BCSA

BCSA is the national organisation for the steel construction industry. There are three categories of membership:

Steelwork Contractor Members undertake the design, fabrication and erection of steelwork for all forms of construction in building and civil engineering.

Industry Members are those principal companies involved in the direct supply to all or some Members of components, materials or products.

Corporate Members are clients, main contractors, professional offices etc which support the development of national specifications, certification, fabrication and erection techniques, overall industry efficiency and good practice.

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:

  1. Health and safety policy statement;
  2. Their organisation for health and safety;
  3. Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
Safe Contractors APPROVED

Safecontractor was initially developed as a bespoke project for a Property Management client, who wished to outsource the annual vetting of contractors on its approved list. Interest shown by other similar clients identified the potential for a standardised system that could be offered to the whole of the company’s client base.

In 1999, SupplyLine was born. After further development the product was expanded to provide web based access to its clients, and was re-branded as Safecontractor in 2003.

Steady growth and the adoption of the system by some major brand names such as Kellogg, Debenhams Retail Plc, Home Retail Group and General Motors UK, saw entry into new client markets and further growth in contractor members.

Safecontractor is part of the Alcumus Group, the market-leading provider of technology-enabled compliance risk management, certification and verification services.

Alcumus employs circa 700 people and supports more than 30,000 clients in the UK and internationally with their Testing, Inspection & Certification (TIC) and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) strategies.
