FPS achieve CHAS and SMAS Health & Safety Accreditations - Flood Protection Solutions

Posted 07. 07. 2021

At Flood Protection Solutions Ltd, Health & Safety is integral to everything we do. This is not just in relation to our business practices, but also in ensuring the safety and compliance of our work; whether through CDM (Construction Design & Management), risk, or mitigation measures.

We are delighted that we have been awarded both CHAS and SMAS accreditations for our Health & Safety.

CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) is a type of accreditation that proves a business’s health and safety processes meet excellent standards.

SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Services) is a nationally recognised Health & Safety accreditation used to demonstrate a business’ Health & Safety standards.


Our passion is in raising awareness of flood risk, and subsequently reducing it. Health and Safety standards are upheld and exceeded throughout our work, ensuring optimal outputs for all involved.

Our adherence to guidance and Health & Safety rules will continue through into the options development phase of works, such as including height limitations on barriers, unless a Structural Engineer deems higher barriers are safe.

Sole UK distributors of the Water Gate Barrier

The Water-Gate barrier from Megasecur is used in 36 countries around the world. As the sole UK distributor of this flood barrier, we distribute the product across the entire country. The Water-Gate barrier is highly innovative and easily deployed, offering one of the fastest deployment of water
barriers available. Access to emergency vehicles and other vehicles is not compromised as the barrier can be driven over.

The Water-Gate can be shaped around corners and on uneven surfaces, offering flexible protection, and can be joined to create any length. The barrier can be supplied in crates to make deployment of long lengths extremely rapid.
It is cost effective, comparing particularly well with sandbags, especially as it is reusable.

The material used is recyclable and the Water-Gate is reusable making it extremely environmentally friendly.
The barrier is resistant to a long list of chemicals and has been independently tested. It is widely used in pollution control.
