Legionella Control Association
The Legionella Control Association ensures that contractors dealing with water systems, where Legionella is a risk, are competent specialists. The Code of Conduct for Service Providers has been put together by a working party drawn from the British Association for Chemical Specialities and the Water Management Society in close consultation with the Health and Safety Executive. It is referred to in the HSE document L8 “Legionnaires’ Disease, The control of Legionella bacteria in water systems: Approved Code of Practice and Guidance”
This is a quality management system. Each accredited organisation is required to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet customers needs and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. It also aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme
CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is a non-commercial scheme available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) looking for suitably competent suppliers. 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.
Safe Contractor Approved
Registered members with the SAFE Contractor scheme include clients and contractors from a wide range of professional disciplines working within a number of industry sectors. With its increasing membership and growing profile in the UK, the SAFE Contractor scheme is now used by many large organisations as a way of obtaining competent contractors.
