CHAS Accreditation.

Posted 28/02/13

CHAS-CertificateWe are pleased to announce that A1 Blinds are now CHAS accredited (Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme). CHAS certificate

Each month thousands of contractors and suppliers (such as A1 Blinds) apply for work with public and private sector organisations (buyers). To win work, they must meet the buyer’s health and safety standards.

Assessing a suppliers health and safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers.

The CHAS scheme assesses our:

Health and safety policy statement;
Our organisation for health and safety;
Our specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.

Child Safety Campaign.

Posted 12/02/13

Safety-Devices_examples_BBSA1 Blinds are fully committed to help eliminate risks associated with harzardous looped operating cords, chains and tapes used on window blinds.

Child Safety is paramount here at A1 Blinds. Window blind cords and chains must be kept out of reach of babies and small children and there are many solutions for new and existing blinds. Here is what you should do now if you have babies or young children living in your house or if babies or young children may visit:

Examine every blind in your home. If they have a looped control chain or cord and do not have a safety device fitted then you can easily install one of the many devices available. Ask our excellently trained staff at A1 Blinds, we will be happy to assist you.

• Ensure that all operating blind cords and chains cannot be reached by children.

• When buying a new blind always look for one that does not contain cords, has concealed cords or has an in-built safety device.

• Move cots, beds and any furniture away from windows and blinds – remember children love to climb.
