Contractor Safety Scheme Announces Senior Appointment
UK Safety Scheme In Procurement (SSIP) CHAS has appointed Saba Khan as Head of Risk.
Khan, who was previously appointed as Head of Operations and Quality, joined CHAS in March 2020 when she assumed responsibility for all operations, including customer services, assessment verification, standards and quality. Over a nine-month period, she developed and deployed verification and assessment processes in line with PAS 91 (publicly available specification) and the Common Assessment Standard.
