Hessle achieves Chas Accreditation

March 4, 2015

As pert of our onging commitment to health and saftety , we are pleased to announce that we have now acheived Chas accreditation . Chas is the Governments Contractors Health and Safety Assessment scheme which is dedicated to ensuring the standards of health and safety are maintained to a high level.

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 suppliers 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:

  1. Health and safety policy statement;
  2. Their organisation for health and safety;
  3. Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
