Profile

As a Chartered Safety Practitioner, and a Chartered Member of the Institute of Logistics & Transport, I have considerable experience of managing health and safety at a senior level, primarily  within the transport, warehousing, logistics and retail sectors.  My experiences to-date equip me with extensive and diverse credentials that support in-depth appreciation of operational requirements, and thus the foundations for how best to apply Health and Safety in  the workplace.  I am passionate about promoting a simple and sensible approach to health and safety, stripping back on red tape, bureaucracy, and out of date health and safety rhetoric that is so ingrained into our industry in general.   My primary focus is geared around providing new, better ways of engagement and developing leading edge initiatives and solutions.  I believe that working in the Health and Safety industry is a journey without destination... there is always more to do, always more to go at!
