CHAS Accreditation Print Email Principles and Purpose: (From the CHAS website) "Each month thousands of contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the buyer's health and safety standards. Assessing suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers". CHAS assesses applicants: Health and safety policy statement; Their organisation for health and safety; Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others." At J&E Woodworks, we have worked hard to meet the standards required by the CHAS organisation and are pleased to say that we are CHAS accredited. In a similar vein, we are also registered with Constructionline.
