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.
As an approved supplier, we are able to self-certify our own work should your project need to pass building regulations. We also work with and can recommend electricians who can self-certify, saving you from part of the work in getting building regulations approval.
