Founded in 1997, CHAS stands for the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme. It is the established market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK, being both the largest and the fastest growing health and safety assessment scheme in the country, and it has two main aims:
- To improve health and safety standards across Great Britain
- To reduce duplicated safety applications for both suppliers and buyers
It is available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) in both the public and private sectors looking for suitably competent suppliers. They have over 720 buyer members and over 62,000 suppliers on their database.
Kingdom is one of those suppliers. Because Kingdom participates in the CHAS accreditation scheme, buyers who also participate in the scheme can be sure that Kingdom meets their health and safety standards. This means that the buyer does not have to spend time and resources assessing Kingdom’s health and safety competence, thus reducing duplication for potential clients, giving them reassurance, and saving them time and effort, as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
In order to have accreditation renewed, CHAS assessed Kingdom’s health and safety policy statement, the organisation’s health and safety, and their specific health and safety arrangements to ensure they met a standard acceptable to buyers and to others.
