Health and Safety

The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)

Health & Safety is a huge part of the construction industry. Many contractors will not allow people onto their sites unless they have adequate health & safety procedures and understand the requirements and demands needed to be on site. Airtight & Noisecheck Ltd are fully CHAS compliant, therefore our clients can be rest assured that we understand the implications of a busy site and will have all the necessary information available. All of our risk assessments and method statements are individually designed and site specific. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.

The application process is very thorough, and during this stage we are assessed on the following criteria:

  • 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.

Participating in the CHAS scheme helps both suppliers and buyers, the points listed below are just some of the advantages of using a CHAS compliant company.

  • Suppliers show compliance with important parts of health and safety law (the core criteria described in the CDM regulations).
  • On achieving compliance a supplier is approved to work for all of CHAS’ buyers. (Some Buyers may require “Accredited" Status)
  • Inconsistencies are reduced where some suppliers may be judged compliant by one buyer but not another.
  • CHAS gives guidance on any weaknesses in a supplier’s safety management, including how they can improve.
  • Being a CHAS supplier or buyer saves both time and resources.

CSCS - Construction Skills Certification Scheme

In addition to the above, all engineers hold a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, again this shows that health & safety plays a vital role throughout our company and all of our engineers understand the important of staying safe on site.

The reason CSCS was set up is to to help the construction industry to improve quality and reduce accidents. CSCS cards are increasingly demanded as proof of occupational competence by contractors, public and private clients and others.

All Airtight & Noisecheck Ltd engineers have CSCS cards, therefore showing our commitment to maintaining high levels of health & safety on site.
