Health and Safety Policy
If you have over 5 employees then by law you must have a complete written Health and Safety Policy (HSP) and be actively implementing it.
We have requests from many businesses that have required a policy when taking on apprentices or for CHAS applications. But the action level is 5 employees and if you are employing more than this number, you should have an HSP in place.
The HSP is best described as a management tool to help you implement your legal obligations towards health and safety and in effect improve your working conditions.

Risk Assessment and Method Statements (RAMS)
Risk Assessment is the corner stone for any business looking to make its business safer for employees and implement its legal obligations.
Whilst it is good business and health and safety practice to carry out risk assessments, many businesses employing sub-contractor services want to see your Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS) prior to giving you the work.
We work with many small businesses helping them to develop specific RAMS that gives them the opportunity to gain work with new customers.
We also carry out specific risk assessments such as fire risk assessments and COSHH Assessments

We can help you obtain CHAS Accreditation
CHAS helps clients (buyers) and contractors (suppliers) ensure compliance across the different areas of risk management, and mitigate risks across the supply chain.
Many contractors, such as plumbers, electricians, joiners and builders join the CHAS scheme to help them get work and find new contracts.
CHAS provides an online portal system that links buyers and contractors together, with the assurance that the sub-contract work will be carried out safely and to a high standard.
It helps the sub-contractor get through the pre-qualification process when completing the headache of a tender.
KIS Health and Safety Services have a 100% track record on helping contractors achieve CHAS status.
