Weblight achieves sixth consecutive CHAS award

Ware, Hertfordshire (PRWEB UK) 17 December 2013

Weblight specialist lighting solutions is pleased to announce it has met buyers’ health and safety standards for a sixth consecutive year and achieved accreditation to CHAS.

CHAS assesses a company’s health and safety policy statement, its organisation and also its specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to its buyers and to others.

Participating in the CHAS scheme helps both suppliers and buyers.

  •     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.
  •     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.

About CHAS: In 1997 a group of health and safety and procurement professionals from across Great Britain worked with the Association of London Government (ALG) to develop CHAS.

CHAS started with two main aims.

  •     To improve health and safety standards across Great Britain.
  •     To reduce duplicated safety applications for both suppliers and buyers.

They currently have more than 500 public and private sector buyer organisations, such as councils, housing associations, NHS trusts, including a growing number of large private companies who employ sub-contractors.

About Weblight: Weblight provides energy efficient lighting design, installation and maintenance solutions to the Retail, Healthcare, Commercial, Manufacturing, Transport & Logistics and Education sectors, whilst also working in partnership with many Facilities Management companies.
