Special Branch Tree Services becomes a CHAS approved contractor

By displaying our new CHAS accreditation, it shows that we here at Special Branch Tree Services, are taking our health, safety and wellbeing obligations seriously.

CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) was created by experienced health and safety professionals in 1997 to improve health and safety standards across the UK.

In partnership with the Association of London Government (ALG), CHAS was a key developer of the core criteria held in the Approved Code of Practice which supported the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (now recognised as CDM 2015) and is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). As one of the founders of third party accreditation we are not only a trusted advisor on health and safety compliance, we are an authority. We set industry bench marks, provide assurance and reassurance, and offer best-in-class services that are easy to use and cost effective.

This health and safety legislation was created to achieve the following aims:

  • To simplify health and safety contractor assessment by standardising requirements.
  •  To allow companies to avoid undergoing health and safety assessments for every job.

We continue to strive forward, and this new accreditations shows how seriously we take all aspects of our business, and our service to you.
