GME Group Ltd have this year been awarded the coveted CHAS Accreditation.
CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) was originally created by experienced health and safety professionals in 1997. Designed 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 recognised as CDM 2015). Also 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 a great authority. Setting industry benchmarks, providing assurance and reassurance, and offering best-in-class services that are easy to use and cost effective.
This health and safety legislation was created to achieve the following aims:
- To simplify health and safety contractor assessment by regulating requirements.
- To allow companies to avoid undergoing health and safety assessments for every job.
In order to be approved with the CHAS Accreditation, GME Group Ltd will have been assessed by a highly experienced Health and Safety auditor, demonstrating compliance with a wide range of current legislation in regards to policy, procedures and arrangements. We also had to ensure that the company is financially capable of delivering the requirements of the contract.
