Hascat SafetyCHAS Accreditation

Most CHAS applications fail because individual companies do not have access to competent advice. You are expected to provide risk assessments and method statements for work undertaken and provide details of your health and safety policy together with your sources of competent health and safety advice as required by the Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1999.

HASCAT Safety can assist with your application by providing the paperwork you need. For a modest fee we can be your source of competent advice and will provide telephone support; alternatively we can provide a complete Safety Advisor Service.

Risk Assessment

Risk assessments are seen as a cornerstone of good health and safety. They are both a legal necessity and requirement of your insurance company.

   

General Risk Assessment

A general risk assessment is carried out by inspecting the workplace and work activities to assess the risks to health and safety and the measures required to control those risks. This general risk assessment may identify the need for additional risk or task-specific assessments.

A fire risk assessment helps you identify the fire hazards and risks in your workplace.
