I am the Safety & Security Leader within IKEA with the main responsibility for H&S. I have been with IKEA for 20 years in a variety of roles with the last 6 in the Risk & Compliance sector. My role is to review our H&S culture, implement a H&S Management System and continually review our position utilising proven and finding new solutions to make our environment as safe as possible within the UK and IE. I believe that technology contributes to an effective safety culture as the H&S sector is data rich and at times knowledge poor regarding the root cause. Technology helps Safety Professionals to navigate through the information to reduce the near miss exposure.
My introduction to health and safety was an inspector with the Health & Safety Executive, covering a range of industrial sectors in my time with them. Subsequently, I have worked as a health and safety professional in the local authority sector and, more recently, the healthcare sector. Currently, I work for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. I have been a chartered member of IOSH for over 20 years.
As Head of Health and Safety for HFT (an £80 million turnover charity supporting people with learning disabilities), I have a national remit to drive safety performance within the organisation and ultimately, keep people safe and well at work. I’m passionate about my role and take immense pride in keeping the safety and wellbeing of our people at the heart of what we do.
I have over 25+ years of experience in Train Maintaining, Production Management and Depot Operations. I am now an Occupational Safety Support Manager learning new skills and offering advice and support to ensure the company meets existing and new Health, Safety and Environmental challenges.
As well as being CTO for Riskex, I am also a qualified Health and Safety Professional. This expertise allows me to fully understand HSE compliance requirements in detail, as well as everyday challenges faced by the Health & Safety profession.
As the founding architect of Riskex’s Health and Safety SaaS platform AssessNET, I’m immensely proud of how we continually innovate to address emerging Risks and find new ways to help keep people healthy and safe at work.
