Here at Creative Play we constantly strive to improve our business, to do this we have been working towards gaining different awards and accreditations. We are proud to publicise that we have accreditations from CHAS and ISO 9001, plus we are members of the API and RoSPA.
Each of these accreditations have their benefits and many assessments are completed before being awarded. If you’re unsure of what each of them represent, we have given a brief breakdown to give you an understanding of what we have been working towards.

ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely recognized Quality Management System (QMS). It belongs to the ISO 9000 family of quality management system standards (along with ISO 9004), and helps organizations to meet the expectations and needs of their customers, amongst other benefits.
An ISO 9001 quality management system will help you to continually monitor and manage quality across all operations, and outlines ways to achieve, as well as benchmark, consistent performance and service. Internationally, it is the quality system of choice!
CHAS is established as the market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK. It is available to suppliers (those who provide goods and services) and to organisations (buyers) looking for suitably competent suppliers.
CHAS isn’t just for construction companies, it assesses health and safety for all types of suppliers, from care services to demolition contractors, designers and consultants. The aim of the scheme is to save time and resources by avoiding unnecessary duplication in the first stage of competence assessment; the CDM Core criteria.
ROSPA was originally created after an alarming increase in traffic accidents due to restricted street lighting which had been necessitated by the War conditions in 1916. They are the UK leading safety charity and have been at the heart is accident prevention for almost 100 years. ROSPA promote safety and prevention of accidents.
Their aim is to provide efficiency savings to public and private sector buyers and the construction industry as a whole by streamlining procurement procedures and improving the supply chain management processes by reducing risk, creating cost efficiencies and helping buyers engage with new suppliers, including SMEs and local companies.
