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, and being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
The British Safety Council’s Sword of Honour award recognises and celebrates the excellence of the winning organisations and their employees in managing health, safety and environmental risks. What all of the past Sword winning organisations share is a commitment and resolve to achieve exemplary standards of health, safety and environmental management and to keep their employees and those affected by their work activities healthy and safe. The British Safety Council Sword of Honour represents a pinnacle of achievement in the world of health and safety management.
