The Company is an accredited member of the Safe Contractor and CHAS schemes.
To gain accreditation to these schemes the company worked through a process which ensures that our health and safety paperwork is up to date and meets legal industry requirements.
The SafeContractor scheme is an SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) approved health and safety scheme for contractors who want to show they’re taking responsibility for their legal health and safety requirements.
CHAS is the founder member of the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Competence Forum – a body committed to promoting a common standard for the assessment of supply chain health and safety compliance and reducing duplication in health and safety prequalification. SSIP enjoys the support of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
Tyre Recovery Association
We are active members of the Tyre Recovery Association which was formed in July 2004, the TRA represents the UK’s tyre recovery sector, which processes over 40 million used tyres every year. A key role is to represent and promote good practice within the tyre recovery sector and to provide an externally audited, legally compliant tyre collection and recovery service which provides protection and peace of mind for all those who generate waste tyres across the UK. A cornerstone of the body is its support for the Tyre Industry Federation’s Responsible Recycler Scheme. All TRA members are fully accredited by the scheme, which guarantees that all tyres collected, recycled or reprocessed by them are disposed of or reused in an environmentally friendly manner or best practice methods.
