| As HSE
Principal Inspector for Construction in the South West I manage a team of
inspectors and visiting officers regulating health and safety across the
construction industry in Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and
Herefordshire. My team are responsible for inspection and incident
investigation across the region. With proportionate enforcement via targeted
interventions we aim to increase awareness and improve health and safety
standards across the region to drive down the incidents of injury and ill
health on construction sites, large and small.
I am a graduate chemist who worked for several years in strategic management consulting to the petrochemical industry before joining HSE 15 years ago. I have been in the Construction Division of HSE for the last 7 years.
