What is The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme? (CHAS)
The CHAS health and safety assessment scheme is a pre-approval scheme to allow contractors to show potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards. The main purpose of CHAS is to avoid repeated applications by suppliers and contractors to become approved as a supplier and to improve health and safety in small to medium sized businesses. Whilst the CHAS assessment scheme is a local authority and government backed scheme, it can be used by any organisation looking to short list suppliers and contractors and can save time and money for all parties.

We have been dealing with CHAS and their assessors for a very long time and we have found that every assessor has their own individual stance of received documentation. SR Safety Solutions will ensure you achieve your accreditation by working with you and ensuring your assessment goes as smoothly as possible.
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.
