chas accreditation support
We provide a low cost and effective service to help you gain contractor health and safety accreditation speediily and effectively
Each month thousands of contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the bu
yers health and safety standards.
Assessing suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyers Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
CHAS assesses applicants’:
Health and safety policy statement;
Organisation for health and safety;
Specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to buyers and to others.
Participating in the CHAS scheme helps both suppliers and buyers:
Suppliers show compliance with important parts of health and safety law (the core criteria described in the CDM regulations). On achieving compliance a supplier is approved to work for all of CHAS’ buyers.(Some Buyers may require “Accredited” Status)
Inconsistencies are reduced where some suppliers may be judged compliant by one buyer but not another.
CHAS gives guidance on any weaknesses in a supplier’s safety management, including how they can improve.
Being a CHAS supplier or buyer saves both time and resources
CHAS registration is important both for suppliers and procurers/employers alike. The CHAS Assessors will look for a structured and comprehensive approach to health and safety management and Robust Safety Solutions will support and assist you with your application, including when your assessment has been returned by CHAS as lacking sufficient detail or missing vital safety management information.
