CHAS helps suppliers and buyers by aiming to avoid duplication when it comes to meeting health and safety standards. Public and private sector organisations can avoid having to go through the lengthy and time consuming compliance process in order to assess DG Timber Solutions. CHAS has assessed our health and safety policy statement, our organisation for health and safety and our specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to CHAS’ buyers and to others.
SMAS is a health and safety assessment organisation that works with many of the major UK housebuilders in new build construction as well as many other construction organisations.
