Northern Health and Safety Manager.
In charge of the Health & Safety of the workers at the northern part of the project.
I started in the industry in the UK in the 1970s worked as a Site Manager before working with the military in Antarctica, Falkland Islands, Ascension Island and Hong Kong. I have worked in Health and Safety in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands for the past 11 years.
When everybody goes home without getting hurt at work.
When we have an accident on the worksite.
I am looking at how we can improve the way we do things to make a potentially dangerous workplace a safer one.
The jobs that require a lot of planning are always satisfying when they are finished without problems. They are all part of the overall job, that when finished, will be a job well done.
I once had to go to a remote mountain to issue a permit for some works. I flew in on a helicopter the day before Christmas Eve for a two hour visit. The weather conditions changed and I was stuck there for four days with no fresh food, no TV or radio and worst of all no toilet. ‘Merry Christmas’ - Learning don’t rely on Mother Nature she is always unpredictable.
Travel, cars and trying to fix them up, skiing, movies.
