chas logo

Award-winning smoke ventilation contractor, FDS Contracting (FDS), is proud to announce that it has successfully secured a nationally recognised health and safety certification for another year.

The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) accreditation represents FDS’ dedication to providing the highest standards of health and safety both in the workplace and on site.

In order to maintain and build upon this achievement, FDS holds frequent internal and external site audits, as well as providing full training and revisions for its staff subject to changes to Health and Safety law, ensuring continuing compliance.

FDS also works with a specialist safety consultancy, which provides additional and professional support for management and installation staff as and when required.

Speaking on the news, Nick Waterfield, Managing Director at FDS Contracting said: “In any workplace, health and safety is a key priority, and there are certainly more factors to consider when undertaking site work.

“With that in mind we have put stringent policies in place in order to safeguard our employees, a practice which has not seen any reportable accidents take place in more than six years. Receiving CHAS certification for another year is a great endorsement of our efforts in this area, and FDS will continue to develop this on a day-to-day basis.”
