We have now been accredited by the Contractors Health & Safety Scheme, CHAS.
CHAS is widely used in the commercial property and construction industries by clients who want to employ only the safest contractors.
James Ostler, Director Positive Environmental said ‘We had to complete a fairly extensive questionnaire to demonstrate our health & safety management procedures, though having previously run a safety consultancy the process was fairly straightforward.’
‘As a relatively young company, it can be hard to break into large companies, this accreditation is a major step forward and allows us to actually talk to these larger clients. It should also help us to compete against national contractors who tend to dominate some of these large industries. I always encourage potential clients to use local contractors to support the local economy.’
One of Positive Environmental’s larger clients Worcester Community Housing have already committed to working with accredited contractors.
Marc Mayall, Head of Building Maintenance said ‘It’s great to see Positive Environmental achieve CHAS accreditation. They ensure safe working practices and quality services are the forefront of all they do and the accreditation is testament to this work.’
“Here at Worcester Community Housing we take the health and safety of our customers, staff and contractors seriously and we are proud to work with contractors who share these values and who work to do the same.”
