CHAS

What is CHAS?

The CHAS health and safety assessment scheme is a pre-approval scheme that allows contractors to show potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards.

Its main purpose is to eliminate repeated applications from suppliers and contractors who seek to become approved, local authority suppliers, and to improve health and safety in small to medium sized businesses. Whilst the CHAS assessment scheme is backed by government and local, it can also be used by any organisation to short list suppliers and contractors, saving time and money for all concerned. CHAS is also a registered member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Forum, which means there will be no further question to be answered when applying for SSIP contracts.

How do I become CHAS Approved?

A Cornwall Training consultant will complete the whole project for you. The first step is to explain the process. This can be done in person, over the phone, or via a skype/video link, if preferred. A full audit of your processes and practices will be undertaken and anything that is found to be missing, or requires amending, or updating will be undertaken by our consultant, who will then apply for CHAS on your behalf. Approval is guaranteed – provided you adhere to our advice and guidance.

SMAS

WHAT IS SMAS?

Holding a valid SSIP Member Scheme certificate means that a contractor has demonstrated their capability by meeting the SSIP ‘core criteria’. A key aim of the SSIP Forum is to reduce the burden and cost of H&S bureaucracy across the construction industry and as part of this, your SMAS H&S certificate will be recognised by the other SSIP members who offer mutual recognition.

How do I obtain SMAS approval?

SMAS Standards Pay particular attention to a number of areas. These include:

  • Health and safety policy
  • Risk assessments
  • Method statements
  • Accident reporting
  • Insurances
  • Training records
  • Management systems.
