CHAS registration and accreditation benefits – 0844 3 247 249

There are many reasons why you may need to be CHAS registered and accredited, but the one compelling reason is that it allows you to work in both the public and private sector.

For instance, a local council will say that we require you to be CHAS qualified to:

  1. Tender for contracts with the local Council or main contractor
  2. Avoid duplication of submitting multiple H&S Questionnaires to clients
  3. Avoid being assessed as compliant by one employer but not another
  4. To be considered for contracts that you previously would not have been shortlisted for
  5. Save time and money for all parties.

The CHAS Assessment Scheme is a non-commercial, government run scheme. CHAS has been developed over quite a number of years by local government health & safety professionals, with the support of the Health and Safety Executive.

The major benefit though is that you are demonstrating that you are a forward thinking company and have systems in place that mark you above your competition. It may also be that the local council has just had a change and now requires its contractors to be CHAS registered. Certainly we have helped several companies become CHAS accredited that have been working for the local council for years, but who now require CHAS accreditation.

The CHAS qualification is also more than just a sticker on your van. People do use the CHAS database to access companies for jobs they need doing. This means they know the people are already CHAS accredited and have been proved capable of doing the work.

Clients from both the public and private sectors use the CHAS Assessment Scheme to make assessments of contractors in this way. One of the benefits to contractors is that by making a successful CHAS application, you can demonstrate to a wide number of potential clients that you achieve or exceed the minimum standards laid down by the CHAS Assessment scheme.

Contractors health and safety assessment scheme

If you’re a contractor then keeping an excellent health and safety record is vital to your success.

That’s why the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) offers a great way to publicly acknowledge you work safely and responsibly at all times.

But what exactly do you need to know about the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme?

Firstly, the assessment is carried out as a desktop assessment meaning no visits to your premises are needed.

However, in order for the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme to be implemented you need to ensure you supply all supporting documents and evidence needed.

The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme process is a simple one with assessors doing all they can to advise you on what is needed for compliance.

Don’t panic if you receive an initial failure letter or a request for further information after you have sent all the paperwork in.

The beauty of the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme means that you will be told what needs to be improved and then, within an agreed timescale, be invited to reapply when everything is sorted.

A fundamental principle of the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme is to help any supplier improve their safety management if they fail the initial assessment.

On rare occasions, if a supplier’s policy or arrangements are poor, you may be told to seek health and safety advice.

Once you have done this and consulted with an expert you should soon be in a much stronger position to pass the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme in no time at all.

CHAS | The Contractors Health and Assessment Scheme 0844 3 247 249

CHAS or in its full title The Contractors Health and Assessment Scheme, is an accreditation scheme for companies working mainly in the private sector.

The scheme was setup to save companies having to supply lots of documentation to Merton Councilso that they could do work for them. The scheme was so successful that it was rolled out to other councils.

So why do you need it ?
Well the answer is fairly simple, councils and other organisations want their suppliers to be of a certain standard, and CHAS is one of the ways of making sure of that.

So The Contractors health and assessment scheme may be good for your company.

Here at iwantchas we help people get CHAS qualified. You can go through the process yourself but it can take ages if you don’t have the right documentation and in not right form for the acreditiors. We know of many companies that have done it them selves, but it took two weeks to do. I suspect that you have better things to get on with.

So what to do next is, give us a ring on 0844 3 247 249. We can then explain to you what happens and what, if anything we need from you.

CHAS accreditation fee

CHAS accreditation fee

One question that gets asked a lot is ‘how much is CHAS?’ and why is there a CHAS accreditation fee? The answer is not one figure.

So what is the answer?
CHAS falls into two basic camps, 1-4 employees and 5+ employees. As you would expect more documentation is needed for a larger company.�

The next consideration is whether you have all the documentation. Meaning if you have been through health safety training for your company, you may have all the documents already. But a lot of companies don’t and this is where they come unstuck.

That’s why you see companies like ours and others helping you get CHAS accreditation and why you are wondering about the CHAS accreditation fee.

The hard work is getting the form filled in correctly first time and to the degree that keeps the CHAS governing body happy. We have heard of some compaines doing it themselves and taking 2 weeks to get everything in place. Surely you would agree that this is waste of your time and efforts.

The form filing is different every time because not every company is the same.

The CHAS governing body charge for the certificate is

£210 + VAT for 5+ employees

£140 + VAT for 1-4 employees

The certificate you have to pay for, and this has to be paid to the governing body directly.

I Want CHAS charge to help get you through the process. The charges do vary because of size of company. We do operate a straight fee, meaning there are no hidden fees. We take an initial payment deposit to start the process and the rest when the work is done.

I won’t go on about the benefits of being CHAS accredited, they are numerous, but if you are missing out on work or perhaps want your company to the next step, then CHAS registration is a option you should strongly consider.
