Meet industry standards and requirements with CHAS

The Contractor Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and SAFE Contractor are industry standards that help to demonstrate that organisations carrying out construction related work are meeting basic safety requirements under current legislation.


What are CHAS and SAFE Contractor?

CHAS and SAFE Contractor are examples of a number of accreditations recognised by Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) which is an initiative introduced by the HSE aimed at avoiding the bureaucratic burden of repetitive competency assessment procedures adopted in the construction industry.

Accreditation to CHAS, SAFE Contractor or other schemes recognised by SSIP are often a pre-requisite to being awarded contracts for many clients. While some clients will still adopt lengthy pre-qualification procedures, the purpose of schemes recognised under SSIP is to demonstrate that the accredited company has been externally verified for basic safety compliance to avoid repeating the process on every tender.

A dedicated Risk Safety Consultant will liaise and meet with you to discuss your existing systems and then to work with you on the application process for accreditation.
