ATC Construction Accreditations
CHAS – The Contractors Health & Safety Agreement
CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) looking for suitably competent suppliers. 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.

• Their organisation for health and safety;
• Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
