Fire Lining Systems Ltd awarded Constructionline & CHAS Accreditation for Fire Protection Services
Constructionline & SSIP – The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme. Following on from achieving ISO 9001, ISO18001, ISO 14001 & Firas Certification, Fire Lining Systems Ltd has now gained Constructionline & CHAS Accreditation.
This is a scheme that aids organisations in identifying suitable contractors, suppliers and consultants, by providing information about their health and safety management systems. The scheme is open to the public and private sector. Membership extends to health trusts, councils, emergency services, the voluntary sector, housing associations, government departments and large private companies who use subcontractors including Alfred McAlpine, Royal Mail Group and British Aerospace.
The aim of the scheme is to avoid repeated applications by contractors and consultants in safety pre-qualification. This saves time and money for all involved. In addition, a Constructionline & CHAS assessment may cancel the need for a full assessment when tendering for work with members.
The Association of London Government Health and Safety Forum have licensed Merton Council as the Constructionline & SSIP administrator to promote and run the scheme on their behalf. A National Management Board were established in 2002 to check the scheme is managed and developed in line with it’s constitution. Members of the management board represent the national membership and include the GMB and UCATT trade unions and safety and procurement professionals. Members have clearly defined aims and objectives that demonstrate the professional way the scheme is operated.
Participating in the Constructionline & CHAS scheme helps both companies and clients:
– It makes sure a company is compliant with important parts of health and safety law.
– It means clients do not have to repeat the effort of assessing health and safety compliance of applications for companies who have already been assessed to Constructionline & CHAS standards.
– Companies do not have to undergo health and safety assessments every time they apply for work – clients will know they have been successfully assessed before.
– It will get rid of inconsistency where some contractors may be judged compliant by one client but not others.
