What is the difference between Chas and SafeContractor?

by Nathaniel Santiago|09 May 2021|Finance|Insurance|24 views
In terms of cost, CHAS is slightly cheaper but is still a commitment, just like SafeContractor is. It is more a question of which scheme will open most doors once accredited. It may be that actually neither are suitable, and you will need to look at other health and safety accreditation schemes.

Considering this, what is CHAS accreditation?

CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) is a pre-approval scheme, which allows contractors to demonstrate to potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards.

Subsequently, question is, is Chas UKAS accredited?

UKAS is a private, not for profit organisation and is appointed as the national accreditation body by Accreditation Regulations 2009 (SI No 3155/2009) and the EU Regulation (EC) 765/2008.

What is SSIP?

What is SSIP? Founded in May 2009, Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) is an umbrella organisation that pulls together multiple occupational health and safety schemes with the aim of reducing costs and duplication for both suppliers and buyers, particularly in the construction industry.

Is Chas worth having?

Posted By Liz Maw We are an electrical contracting company and we have found CHAS a tedious process to go through but worth it. It does depend on the type of work you are chasing but if you work in the public sector many local authorities and government departments ask if you are CHAS accredited in tender submissions.
