CHAS announces new RAMS software powered by HandsHQ


CHAS, the supply chain risk management expert, has announced the launch of a new software product, CHAS RAMS.

CHAS RAMS, powered by HandsHQ, will provide CHAS contractors with a web-based risk assessment and method statement (RAMS) solution.

HandsHQ is the most trusted risk assessment platform for high-risk work, enabling users to create better RAMS in less time, anywhere and on any device, without the need for training or technical expertise.

The cloud-based platform offers a broad library of risk and COSHH assessments covering all specialist contractor activities including electrical, plumbing, HVAC and more. In a matter of minutes, users can create customised risk assessments, tailored to each project.

This new partnership reflects CHAS’ ambitious plans for growth and supports their strategic objective of improving standards of safety in the workplace. By offering customers a platform to create quick and easy project-specific RAMS, CHAS can provide even more innovative risk management support, while helping businesses meet the ever-increasing demand to demonstrate stringent quality, safety and environmental standards.

Ian McKinnon, CHAS Managing Director, comments: “This exclusive arrangement with HandsHQ is the perfect addition to our existing suite of products, providing our customers with a straight-forward process for producing high-quality RAMS. We are also working towards enabling contractors to create and submit RAMS during the accreditation application or renewal process, further simplifying the CHAS accreditation experience.”

Jamie Carruthers, CEO at HandsHQ, says: “We’re thrilled to be working with CHAS to power their new CHAS RAMS offering. We’re excited to help their fast growing member base create a safer work environment with our easy-to-use software which does away with the hassle of inconsistent Word documents.”
