Constructionline


Constructionline

Constructionline is a register of construction-related contractors and consultants, pre-qualified to work within the public sector (Central Government Departments, Local Authorities, Universities and places of Further Education, and Main Contractors).

Constructionline streamlines the pre-qualification stage, i.e. the first stage of the tendering process. This means that firms do not have to repeatedly fill in pre-qualification forms for each tender.

Constructionline is DTI owned and endorsed, and is a contributor to the Rethinking Construction initiative.



Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)


Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)

Each month thousands of contractors and consultants (suppliers) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the buyer’s health and safety standards.

Assessing suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.

CHAS assesses applicants' Health and safety: Policy statement; Organisation and their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to buyers and to others.



Gas Safe Register


Gas Safe Register

Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI in Great Britain and the Isle of Man. The register exists to protect you, your family, and your property from dangerous gas work. By law, anyone carrying out work on gas installations and appliances in your home must be on the Gas Safe Register.  You can find a Gas Safe registered business in your area by entering your postcode.  Every gas safe engineer carries a Gas Safe card which verifies that they are who they say they are and which also gives details of the work they are legally allowed to undertake. Always ask to see their card.

Landlords and tenants can find advice on rights and responsibilities regarding gas appliances and gas safety when renting a property.
