Chalcroft Construction has been awarded a prestigious accolade in recognition of its practices and achievements in helping maintain high standards of health and safety.
The company has achieved a Gold Medal in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards, the longest-running industry awards scheme in the UK. This is the eighth consecutive RoSPA Gold Medal for Chalcroft.
With offices in King’s Lynn, Birmingham and Pershore, the company will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel on Thursday, 5 July 2018.
The RoSPA Awards scheme, which receives entries from organisations around the world, recognises achievement in health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Todd Hallam, Chalcroft’s QEHS Director, said: “Health and safety is paramount in the way Chalcroft operates. With more than 30,000 people passing through our sites each year, we have to get it right. This Gold Award is testament to the whole company and its approach to keeping people safe.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year, and allow organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, President’s Awards, Orders of Distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.
Headline sponsor of the RoSPA Awards 2018 is NEBOSH – the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health – for the 13th consecutive year.
