The Survey Association
The Survey Association, known generally as TSA, provide assurance that the member companies include well qualified professionals who can work alongside you to help your project run smoothly. TSA runs its own modular training course aimed at improving the skills and knowledge of practising surveyors. It provides free seminars to improve business skills, arranges industry discussion days twice a year to look at new and emerging technologies and issues affecting the survey industry, supports supplier events such as manufacturer roadshows and sponsors industry exhibitions. There are supplier members of TSA who will readily offer advice on specific technologies if you have particular requirements. In 2008 TSA introduced a voluntary scheme for Full and Associate members aimed at encouraging members to continue to educate and develop both their staff and their organisation.

CHAS Accreditation is ONLY available for contractors or consultants who have been assessed as CHAS Compliant within the last 9 months.
Assessing 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.
CHAS assesses applicants:
- Health and safety policy statement;
- Their organisation for health and safety;
- Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
