I founded Samson Safety Solutions in 2015 and since then have been delivering health and safety solutions to a variety of small to medium sized businesses including, pest control, horticultural & fencing contractors, plasterers, painters, boat building, manufacturing and construction sectors.
In my past life I’ve worked for Regional Council, Animal Health Board and Operational Solutions for Primary Industries (OSPRI) as a field supervisor, these organisations provided me with foundational health and safety training and experience. Initially my practice was founded on supporting pest control contractors transitioning to more general practice and more recently returning to environment-based organisations. I really enjoy working with people from diverse ethnicities and backgrounds and I’m currently working with Manaaki Kaimai Mamaku Trust and MPI’s Wallaby Management Programme providing ongoing H & S support to multiple entities.
In recent years I've completed short term contracts with Whakatane Mill, kiwifruit packhouses, stevedoring businesses and local councils, I also have many clients I continually work alongside to improve health & safety engagement and culture.
I’m an NZISM accredited OSH “Professional” and regularly attend branch meetings. I’m constantly looking to up-skill my professional development. To date I’ve completed the NEBOSH General Certificate, ICAM Health & Safety Systems, Health & Safety Rep training, several OSH papers with Massey University and recently attained a Graduate Diploma in Professional Practice - OSH.
Wherever possible, I look for opportunities to introduce and help facilitate "Safety Differently" principles into businesses that are open and committed to empowering their frontline teams. I believe this philosophy provides opportunities for businesses to adopt positive new ways to manage safety and health.
I volunteer for Coastguard NZ, as a Unit Safety Officer and CRV Skipper. I’m happily married and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, I’m strongly connected with nature & enjoy bush-walks and playing on/under the ocean.
