There are many reasons why our clients make CHAS part of their process for choosing contractors. Moral reasons include a desire to set a good example by working safely. The fact that the scheme saves companies money means there are sound business reasons too. These include best value, meeting procurement regulations and a duty to provide value for money and efficiency savings.
Employers also have legal duties. Section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 says all companies that employ five or more people must have a written statement of their health and safety policy. Regulations make employers responsible for assessing the health and safety standards of any company they use to carry out work on their behalf. This is designed to protect the employer’s staff and everyone else who is affected by their work.
Employers also have a duty to monitor companies to make sure they are working safely. Of course, the level of assessment and any monitoring should match the level of risk.
