MEET THE TEAM
Founder and Director
I started CHASE Consulting as I had a passion for Health and Safety and ensuring that it had real value rather than being a box ticking exercise. I could see how I could make a difference and ultimately influence others and show how making health and safety a priority meant that everyone was a winner.
My exposure to many diverse projects has given me invaluable experience in health & safety and environmental consultancy across many market sectors for both public and private enterprises. These include construction, medical, mining, environmental and commercial. Acting as a CDM Coordinator for high level clients, I have flexibility and exceptional expertise in all forms of health, safety and environmental management with the ability to direct strategic planning of organisational policy and procedures. I have specialist knowledge on built environmental issues and have a personal interest in the environmental implications of construction projects as well as the promotion of the Construction Design & Management Regulations (CDM).
I am a Chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH) and a Certified Member of the APS (CMaPS), and have been a consultant in the construction industry for over 15 years. I bring a fresh approach to Health & Safety and am a team player who enjoys interacting with the various project stakeholders. I bring a positive contribution to discussions and believe in encouraging practical CDM solutions both for design and construction phases over bureaucratic tick box exercises. The CHASE team are Client focused and share core personal values which motivates me to deliver a quality service.
Over numerous projects including new build and refurbishment schemes, I have developed skills, knowledge and experience by working closely with clients to help them understand and adhere to the requirements of the CDM Regulations.
With extensive experience in the education, science & research sectors, I have developed skills working to tight budgets and programmes whilst impressing on the Health & Safety requirements of buildability, usability and maintainability aspects of design.
Our staff are our most important asset and it is my job to ensure that we have clear communication between us. That we work together as a team to enable everyone to achieve, thus providing the best service for our Clients.
I have a good understanding of running a business, dealing with people, fundraising, communication and managing budgets, all of which are essential skills I use on a day to day basis as the CHASE Consulting Administrator and Wellbeing Director.
I manage all of the IT issue that arise and recently completed a digital transformation moving the company from google to microsoft.
In addition I manage the website and social media posts for the company.
Senior Health and Safety Consultant
I have been a Health & Safety Professional since 1999 and have worked in industry sectors including Recruitment, Public Sector, Highways, The Charity Sector, Construction & Student Accommodation.
Previously I worked as an HS&E Advisor for national construction principal contractors. I advised teams on achieving H&S Compliance from pre-construction through to post completion. I have also secured ISO 9001, 18001 and 45001 for a regional contractor.
I like being part of a proactive, passionate and driven team as these are also some of my attributes. I am approachable, fair and always ready to help find a solution where a safe approach is required but time, resource and budget are also key priorities for consideration. It’s all about the balance.
Effective Health & Safety Management isn’t just about enforcement and Compliance. Engaging with all stakeholders, at all levels and fostering collaborative relationships is key to success.
When done well, Safety becomes a seamless part of everyone’s working life, not just that of the Safety Advisor or Consultant.
Health and Safety Consultant
With 20+ years of experience in the construction industry, I have had the unique opportunity to manage all aspects of construction builds, specifically Health & Safety, logistics, materials delivery and resource. I have excellent professional behaviours with a dynamic, flexible and collaborative approach, creating great customer service and results driven business benefits.
With a proven ability to improve Health and safety within the challenging sector of construction, it is a great opportunity to be working for CHASE Consulting, and I look forward to working with this diligent team in creating a safer more productive work environment.
Senior Health and Safety Consultant
I'm an experienced EHS Consultant, PD and CDM Advisor with a successful track record in CDM compliance and providing technical environmental, health and safety support to clients in the preparation and training of clear and robust procedures and documentation.
I have over 42 years’ experience in the construction industry, starting out as a structural engineer, before moving into construction project management and then safety.
I have high standards for the projects I support. For me, a small project is as important as a large one, it involves design, people to build it and people to operate and maintain it. It is my belief that all work undertaken in construction or operational activities should be run and managed in a safe way, and any person involved has the right to work in a safe way.
I am a Certified Member of the APS (CMaPS), Technical Member of IOSH and hold the NEBOSH General Certificate.
Following five years military service in the Royal Marines Commandos I then completed twenty seven years as a fire officer working in fire service operations and in fire safety enforcement. I also have extensive experience of working as a fire safety consultant in the private sector and I have run my own successful consultancy on a part-time basis for over ten years concurrent with my fire service career.
I am a specialist with regard to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO) and in the process of fire risk assessment to achieve compliance with the FSO to ensure an adequate level of fire safety in premises.
I retired from the Fire Service in February 2015 and run my consultancy. This allows me to continue with my professional development in fire safety matters. I have been a registered, life safety, fire risk assessor with the Institution of Fire Engineers since 2008 and since 2015 I have been a member of the national review and selection panel for applicants onto the IFE register.
My background is as a qualified Product Designer and for over 20 years I was a member of the Institute of Engineering Designers.
After rising to the position of Computer Aided Design Manager in 2004, I made a vocational transition into the new Hyder Asbestos department where I was a participating member in achieving UKAS survey accreditation for Hyder Consulting Ltd.
