Highly-respected Todd Hallam, Chalcroft Construction's QEHS Director, has shown how commitment to developing and maintaining safety policies is a winning recipe for success.
Todd scooped the title of Health and Safety Champion 2018 at the recent inaugural British Frozen Foods Federation People Awards, held at a prestigious ceremony in Birmingham.
Speaking after the event, Todd said: "It was certainly a surprise. I am very pleased and proud for the company, as it really is a collective effort, it's not just me who won the award."
The BFFF awards were aimed at celebrating the unsung heroes within the frozen food industry.
The ceremony took place at the end of a busy day in Birmingham which saw the BFFF host a hugely-informative business conference, and a health and safety seminar (which was sponsored by Chalcroft and at which Todd made a presentation).
One of Todd's current projects is working with the BFFF, fire and rescue services and insurance companies to look at how best to manage the maintenance of insitu composite insulated panels.
The panels are a pre-fabricated building product that are commonly used for walls and ceilings in various internal building applications such as cold storage, clean rooms, warehousing, and food factories, as well as for external cladding.
Chalcroft is working to provide an industry guidance document that will assist building owners and occupiers by providing advice and solutions to managing insitu composite insulated panels.
