CHAS Client Services Are Second to None and Absolutely FREE
If finding the right contractor for new projects feels like a daunting task, let CHAS assist you. Our Contractor Engagement service is entirely free for clients. Simply enter your geographic and skill requirements into our powerful contractor search tool and you’ll be able to see available contractors working in the specified area.
By searching our database of 35,000 contractors based on your selection criteria, you will be able to quickly and easily narrow down which contractors to contact, view any potential compliance issues with those contractors and put out invitations to tender, streamlining the procurement process.
CHAS exists to help companies and contractors reduce risk and protect their reputations. Our Contractor Matching service makes it easy to assess the compliance of your existing supply chain against our national accreditation database, which contains the details of over 35,000 contractors.
Once you request a Contractor Matching Report, the results will be returned to you in five to ten working days. You’ll receive a brief report detailing match and compliance rates, which can be used to generate board reports, profile your contractors and prepare a risk reduction plan.
CHAS can also help you to conduct a compliance awareness campaign by sending out a communication to your supply chain that details the rationale and standards you wish to apply and how they can achieve the required status.
The CHAS Common Assessment Standard
The CHAS Common Assessment Standard streamlines the accreditation process and makes it easier to for clients to assess compliance across their supply chain. Once you’ve successfully achieved certification, you’ll receive all the benefits of being CHAS-accredited for one year. After that, it’s easy to renew accreditation; we’ll ask you a set of standardised questions based on good practice.
We have four packages available — CHAS Health and Safety, Premium, Premium Plus and Premier — each offering a different level of accreditation. Clients may select which level of accreditation contractors must possess, but all modules from each package must be successfully completed to achieve the Common Assessment Standard. There are 12 modules available:
- Health and Safety
- Financial and Business Standing
- Corporate and Professional Standing
- Quality Management
- Equal Opportunities and Diversity
- Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
- Information Security and GDPR
- Building Information Modelling
- Anti-Bribery and Corruption
- Modern Slavery
Van Compliance Scheme (VCS)
Organisations can address the risks of van-driving work by earning the Van Compliance Scheme (VCS) certification, which has been developed in partnership with the Freight Transport Association’s Van Excellence Programme.
The VCS includes comprehensive checks of the driver, the vehicle, safe-working practices, record keeping and record retention. Successful completion of the assessment provides van drivers with evidence of safe van fleet operation and is suitable for business looking to work towards Van Excellence accreditation.
