The combined expertise of the company’s engineers now totals in excess of 100 years and we continue to grow our expertise through challenging new projects.

We are able to design bespoke systems to meet the needs of new and novel processes and situations, as illustrated by this case study of Low temperature design & application.

CHAS

Principles and Purpose of “The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme”

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 buyer’s health and safety standards.

Assessing supplier’s health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s 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;
  • Their organisation for health and safety;
  • Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
