HEALTH AND SAFETY

Health and Safety

Elite Fire Solutions are committed to an organisational culture where responsibility for health, safety and welfare is recognised and delivered as an integral part of all activities to ensure all our obligations under Health and Safety regulations are met or exceeded. We plan to keep everyone who works, participates and visits us safe from harm.

CHAS LogoAs part of our ongoing commitment to our Health and Safety obligations, Elite Fire Solutions are delighted to announce that we have recently achieved CHAS accreditation. Construction site Health & Safety guidelines and legislation are in place to protect not only our employees but all persons on a construction site. By passing the extensive CHAS compliance process, we are now able to demonstrate to all Contractors and Developers that we adhere to strict Health & Safety policy and procedures and are mindful of managing risk to protect each and every site operative and visitor, within the parameters of our control, as a sub-contractor to Main Contractors.

Being a CHAS accredited contractor shows potential buyers that we are compliant with the highest standards of safety and it gives them peace of mind that when it comes to the various health and safety laws, they are in the right hands.

CHAS advise that the scheme holds benefits for both suppliers and buyers as follows;

  • 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 (Some buyers may require Accredited Status).
  • Inconsistencies are reduced where some suppliers may be judged compliant by one buyer but not another.
  • CHAS gives guidance on any weaknesses in a suppliers’ safety management, including how they can improve.
