CDS Energy Services is delighted to announce its recent accreditation within the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS).
The standardised assessment scheme was developed in 1997 by a group of health and safety and procurement professionals from across Great Britain. Working alongside the Association of London Government (ALG), the aim was to improve health and safety standards across Great Britain and also reduce duplicated safety applications for both suppliers and buyers.
Contractors and consultants applying for work with public and private sector organisations must be able to meet the buyer’s health and safety standards in order to be successful in winning work.
CHAS has become a widely recognised accreditation and a prerequisite for many organisations in the tendering process, demonstrating compliance with health and safety law. Organisations are accredited after demonstrating compliance with and sound management of current basic health and safety legislation.
The three-stage assessment process takes account of organisations’ health and safety policy statements, company organisation for health and safety and specific health and safety arrangements, acceptable to potential buyers.
Accreditation within the scheme is of great value to CDS Energy Services in aiding the efficiency of tendering processes, but also in demonstrating the firm’s continuous commitment to health and safety throughout all of its operations.
It is hoped that the accreditation will stand the company in good stead for securing a variety of contracts over the forthcoming months.
