ECS Engineering Services maintains CHAS Accreditation
Building on an exemplary track record for workplace health and safety, ECS Engineering Services has maintained its Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS) accreditation in 2018. The standard serves as a safety benchmark, assessing the quality of a business’ internal health and safety standards and processes.
The CHAS, a leader in third party accreditations, carries out electronic assessments of safety policy, procedures and records – which if up to standard, result in a business being awarded full accreditation and the opportunity to display the CHAS logo. The standard is useful for customers, as it allows greater assurance that a contractor can perform effectively in potentially risky environments and that safety procedures meet a required quality benchmark. The scheme assessor commended ECS on its ‘comprehensive, thorough and well structured’ submission, which resulted in the reaffirmation of its CHAS accreditation.
As a full electro-mechanical service provider to the water and fabrication sectors, counting a number of government institutions and authorities among its customers, ECS takes the matter of health and safety very seriously indeed. In fact, the business has held Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Awards for 10 years consecutively. With a capability that stretches from bridge installation to water control projects and fabrications, ECS matches the demanding working environments in which it operates with industry-leading safety standards.
Clark Williamson, Contracts Director at ECS added: “This accreditation is particularly important to us due to the demanding sectors we provide solutions for. Our customers can be sure that our focus on safety is of paramount importance to our business, and that this permeates into every project we undertake. I would like to say thank you to everyone at ECS who has ensured that effective health and safety procedures are properly implemented and well maintained.”
