We are currently in the process of carrying out reviews with our clients based on PAS91.
PAs91 is a document published by the government covering how construction contractors should be assessed when tendering for public sector contracts. PAS stands for “Publicly Accessible Specification”.
PAS91 covers many subjects including equality and diversity, financial, company status, environmental, and importantly Health and Safety.
PAS91 is used by the Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) as the basis for their health and safety assessment of contractors. This means that CHAS, SMAS, Safe Contractor etc all assess clients to PAS91.
With PAS91 now being the standard for H&S assessment, we at CTC South West Limited have created our own appraisal questionnaire that we complete with clients in order to see how well they are doing and what aspects need more work.
We are doing this as part of our yearly review for clients who have signed up to or H&S appointed advisors service. The process identifies where companies are doing well, as well as allowing us to draw up an action plan for the coming year to make improvements where required.
The process also gathers evidence relating to each question – the same evidence that is required by SSIP assessments, so if the client is asked to provide SSIP membership for a contract over the coming year, all that needs to be done is the application form. Even this becomes easier since all the information has already been gathered on our PAS91 review.
