Prior to my current role, I was employed in the offshore oil industry during which time I developed and maintained the company’s integrated competency management system. This role included the development of training courses relevant to multiple engineering roles, the development of training procedures, the sourcing of outside training to cover shortfalls, and the development of skills tests to be monitored on a regular basis.
My role also included liaison with and support of the Health and Safety Manager (who was regularly offshore), support of the QA Department by undertaking internal audits, and liaison with the local College supporting the company’s apprenticeship programme.
I am a Technician Member of IOSH and have a good working knowledge of current health and safety regulations, and the training requirements to ensure suitable programs are developed. Throughout my career I have conducted accident and incident investigations with a view to reporting findings to management and clients, and my approach has always been to promote a safe workplace by adequate training and safe practices as much as possible.
I have developed and delivered training across a wide-range of engineering industries, including the rail sector. Having recently been employed by an international private company and a local college, I have seen the importance of investing in the development and maintenance of skills within an organisation, and the difficulties which may result if there are gaps in the skills base. In my spare time I enjoy running, spinning, music, football, ice hockey and model railways. I also volunteer on a regular basis as a welcomer at Norwich Cathedral.
