What Is CHAS and who needs it?
The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is an accreditation scheme for the construction industry. Its purpose is to help both buyers and suppliers in the assessment of health and safety competence.
CHAS is a pre-qualification during construction industry tenders, buyers make CHAS accreditation compulsory before they will accept a tender. This is very common in the procurement process for public organisations as it saves them the time of assessing a contractor’s H&S competence themselves.
