Quickslide has been awarded its CHAS certificate of accreditation, the construction industry’s leading standard of health and safety accreditation in procurement.
CHAS – the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme – is the UK’s long-established third-party guarantee of a company’s high standards of health and safety competence. While not a legal requirement for a business, it is often a prerequisite of tender processes, particularly for commercial house-building and public sector projects.
Quickslide underwent a thorough CHAS assessment of its health and safety management systems before being awarded the standard and issued with certification and the CHAS logo to display. The certificate and logo demonstrate proof of compliance against the CHAS standards in line with the requirements of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) and UK health and safety legislation, and it is valid for one year.
“CHAS accreditation is another way UK house builders know at a glance that they can have full confidence in our business,” said Quickslide’s Managing Director Ben Weber.
“CHAS has been around a long time and is well regarded in our industry. This accreditation recognises our commitment to high standards of health and safety, and gives assurance that we meet all the required standards and comply with current legislation.
“In addition, being a CHAS accredited supplier gives our customers a head start when it comes to tendering for work, helping avoid lengthy and time-consuming paperwork that might otherwise be required during the pre-qualification process.”
