Health & Safety at Work – CHAS Accreditation
In May of this year Corecut achieved CHAS accreditation. CHAS being the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme which is used by many buyers as their preferred method of assessing the competency of their suppliers Health & Safety procedures.
CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is a non-commercial scheme available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) looking for suitably competent suppliers.
Each month thousands of contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the buyer’s health and safety standards.
Assessing suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
CHAS assesses applicants:
- Health and safety policy statement;
- Their organisation for health and safety;
- Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to buyers and to others.
So choose Corecut and be assured of their competency and attitude to Health and Safety.
