CHAS Accreditation

CHAS Accreditation is a safety compliance scheme that is an integral part of Safety Schemes Procurement (SSIP), which assist in the health and safety pre-qualification process.

When you undertake CHAS registration, you will be demonstrating that you meet the recognised standards required by any organisation looking to employ you as a contractor.

Once your organisation is registered under the scheme it shows that your health and safety procedures and documentation are to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard.

Becoming CHAS accredited has proven time and time again to lead to more business opportunities, generating more business and profit for you and your company.

How would CHAS Accreditation benefit my Organisation?

  • It is a highly recognised standard that will save you time with pre-qualifications for other organisations.

  • You will have more opportunities to secure bigger and better commercial contracts that previously you may have not been shortlisted for.

  • This allows clients to have an assurance that all CHAS Accredited Contractors have been assessed to a minimum common Health and Safety Standard.

  • Improves your professional image allowing you to win more work.

SMAS Accrediation

SMAS is a member of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) and is a way of demonstrating your Health & Safety competence. Businesses from all backgrounds are open to apply and, assuming your application is successful, your certificate will be valid for 12 months.

Although more common for businesses in the construction sector, SMAS Worksafe accreditation is applicable across the board. If you’re a business that’s required to tender and/or complete pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs), SMAS Worksafe accreditation can give you a real boost.

Why? Because it shows the business you’re bidding for that you take Health & Safety seriously, and that you’re a safe company to team up with.

How would SMAS Accreditation benefit my Organisation

  • An SSIP accreditation such as SMAS is hugely beneficial for your business as it will enable you to use the SMAS WorkSafe logo and certification.

  • This demonstrates competence with health and safety practices and procedures making you appear far more reliable and capable to potential clients and satisfying the HSE if they ever pay a visit.

  • You will also be included on the SMAS database which increases your visibility to clients which is far more cost-effective than a major marketing campaign.

  • It provides peace of mind that businesses have the relevant processes and paperwork in place to comply with legislation and protect their business when working on site.

  • It helps businesses stay ahead of the competition and win more work opportunities when in the tender process.

Constructionline

Constructionline is one of the founding members of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) and is recognised by most clients and other organisations including the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) as being an Approved Health and Safety Assessment Scheme.

Being Constructionline accredited means that your business has met the health and safety standards as set by the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

This assures clients that you have been measured by a common minimum health and safety standard and met the requirements as assessed by Constructionline.

Constructionline is often used by local authority clients and government departments to pre-qualify contractors and suppliers allowing them to tender or bid for works/contracts with them. A large part of the Constructionline assessment is health and safety based and closely aligned to the SSIP Health and Safety Assessment. In addition to this, Constructionline also assesses other elements such as Environmental, Financial and Client References.

 

How would a Constructionline Accreditation benefit my Organisation?

  • The accreditation will help you win more work. Many organisations require businesses to be Constructionline registered.

  • Gain access to the Constructionline database of over 8000 buyers giving your business a promotional boost which would have been extremely expensive.

SafeContractor highlights your continuing good practice around health and safety.

With over 30,000 accredited members and nearly 400 major clients, many local authorities and private sector clients who regularly put out a tender, it is an important accreditation that they look for.

Once approved, your company is added to the SafeContractor prequalification database through which clients can browse. In other words, getting the accreditation and being on the database could allow for more work and tendering opportunities.

The SafeContractor competence assessment scheme is one of the largest and most well known of the SSIP Health and Safety Assessment Schemes.

Once you are approved by SafeContractor, you can use your SafeContractor Membership to easily gain other SSIP Accreditations such as CHAS and SMAS for example.
