I have been employed in the construction industry for more than 27 years during which time I have undertaken both onshore and offshore projects primarily in the oil & gas sector. I am a highly qualified and experienced Rigger and Erector with extensive supervisory experience and a proven ability to review and enhance existing procedures to ensure efficiency and productivity. I am a fully qualified safety and health practitioner with IOSH accreditation and my main area of expertise is in the completion of risk assessments and the implementation of new working practices designed to improve safety standards and ensure statutory compliance.

I have also designed and delivered health and safety training to both managers and employees. I now wish to develop my career further, and am therefore looking for a new and suitably challenging position. I believe that my key qualities are my excellent interpersonal skills and strong communicative ability, combined with my talent for effective organisation and prioritisation. I see myself as a highly dedicated and strongly driven individual.
