CHAS stands for the Contractors Health and Safety
Assessment Scheme. CHAS is a health and safety accreditation scheme used in the construction industry and often acts as a type of pre-qualification during the tender process.
Some buyers require CHAS to be gained before they will allow you to tender. This is seen more often in cases of public procurement such, as for councils, schools and other public sector bodies.
The purpose of CHAS is to help both buyers and suppliers in the assessment of health and safety competence.
It helps buyers by reducing the lengthy process of assessing contractors' health and safety standards individually.
It helps suppliers (contractors) by reducing the time consuming process of completing and submitting all details of health and safety processes on each project that they compete for. Give us a call today for more information about our services.
