The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) is a trade body representing the very best contractors and suppliers of goods and services to the UK’s thriving events industry
ESSA has over 200 members, including GH Display Ltd, specialising in supplying services and goods to the event industry where each member has been through rigorous vetting and pre-approval to achieve membership and help drive industry excellence. ESSA Accredited is an annual company-level qualification, that is independently audited and provides demonstrable proof that the member company is operating at the required level to meet stage one requirements of assessing competence under CDM 2015. It aligns with the requirements of ISO 20121 Sustainable Event Management and other management system standards whilst adopting the principles of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) member schemes such as CHAS, Safemark and Greenlight.
The ESSA Accreditation has been presented to both organisers and venues, and it has received a very warm welcome as it provides peace of mind for both due to its rigorous evaluation of health and safety processes within the ESSA member company. They recognise that the system will mitigate their liability and make ESSA Accredited companies more attractive.
