    Sunsquare achieve
    CHAS accreditation

    arrow Back to news 18th March 2016

    The UK’s flat rooflight pioneers, Sunsquare have secured another important accolade that’s widely recognised and in-demand within the construction industry: the CHAS accreditation.

    CHAS, which stands for the Contractors’ Health and Safety Assessment Scheme, often acts as a type of pre-qualification during the tender process for work.


    Some clients will require specifiers to be CHAS accredited to allow them to even tender. It’s a common requirement within the public sector and Sunsquare’s accreditation strengthens the company’s ability to provide world-leading flat rooflights for councils, local schools and other public sector bodies.


    The overarching purpose of CHAS accreditation is to assist suppliers and buyers alike in the assessment of health and safety competence.


    Primarily the scheme accelerates the tendering process for buyers as the accreditation is an instant demonstration of a company’s health and safety standards. Similarly, the accreditation saves companies like Sunsquare a considerable amount of time completing and submitting full details of health and safety procedures adhered to during recent projects.


    Justin Seldis, managing director, Sunsquare, said: “Our CHAS accreditation demonstrates our commitment to annual assessments of our procedures to ensure our health and safety management is at the levels our clients demand each and every day.


    “It’s a sign to our customers that we are leaders in what we do and that safety with our product is guaranteed.


    “This accreditation not only demonstrates rock-solid health and safety compliance, it gives us the chance to reduce the amount of health and safety red tape necessary as part of future tender processes; simultaneously improving operational efficiency.”
