A high percentage of new business is generated through successful tenders. Over the years the number of lead contractors that make CHAS registration a prerequisite in the tendering stage has risen substantially. One of our biggest customers accepts CHAS as an alternative to having to go through their own health and safety questionnaires. This allows us to streamline our tendering process to maximise the number of projects we can work on.

Greens Decorating Contractors Ltd.

With my company being small, the assessment works well for me, but also keeps me up to date with all my H&S. Without using CHAS some of these things could get forgotten about, so would cost my company in contracts in the future.

T Brown Joiners.

Joining CHAS really made us consider out H&S procedures in more detail and having to document them all instantly makes them easier to maintain and renew.

Ecological Land Management Ltd.

CHAS is a great service which has helped my company become better and which has resulted in us winning more contracts of work. I have also recommended CHAS to other companies I work alongside who have now also become CHAS accredited.

MA Brickworks Ltd.

The accreditation process itself is a great way of monitoring the H&S within your own company, so by itself forces training in areas you may not be familiar with, so money well spent.

I would just like to thank you for your help and expertise throughout this whole process. My experience with CHAS was great from start to finish.

We first achieved our CHAS accreditation in 1998 and have found it very useful as a means of demonstrating that we comply with current health & safety law in the construction industry. CHAS is recognised across the whole of our industry so it reduces the amount of time and resources needed to pre-qualify for projects.

Need help with your CHAS registration?

Our friendly office staff are happy to help if you do not understand something on our forms or the application process. See how to apply or contact us . We can also guide you to free sources of information and example documents if you are just starting out on the Health & Safety road. See list of useful websites.

Nobody is perfect. Some companies when they apply may have left out a small piece (or pieces) of information or might need to amend something. This is normal. However, as part of our service your assessor will give you feedback on what may be missing or in need of clarification and give you time to send it to them. As a result of this supportive approach we are proud that the fail rate for applications to us in the last financial year was less than one percent. Reasons we may fail your CHAS assessment

All of our assessors are friendly, qualified, competent Health & Safety officers who are committed to improving Health & Safety, and pride themselves in guiding companies in the right direction. Read more about the CHAS assessors
