What is CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) Accreditation?
You have probably seen other contractors with CHAS stickers on their vehicles and wondered what that represents. CHAS, or the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme, is one of the most recognised SSIP schemes and allows your business to demonstrate compliance and commitment to Risk Management and Health and Safety Standards within the construction industry.
The purpose of the CHAS Accreditation Scheme is to act as a prequalification accreditation which will simplify the tender or prequalification process that you may find yourself having to complete when bidding for work.
By gaining CHAS accreditation you will demonstrate that you have common standards in accordance with the competence assessment requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. This allows clients to have an assurance that all CHAS Accredited Contractors have been assessed to a minimum Risk Management and common Health and Safety Standard.
What are the benefits of CHAS Accreditation?
If there is any question in your mind as to whether CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) accreditation would benefit your business, then here are just some of its advantages.
- For many businesses, CHAS accreditation is now considered a prerequisite before a contractor is allowed on to a tender list.
