HSE Manager
Based at the Container Terminal in the Port of Southampton, I head up the HSE Team. I joined as a Safety Officer in 2007, completed my NEBOSH Diploma in 2012, and was subsequently promoted to the HSE Manager in January 2021. During my 18 year tenure I have seen a number of positive transitions, from a reduction of our HSE Risk Profile, to an improvement in HSE culture. I’ve had the fortunate to travel to numerous ports around the world, from Brazil to Australia and engage with a variety of wonderful people. I’m humble enough to acknowledge that I’ve taken as much from others, as I have given, and everyone I have met along the way, have helped develop me personally and professionally.
