    Yeah going through the application process myself now and it's a bit of a nightmare if like me you don't have all the relevant RA'S and MS' etc too hand.

    Correct I just finished mine and sent it off this evening. Do you think you'll get more work from it?

    I'm having to do this because of a contract I've taken on, been accredited before and didn't get any more work from it though. I think it's an expensive waste of my precious time to be honest mate.

    I was thinking about becoming a member it's only good for showing people you are health and safety compliant it can win you work but for some people it won't.

    I have safe contractor as I do a lot of commercial having it can never be a bad thing.
    It can give you an upper hand when competing for work but their are still a lot of businesses that don't know about it.I don't think you will get job's just by having it.
