The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is the UK’s Leading Provider of Risk Prevention, Compliance and Supply Chain Management Services for clients and contractors. It was created in 1997 to improve health & safety standards and protect organisations from risk across the UK. As an authority and trusted advisor on health and safety compliance, this scheme is responsible for setting the industry standard and benchmarks and providing the new Common Assessment Standards.
Our team of highly skilled installation, maintenance and administration support staff are accredited by CHAS. This pre-approval scheme provides an independent annual assessment of health and safety (H & S) policies and practices confirming our workforce meet these nationally recognised standards. The assessments issued by CHAS include H & S policy and guidelines, manual handling, work equipment, working at a height, accident reporting, risk assessment and training and qualifications.
Many different products and packages within the accreditation are designed to meet all construction pre-qualification requirements; one of which ACS is now proudly accredited by, the CHAS Premium Plus. This level is awarded to companies who have "demonstrated compliance with and sound management of current health and safety legislation, additionally to those who have demonstrated full compliance with 6 modules of PAS 91."
The yearly assessment reaffirms our commitment and compliance with the scheme and full accreditation has been awarded for another year. If you wish to know further details of the Premium Plus assessment please head over to our CHAS news -related article.
