Industry Accreditations

At Swirlforce, we are strongly committed to health and safety. The wellbeing of both our clients and our workforce is paramount, and we ensure that our processes in each and every environment we work in adhere to all relevant health and safety legislation.

Health and safety is part of our company culture, so training and assessment start from day one of an employee joining our team, and continues throughout their time with us. This way, we are confident that our team has the necessary knowledge and skills to implement measures that reduce risk to the lowest level possible, no matter which painting and decorating service we are delivering. 

To demonstrate our commitment to health and safety, Swirlforce has achieved several industry accreditations: 

Our current accreditations and partnerships


CHAS Elite Memer: The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme

Swirlforce Ltd is a CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) Elite Member.

CHAS-accredited suppliers are assessed every year to ensure they are operating to the highest health and safety standards. The accreditation also acts as a pre-qualification for tender purposes and is often a compulsory element for acceptance, especially for public organisations. CHAS is a sign of confidence and saves clients time carrying out their own health and safety competence checks.

Constructionline Gold Member


Swirlforce is a Constructionline Gold Member. With enhanced pre-qualification and Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) assessments, a company can be awarded a ‘Deemed to Satisfy’ SSIP certificate for health and safety. Members are also put through numerous additional checks such as environmental management, quality management and equal opportunities, which are required for projects within the public sector. Constructionline membership acts as assurance to buyers when they are looking for a supplier.



Swirlforce Ltd has been part of the SafeContractor scheme for several years. The SafeContractor scheme is a SSIP-approved health and safety assessment scheme for contractors who want to demonstrate that they’re taking responsibility for their legal health and safety requirements.
