With residential development a competitive market and there being increasing pressure for sustainable, responsible companies to deliver works, especially for local authorities, we were asked to support one local company in securing CHAS.
We explained the CHAS process to them and outlined the requirements. The client was extremely busy delivering projects and asked if we would help walk them through the process to ensure they did everything correctly and it was completed in a timely manner.
We provided them with a demonstration of how our ComplianceManaged® portal could help them get everything ready and in place prior to CHAS submission. We also explained how it provided reminders and alerts throughout the year, helping to keep compliance documentation up to date.
The Company Director and Health & Safety Manager were extremely impressed as it was evident to them how our ComplianceManaged® portal would benefit their business and save them time. When we started to gather their documents together, the system flagged up gaps where we needed to do some work before we could start to populate the CHAS portal.
We helped them get their policies up to date and created any that they were missing. Soon after they were awarded CHAS accreditation.
Having them onboard on our system means they will be more prepared next year, helping them stay on top of their compliance documentation going forward.
CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) is a pre-approval scheme, which allows contractors to demonstrate to potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards.
