CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) was created by experienced health and safety professionals in 1997 to improve health and safety standards across the UK.​


In partnership with the Association of London Government (ALG), CHAS was a key developer of the core criteria held in the Approved Code of Practice which supported the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (now recogonised as CDM 2015) and is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). As one of the founders of third party accreditation CHAS are not only a trusted advisor on health and safety compliance, they are an authority.


This health and safety legislation was created to achieve the following aims: 

  • To simplify health and safety contractor assessment by standardising requirements. 
  • To allow companies to avoid undergoing health and safety assess ments for every job.

CHAS undergoes an annual third-party audit to achieve and maintain the HSE’s Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) standard.
​They  also demonstrate quality management to ISO 9001 standard and environmental management to ISO 14001. The health and safety assessment complies with stage 1 health & safety pre-qualification as defined by CDM 2015.​​


CHAS are an authority. They set industry benchmarks, provide assurance and reassurance, and offer best-in-class services that are easy to use and cost effective.
