CHAS, or the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme, is one of the founding members of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) and is recognised by clients and other organisations including the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) as being a Stage 1 Approved Health and Safety Assessment Scheme.
The purpose of the CHAS Accreditation Scheme is to simplify the contractor assessment and pre-qualification process by adopting a common standard in accordance with the competence assessment requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.
This allows clients to have an assurance that as a CHAS Accredited Contractor, TMP Interiors has been assessed to a minimum common Health and Safety Standard.
For many organisations, CHAS accreditation is now considered a prerequisite before a contractor is allowed on to a tender list.
Hence as well as health and safety, CHAS now has significant commercial importance as without it, companies can be excluded from tender lists altogether.
It also shows potential clients, and the HSE, that TMP Interiors is compliant with the highest standards of safety in our business.
