The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is the recognised Government backed health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is available for suitably competent suppliers.The aim of the scheme is to save time and resources by avoiding unnecessary duplication in the first stage of competence assessment and it is used by the Public Sector such as Local Authorities, NHS, Emergency Services, Government Departments and also by many Construction companies in the Private Sector.
Leigh Hounsome, Managing Director at A&E Cleaning Solutions wanted to tender for some works with a large Housing Association but was unable to do so without CHAS Accreditation, so Leigh approached Charter Health & Safety Solutions Southampton Office for assistance.
Leigh said “Charter managed the whole process of gaining CHAS Accreditation leaving me to get on with running the business, the costs were very reasonable and were nothing compared to the value of the works we have now won with the Housing Association”.
Having CHAS Accreditation has also enabled A&E to tender for works with Southampton University, Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and Dorset County Council.
If your company, large or small, requires CHAS Accreditation to satisfy a client or tender requirement, or you want to save time and money by not having to complete the health and safety section of pre-qualification questionnaires of SSIP members then please contact our Southampton office on 02380 864683 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a competitive quote. We also have offices located in London and Salisbury.
In addition to CHAS, Charter Health and Safety Solutions can also provide guidance on and assist with gaining Exor, ContractorPlus and Safecontractor Accreditation.
