About our assessors
All CHAS assessors work freelance
When an assessor applies to work for CHAS, they not only have to provide relevant
Health & Safety qualifications and experience they also have to provide references
showing that they are good at providing practical health & safety advice.
They are real people who are not just book learners but have extensive practical knowledge and experience.
Our assessors have a vast knowledge base covering many sectors and through
an on-line network group and buddy system, are able to discuss any unusual issues with colleagues
Before starting work with us, they are also required to attend CHAS assessor training.
This training looks specifically at applying our CHAS standards, time-frames for work
to be carried out and how to ensure that the information is entered onto the
CHAS website correctly. This training has to be renewed on a 2 yearly basis.
Once an assessor starts receiving work from us, they are automatically required to submit a
percentage of assessments carried out for Quality Assurance checks.
The results of these checks are monitored and any issues dealt with by the
CHAS management team.
We pride ourselves in employing helpful friendly people as one of our aims is to
improve Health & Safety, and you cannot do that without good communication skills.
To back this up, over the next 12 to 18 months, CHAS plans to send
all of its Assessors on the IRCA approved SSIP Core Criteria Assessor training
course which CHAS believes will give further confidence to Buyers and Suppliers
that our assessments are consistent and carried out by competent assessors
All CHAS Assessors are NEBOSH qualified, practicing health and safety professionals who also attend CHAS specific training on a regular basis.
CHAS currently has a team of over 130 accredited assessors.
