Progress Housing Group has once again achieved CHAS accreditation!
We are happy to announce that we hold the CHAS standard (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) which aims to improve health and safety standards across the UK.
In October 2021, we submitted our application for CHAS Assessment which has been reviewed by an assessor and deemed compliant against the CHAS standard.
As part of the submission we are required to evidence compliance in 12 key areas of risk management in construction. This includes, financial, corporate and professional standard, health and safety, environmental and quality management, corporate social responsibility and equality. It is a thorough process that recognises by mitigating risks in these areas, we can protect our business from financial loss, reputational damage, and ensure our colleagues, customers and contractors are as safe as possible.
This accreditation is important to Progress Housing Group to not only show our commitment to health and safety, but also to demonstrate to others, including organisations who we deliver services for, that we have good standards in place for health and safety management and are achieving good levels of performance.
We are delighted to have retained the accreditation for another year. A copy of our certificate is available here.
