Local business Robinsons have been awarded accreditation from CHAS the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme having shown that they have demonstrated compliance with and sound management of current basic health and safety legislation.
In an increasingly competitive market, contractors such as Robinsons apply for work with public and private sector organisations and to win these contracts companies must be able to demonstrate that they meet the buyer’s health and safety standards.
Being CHAS approved, reduces the time that organisations need to spend assessing a contractor’s suitability for a contract as supplier’s compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
CHAS assesses applicants on:
- Health and safety policy statement.
- Their organisation for health and safety.
- Their specific health and safety arrangements are to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
Employing over 100 people, Robinsons is principally involved in the manufacture of steel-framed buildings to industrial and agricultural specifications. Most recent clients have included major players such as Lidl, Paragon Inks, Rosti (UK) and Grants Distillery to name but a few.
Gaining an accreditation from CHAS will allow Robinsons to further develop their industrial and principal contractor business and enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and reassure their customers that they treat the health and safety of their employees and all who access Robinson’s site with the utmost importance.
Managing Director, Ryan Brown states,“Being awarded accreditation from CHAS on top of our accreditation from Safecontractor earlier this year, is a great achievement for us. It enhances our offering and our clients can be assured that we are committed to the safety of our workers and contractors.”
“This award further strengthens our position as one of the premier construction companies in the UK by being recognised for our high standards of workmanship. As an ever-expanding company, it is important for us to have a positive impact on the world around us by ensuring our workforce is safe and happy on our sites.”
Client organisations who sign up for the scheme can access a database, enabling them to access
Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included in a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Client organisations who sign up for the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 210 major, nationwide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
