In order to demonstrate its commitment to maintaining the highest possible standards in health, safety and environmental practices, Levolux has become accredited under the following national schemes.
Achilles BuildingConfidence Scheme
Achilles has developed BuildingConfidence – a supplier pre-qualification and accreditation service for the UK construction industry.
BuildingConfidence accreditation is established as the premier standard for recognising supplier excellence within the industry. Major contractors use the service to evaluate their supply chains, drive up performance and forge longer lasting relationships with key suppliers.
Levolux is proud to have achieved a Level 5 accreditation under the Achilles Building Confidence scheme, with a 5 star rating. It has been fully accredited under the scheme since its introduction in 2007.
BuildingConfidence provides benefits to buyers and suppliers by using:
Web-based technologies to increase operational efficiencies and reduce the costs associated with pre-qualification for clients, major contractors and their suppliers On-site audits with industry leading auditors to help suppliers measure their own performance and share this data with their clients and major contractors.
Construction Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)
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.
Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers. Both CHAS and Constructionline schemes are linked, where CHAS focuses on the health and safety element of pre-qualification, Constructionline focuses on other areas including financial standing and technical references.
CHAS assesses applicants:
Health and safety policy statement;
Their organisation for health and safety;
Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
