Areas of specialism and interest

Michelle enjoys being able to work alongside others to improve workplace issues and make a difference. Michelle looks to try and change the stereotypical view of the Health and Safety Professional from someone who ‘gives’ others work and problems to one who ‘works alongside’ others, helping them to overcome issues which have been raised through practical and realistic solutions.
