Well done to all of the Therser UK team! After an extensive auditing and compliance process, we were delighted to have our CHAS Health and Safety accreditation renewed. The Contractor’s Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is one of the UK’s leading third-party accreditation services – arguably THE authority on health and safety compliance outside of the government HSE. The association’s accredited membership now includes over 1000 client organisations in the public and private sectors, as well as more than 70,000 registered contractors.
The CHAS Assessment
A CHAS assessment, the necessary preliminary to accreditation, involves an extensive review of a business’s health and safety policies and procedures, including record-keeping, communication and review process, as well as other criteria. The CHAS qualified assessors all have an extensive knowledge base of system design and risk management and approach each assessment pragmatically – analysing how health and safety good practices are applied in the applicant’s unique circumstances.
CHAS accreditation is therefore an accurate reflection of ‘health and safety in motion’ i.e. how established principles are successfully applied in a working company.
What This Means For You
For our customers, CHAS accreditation means that Therser is a business you can trust with health and safety. Our processes are efficient and effective, making us a business that contractors and customers can work with in confidence; knowing our services are of the highest quality.
