CHAS

What is CHAS?

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

The main purpose of CHAS is to avoid repeated applications by suppliers and contractors to become approved as local authority suppliers and to improve health and safety in small to medium sized businesses. Whilst the CHAS assessment scheme is a local authority and government backed scheme, it can be used by any organisation looking to short list suppliers and contractors and can save time and money for all parties. CHAS is also a registered member of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Forum. This means you will not have to answer further questions for SSIP contracts.

How do I become CHAS Approved?

Our consultants here at Cornwall Training will take care of the whole process for you. It will all begin with a consultation with one of our consultants who will explain the process to you. This can be done in person or over the phone/skype/video link if required. 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 done for you BY US! We will then apply for CHAS for you and we guarantee approval if all of our advice and guidance is adhered to!

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 become SMAS approved?

There are a number of areas that the SMAS standards will look at. They include;

Health and safety policy

Risk assessments

Method statements

Accident reporting

Insurances

Training records

Management systems.
