Liz Brathwaite CMIOSH - Secretary

Liz Brathwaite B&W.jpgI have over twenty five years’ experience working in the field of health and safety and environmental management, both as a local authority enforcement officer and as a safety practitioner. I am currently employed by Skanska and work within the Civil Engineering Operating Unit overseeing all Energy Sector and Highways Sector major projects across the UK. My current portfolio includes London Power Tunnels, Humber Feeder 9 Gas Main Replacement, Chelsea / Battersea Gas Main Replacement (all for National Grid) and the A14 new road construction (for Highways England).

I take a proactive approach to my work, I make effective decisions and am a highly committed individual always striving to improve health and safety management and influence safety behaviour in a positive way.

I have a strong construction background as well as experience in many other connected areas including electrical safety, working at height, temporary works, transport safety, small scale manufacturing, environmental management and occupational health issues.

I have been an active member on the Bristol & West IOSH Branch Committee for several years and I also sit as a Panel Member on the IOSH Peer Review Interview Panels. I feel it is important to work with the Institution giving something constructive back to the profession and encouraging others to progress through their careers towards Chartered membership and beyond.
