Chili sauce as an alternate...if it's what you have on hand and like...yes.
If you want to get closer to Worcestershire sauce, mix a little sour (lemon juice or vinegar), a little sweet (pomegranate molasses, cranberry juice or sugar), a little fishy (anchovy paste or fish sauce).

You CAN substitute chili sauce, but the flavor of the finished dish will be nothing like what the author of the dish intended.
It basically tells you when it needs to be replaced.
