CHAS launches digital wallet to track staff accreditation
The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) has launched a workforce identification and credentials management service called CHAS People.
Based around the concept of a digital wallet, CHAS People allows anyone responsible for workforce compliance to be confident that their workforce is legitimate and qualified – reducing risk while saving time and money.
With a growing emphasis in construction on proving qualifications and accreditation, the ability to keep track of individual’s training and certification is increasingly important to anyone managing sites or working on them. CHAS managing director Ian McKinnon comments: “As supply chain risk management standards become stricter, ensuring clear visibility of worker ID and credentials can be a challenge.”
To use CHAS People employers simply purchase the required number of CHAS People digital wallets via the existing CHAS portal which enables them to invite employees to upload their ID and relevant work related documentation. CHAS then verifies the ID documents using a government confirmed 12 point biometric check and tamper detection technology and a CHAS People digital wallet is issued.
CHAS works in partnership with leading industry bodies and independent organisations to provide clients and contractors alike with a single solution for accreditation, risk assessment, supply chain management and industry training.
