I have developed a passion for health and safety since my early twenties. What drew me to this profession is the ability to make a lasting difference in this world.
Showing business leaders to commit to resource health and safety effectively can positively influence bottom-line profits.
An engaged, motivated, valued, and competent workforce drives incidents down and improves workplace culture.
Empowering management and health and safety professionals to care about their people, understand their legal obligations, and view health and safety as more than just another department or division.
By walking the talk, being involved at the work floor level, and making health and safety management systems simple and understandable for all - not just management.
What I love to do:
⭕️ Empower Health and Safety professionals to make a difference in their organisations through coaching.
⭕️ Work at board level and management to add value at strategic levels.
⭕️ Implement and audit management systems to provide opportunities for continual improvement.
⭕️ Develop career paths through conducting Health and Safety training.

I am also a contractor auditor and tutor for various certification bodies for the ISO9001, 14001, 45001 and AS/ANZ4801 standards.
