An extremely helpful and personable assessor made our application far more
straightforward than I first thought it would be. The important improvements and
changes to our systems that were implemented throughout the application process have
given us confidence in our H&S structure and most certainly CHAS is now an important
asset recognised by our customers. CHAS membership gives you a powerful tool when
competing for new business and
especially with new customers and also saves time on completing H&S forms
St George Facilities Ltd
The whole process was relatively straightforward and the assessor was very helpful. Already it has saved our
company time in the completion of H&S questionnaires from clients.

I found the whole process very straightforward, easy to understand and quick.

Philip John Kurn,
P J Kurn Builders, 2012
The whole process prior to starting the application seemed very daunting and we imagined being overrun with paperwork. However, our assessor was very helpful and
constructive with his guidance. He made the entire process straight forward & showed a level
of patience that can only be termed as an asset. If anyone is in two minds as to whether to
apply or not, the process is straight forward and manageable. If you have any problems your
assessor is there to help. I highly commend the entire team for their level of competence
David Brough, Sunshade Services Ltd, 2012
A surprisingly and refreshingly smooth audit process throughout after all the quite scarey
had heard from agencies etc to gain compliance through their organizations.
Very impressed with all aspects of CHAS. Many thanks to you and the assessor that dealt with our application to a very professional level.
James O'Shea, Director, Predator Environmental Limited
If the 'trade' had the awareness to understand how user friendly the system of becoming accredited is many more would apply.
On applying for registration we considered it may be another scheme,
whilst needing to pre qualify would not be of use and another cost burden.
However we have been proved wrong and our systems have been improved which benefits all
and we are proud to display the Chas logo.
M J Quickfall Builders Ltd
Joining CHAS was far less daunting than we anticipated. External consultants had caused
undue worry about how difficult it would be to join.
We then spoke to members of your staff who were very reasuring and guided us
through the process with ease.
Frank Phillips Builders,
My assessor was a dedicated professional who conveyed high standards and ensured that we as a company met those very same standards.
When we initially sought CHAS Accreditation in 2010, I must admit that as a
safety professional I was a little bit sceptical of the scheme.
However on regaining the Accreditation recently, I can now see its benefits and the improvements
we have made as a company regarding safety over the last year.
Many thanks to all involved in delivering the CHAS Scheme.
, Health & Safety Manager,
Your assessor was very polite and helpful in a couple of areas I was unsure about.
Once I had completed the Acreditation form my certificate was with in me just in a few days.

helped to resolve queries in a professional and prompt manner.

As a small business the value for money that CHAS accreditation gives our business

management of health and safety. I am happy to recommend CHAS to other

I was very wary of applying for CHAS Registration due to the amount of paperwork required.
Our assessor was extremely helpful and patient and made the process run very smoothly
and efficiently. Would recommend their services very highly.
Lindsey, Brittania Shutters, 2011
CHAS is the best and most thorough safety accreditation system that Randall Contracting & Plant Group have found throughout our 40 years experience in the UK. In particular we greatly appreciate that CHAS deals directly with the company rather than 3rd parties i.e. consultants.
Marcus Lesser, Randall Plant Ltd, 2011
Rather than 'computer says no!' a common sense approach was taken
when our company was assessed for CHAS.
Mark Turner, Aspire Building Solutions, 2011
CHAS has helped us hugely. The positive feedback from the assessors and our approach to health and safety are ensuring that people are taking us seriously. All three of our assessors have been lovely, especially the last one. CHAS is hugely beneficial

assessment time on every contractor listed. Since 2003
we've saved 378 hours or 11 weeks work

We've seen a great improvement in the standard of contractors
since joining CHAS, we certainly wouldn't like to see a
fallback in standards without CHAS.

have undertaken H&S competency checks of our contractors

I have to say that I am very impressed that you recognise safe contractor in
this application which, minimises duplicate form filling and of course
the cost of the accreditation. You don’t often come across a company with
a fresh ‘sensible’ approach.
