benefit of a coatings-industry specific QMS model for contractors who have the operational capability required by QP 1 plus the ISO 9001 compliant QMS detailed in QS 1.
What is the prime benefit of hiring an SSPC Certified Contractor?
Simply put, you are hiring an experienced contractor or shop that has demonstrated competence in key project areas. This increases the likelihood that your maintenance investment is sound – that the protective coatings work intended to protect your assets is completed within specification, and will achieve its expected service life without premature failure. Odds are increased that work will be done without safety and environmental compliance violations that may tarnish your company’s image or put your company and clients at increased risk.
