CERTIFICATION PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The CCS Certification Program is an evaluation of your safety program and safety statistics. It is more than just a safety pre-qualification tool. Contractors who go through the program are provided with a valuable professional evaluation of their safety program that they can use as a guide to enhance their safety efforts.
To learn what information you will need for the application, please read:

- CCS Substance Abuse Policy Checklist
- SPRS Instructions
Please note that you do not have to be a CCS Association Member (annual dues of $800 are paid each June) to apply for the CCS Certification Program. CCS Association Members do receive a discount off the application and annual renewal fees.
CCS Certification Program Changes Coming in January 2017
CCS will be updating some of the criteria in the Safety Program Review (SPRS) to meet new OSHA guidelines. CCS will also be requiring additional documentation in 2017 such as certificates of insurance and redacted loss runs. All companies will need to meet the new requirements at the time of their annual renewal which coincides with their workers' compensation renewal date.
Details about the new criteria and additional documentation will be sent out via email to all companies in the CCS Certification Program in the coming weeks. Please be on the lookout for this important information.
