Achieving accreditation for the fifth year, we illustrated our dedication to all aspects of health, safety and welfare management.

CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK.

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
  • 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
