Robinsons have been awarded accreditation from CHAS, the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme having shown that we have demonstrated compliance with and sound management of current basic health and safety legislation.
In an increasingly competitive market, contractors such as ourselves apply for work with public and private sector organisations and to win these contracts we must be able to demonstrate that we meet the buyer’s health and safety standards.
Being CHAS approved, reduces the time that organisations need to spend assessing a contractor’s suitability for a contract as supplier’s compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.
CHAS assesses applicants on:
1. Health and safety policy statement;
2. Their organisation for health and safety;
3. Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
Employing over 100 people, we are principally involved in the manufacture of steel framed buildings to industrial and agricultural specifications. Most recent clients have included major players such as Lidl, Paragon Inks, Rosti (UK) and Grants Distillery to name but a few.
Gaining accreditation from CHAS will allow us to further develop our industrial and principal contractor business and enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and reassure our customers that we treat the health and safety of our employees and all who access a Robinsons site with the utmost importance.
Managing Director, Ryan Brown states “Being awarded accreditation from CHAS on top of our accreditation from Safecontractor earlier this year, is a great achievement for us. It enhances our offering and our clients can be assured that we are committed to the safety of our workers and contractors.”
“This award further strengthens our position as one of the premier construction companies in the UK by being recognised for our high standards of workmanship. As an ever expanding company, it is important for us to have a positive impact on the world around us by ensuring our workforce are safe and happy on our sites.”
