CHAS accredited Tree Surgeon: What does it mean?

CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK.

Being CHAS registered is highly recognised with many organisations and local authorities insisting that companies are CHAS registered.

It is a key component before considering tree surgeons for tree services contracts.

For the domestic customer, our accreditation within CHAS (Contractor’s Health and Safety Scheme) is simply another level of assurance.

It confirms you are employing a safe and competent contractor for your tree surgery works, in Manchester and the surrounding areas. You can’t be too careful with your trees!

Our Tree Surgeon Services in the Manchester area are accredited within CHAS.

Myers Tree Care is accredited within the Contractors Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS).

This demonstrates compliance with sound management of current basic health and safety legislation.

CHAS, for us, is more than compliance.

Our Cheshire based tree surgeons put an emphasis on the safety of anyone impacted with the work we undertake.

The process of needing to renew our CHAS accreditation annually gives us an important task to think about daily:

  • Encourages us to prioritise health and safety using the latest in arborist techniques and safety equipment.
  • Health and safety talks are arranged regularly to ensure safe practices are undertaken and learned from each member of our team.
  • Structures our work to ensure what, how and when we do tree care services are planned and executed safely and efficiently

This included the standards that every job undertakes rigorous risk assessment.

Furthermore, our equipment and machinery are expertly inspected periodically and we use LOLER inspectors for our climbing equipment.

Consequently, by following these procedures we can reduce the risk of harm to our staff and the public.

How does this benefit our customers?

Having our tree surgeons follow these procedures gives our customers peace of mind.

Knowing our company adopts safe practices and demonstrate expert-level arborist skills means our work is highly regarded.

Compare us to other tree surgeons who do not invest in being correctly insured, investing in training or high-quality equipment – who is the logical choice for the job?

Using an under-qualified or inexperienced tree surgeon damages to the reputation of the arborist trade.

On the flip side, trusted tree surgeons such as Myers Tree Care can demonstrate a clear difference between the right and wrong way of working.

In the end, it’s the customer’s choice of the level of professionality they choose.
