The CHAS health and safety assessment scheme is a pre-approval scheme to allow contractors to show potential clients that they meet the required health and safety standards.
The main purpose of CHAS is to avoid repeated applications by suppliers and contractors to become approved as local authority suppliers and to improve health and safety in small to medium sized businesses. Whilst the CHAS assessment scheme is a local authority and government backed scheme, it can be used by any organisation looking to short list suppliers and contractors and can save time and money for all parties.

In 1999 SupplyLine was born. After further development the product was expanded to provide web based access to its clients and was re-branded as Safecontractor in 2003.
Steady growth and the adoption of the system by some major brand names such as Kellogg, Debenhams Retail Plc, Home Retail Group and General Motors UK, saw entry into new client markets and further growth in contractor members.

How do I become Acclaim approved?
The Constructionline Health and Safety Appendix has been replaced with the Acclaim Accreditation Questionnaire. This questionnaire is designed so that the answers to each question can be assessed by a team of trained and experienced assessors for members who want a ‘third party’ health and safety accreditation.
Members that choose not to have the health and safety assessment, will still be required to complete the questionnaire so buyers are able to view responses and supporting documentation or upload a valid SSIP certificate.
Many Clients will now only use contractors and consultants selected from an approved database who have demonstrated the appropriate level of competence in their H&S management systems. Clients can be assured that contractors and consultants who have been assessed and accredited by an SSIP member scheme have achieved the initial threshold of competence to provide specific services. Compass will assist you in completing SMAS and deal with them directly on your behalf.
