CHAS and a leading e-Learning service provider will launch online training initiative
help contractors comply with their health & safety training needs in March
CHAS will be
launching an online training initiative to help contractors achieve the necessary health and safety qualifications for CHAS approval. This new initiative will
reduce the training burden on contractors by enabling them to access the large library of industry approved online contractor health and safety e-Learning courses provided by this leading national provider. This development will make it easier for CHAS contractors
to complete their annual assessment whilst reducing training costs.
One of the biggest burdens and cost on contractors gaining CHAS approval
is putting in place the necessary health and safety training. Small and medium sized contractors face a particular challenge in this respect as they do not have the scale of operation for their own internal training department. Typically, they have to send staff away on public courses
which are expensive, disruptive and difficult to arrange at short notice.
CHAS contractors will now have the option of
training their employees online via e-Learning courses at significantly lower cost and far greater convenience. The health and safety courses on offer are independently approved and industry standard - they include:
The per trainee fee for these recognised e-Learning courses are lower cost than the equivalent classroom option as well as being more convenient to take. Where there is an urgent need for training to complete a CHAS approval the required courses can now be completed straight away at the employee's convenience.
CHAS will be working closely with our partner to make this training initiative easy to access and a
seamless part of the annual approval process. For example, CHAS will be providing an
online portal to make it easy to decide which courses are required and how to access them. There will also be
a free training advisory helpline to guide contractors to the most cost-effective option.
