Michelle Hoddle manages the Health and Safety requirements of 30 employed members of staff and over 100 sub-contractors that come and go within Contour Roofing. The management of health and safety training of such a large workforce is extremely challenging, including all CSCS cards for experienced workers; SSSTS courses for working foreman; SMSTS for all contract managers; short courses including traffic marshalling, slips, trips and falls, working at height, manual handling, abrasive wheels, first aid, nail gun training, RPE face fit tests, PASMA, asbestos awareness fire marshal, harness training, forklift training, slinger/signaller and banksman and Michelle is always looking for new courses and opportunities to improve the Contour Roofing’s team knowledge and understanding of health and safety issues that can affect them during the working day.

Michelle organised all members of staff to sit and be accredited with First Aid ‘Mental Health Awareness’ Training, which has been a passion for Michelle and was subsequently nominated and shortlisted for the ‘Mates in Mind’ Impact Awards in recognition of her work, where she was highly commended with the individual champion award.

Michelle also organised first aid training for the use of a defibrillator, the following day Michelle ordered a defibrillator for the Contour Roofing office, which has been received and registered in the community.

The commitment and enthusiasm of Michelle’s hard work has not gone unnoticed by Managing Director Jonathan Woods who nominated Michelle for the NFRC Individual Health and Safety Award, who stated, “It’s no coincidence that our safety record has improved since Michelle has been with Contour Roofing.
