Chalcroft, a leading specialist construction contractor which has a base in Lynn, has achieved a prestigious award for its safety record for the sixth consecutive year.
The business has once again been awarded the RoSPA Gold Medal for Health and Safety during this, the scheme’s 60th year.
This internationally-recognised accolade rewards organisations in all sectors that have demonstrated a clear commitment to the prevention of accidents and ill health.
The scheme is open to businesses and organisations of all sizes and types. Judges take into account everything from workforce engagement and safe practices at ground level, through to leadership principles.
Commenting on this milestone achievement, Chalcroft’s Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety director Todd Hallam said: “Our robust health and safety policies and procedures are continually reviewed and refined to ensure we exceed the standards set by relevant legislation, and this culture of safety is embedded in all levels of the company. To receive independent verification of our achievements from RoSPA is extremely gratifying and everyone involved should be very proud.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards and Events, said: “To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to. We offer them our congratulations.
“This year was doubly special for our winners as their achievements were recognised as the RoSPA Awards celebrated its diamond anniversary, which is a ringing endorsement of the thousands of businesses and organisations that have committed to continuous improvement in accident and ill-health prevention.”
