Kings Lynn based Chalcroft secures eighth RoSPA Gold Medal for health and safety best practice


FSDF member Chalcroft Construction, which has offices at Campbell’s Business Park in Lynn, has earned a prestigious gold award for the eighth consecutive year.

The award has been given 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.

The company, which also has offices in Birmingham and Pershore, will be presented with the award during a ceremony at Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel tomorrow, July 5.

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 (Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety) 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.
