Background

My introduction to the field of safety occurred during many years working at Coca Cola Amatil (CAA (1,100 staff and multiple locations across NZ)). Coca Cola has large manufacturing facilities, warehousing, technical divisions, laboratories and administration. CCA has always had an emphasis on excellence being world class, reflecting in ISO Quality & Environmental  and OSHA plus 4801 for safety.  I was involved in a lot of auditing, compliance, managing contractors, building maintenance program, plant upgrades etc.  Our staff used Vault safety software which I rolled out across the South Island. 

On leaving Coca Cola 7 years ago, I committed to doing further studies and joined OHS Consultants where I still work today. Two years ago I completed post graduate safety studies with a focus on ISO 45001, so I can internationally assist companies successfully transition to ISO 45001 safety management systems and when necessary achieve JAS-ANZ certification.   This has been very exciting work and our OHS Consultants are doing a great job across New Zealand helping companies implement ISO OH&S management systems.  We also partner with SiteDocs - a highly developed software platform which includes voice recognition capability for field work excellence and efficiency.

At OHS Consultants we can work remotely utilising Zoom calls (when requested), so location is not an issue.  We can also use the various skillsets within our team so the client gets the best benefit(s).
