CHAS is the Contractor's Health and Safety scheme.
For CarmichaelUK each month contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet our 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 our:
1. Health and safety policy statement;
2. Internal processes in the organisation for health and safety;
3. Specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
