I am a qualified and experienced health and safety professional, with over 15 years’ experience. I have worked with a diverse range of clients, assisting them to establish and continually improve health and safety practices. I was an ACC Approved Auditor for the Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP) and I am also a registered health and safety auditor with the International Register of Certified Auditors (IRCA), auditing to the ISO45001 Standard.
I have achieved Graduate Level with the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management (NZISM) and IOSH and am currently working to achieve Chartered level. In addition to health and safety qualifications, I have a BSc (Hons) geology and have experience working as an environmental consultant.
I place a strong focus on consultation, communication and engagement to help create health and safety systems that work for everyone, from executives to workers on the ground. I take satisfaction in ensuring the systems developed are practical and meet audit requirements.
While I have worked predominantly with small to medium sized businesses, more recently, I have been working as the Health, Safety and Sustainability Manager at the Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec) and Whitireia, overseeing the health and safety of approximately 800 staff and 6000 students.
I am Wellington based, but work nationwide.
