Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme

Participating in the CHAS scheme helps both suppliers and buyers.

  • Suppliers show compliance with important parts of health and safety law (the core criteria described in the CDM regulations).
  • On achieving compliance a supplier is approved to work for all of CHAS’ buyers.(Some Buyers may require “Accredited” Status)
  • Inconsistencies are reduced where some suppliers may be judged compliant by one buyer but not another.
  • CHAS gives guidance on any weaknesses in a supplier’s safety management, including how they can improve.
  • Being a CHAS supplier or buyer saves both time and resources

Investors in People (Gold)

Internationally recognised and admired, the Investors in People (IIP) accreditation is the most successful framework for business improvement through people in the UK.

In October 2010 (having held the basic standard since 2007) we achieved IIP Gold Status – an achievement only 1% of nationally IIP-accredited organisations attain.

It is our belief that IIP Gold Status helps to improve our competitive edge, reputation and performance whilst attracting and retaining the best staff.
