Harris Signs has just been re-awarded, The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme, known as CHAS for the fifth consecutive year.
The CHAS accreditation process ensures that contractors are complying with current legislation and best practice across a range of health and safety disciplines. This provides potential customers with the assurance that they are using a supplier that is training its workforce to the highest standard and is following health and safety procedures when carrying out work.
Chris Boyce, Quality Systems Administrator at Harris Signs said: “Accreditation to CHAS is a rigorous process which checks the training that our employees have undertaken and also looks for evidence of our health and safety processes. “In our case we also have a NEBOSH registered external health and safety advisor, who visits our premises throughout the year and also visits customer sites where we are currently working. This regular audit of our health and safety systems ensures that our business is always fully compliant.”
The CHAS accreditation scheme is also is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) scheme and this means that as a business it simplifies the tendering processes for us and our customers.
