CHAS was created in 1997 by health and safety professionals to improve the overall health and safety standards across the UK. Once you have become CHAS certified, you must be audited annually to achieve and maintain your HSE’s Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) standard.
CHAS stands for Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme and is a pre-qualification programme that allows businesses and local authorities to prove that you have the minimum standard requirements.
Whilst the CHAS assessment scheme is a government-backed scheme, it can be used by any company who is looking to shortlist their suppliers and contractors as well as saving time and money for all involved.
The benefits of being CHAS certified, other than the fact that it is a leading highly recognised standard within its right, is that you save a lot of time with pre-qualification for other businesses and the fact that if you are CHAS certified, more companies with work with you, therefore enhancing your growth and opportunity abilities. It also enables you to go after and win larger contracts, having CHAS.
Furthermore, CHAS also shows that you are fully compliant with the health and safety requirements and therefore improves health and safety best practices. The time it takes to assess a business’s health and safety ability is very time-consuming and can take some time to complete the process. We take all that time and resource away from you and support with filling out the application and going through the correct process speedily and productively for our clients.
We recognised that by becoming CHAS certified, this would reduce the number of problems you’ll face along the way. Once you have achieved your CHAS standard, companies will be looking for a contractor they know will meet their needs. Some of our consultants are CHAS Auditors, hence they understand the full process in what it takes to become full compliant within this scheme.

Frequently Asked Questions from our Customers
Yes we can, we can assist you with any of the accreditation featured on our website. We have a 100% record of securing any of the accreditation in the first audit for all our customers for the last 13 years.
More to the point, I ask clients how quickly can you start. We can have a consultant working on your accreditation within the hour if you are ready. The only things that take time are the audit dates, these are issued to the client by the certification body so it is out of our control.
This depends on how much the client has in place already. The more they have, the easier it becomes to work on their accreditation. The gap analysis that we carry out is free of charge and afterwards will give you an exact fixed price.
The fixed price will include the following –
- Carry out all the work ( creating documents & processes tailored to your company )
- Attend the audit ( as your expert consultant ) or make the desktop submission.
- Make any corrections that the auditor may highlight to ensure that you obtain your accreditation the first audit.
Initially, we need to talk to you to carry out the free gap analysis. Afterwards, we would require you to forward all the relevant documents. After that, we can complete the work with the minimum of your input, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best for the company.
