Alistair has more than 25 years professional experience in H&S, Engineering and Management. During his military career, Alistair was an appointed H&S Advisor. He was a Safety Practitioner covering all aspects of consultancy with the implementation of policies and procedures on Health and Safety, Environmental and Fire Safety issues across locations in the UK and Germany.
At this time H&S was more difficult to understand and attitudes more resistant to change, the process had to be very structured and was labour intensive. Additionally Alistair was involved with the introduction of Quality Management Systems throughout the services which further helped the development of his H&S systems with continuous improvement in mind.
For the last 10 years Alistair has further developed his experience and processes in the private sector with dozens of SMEs, planning and implementing long term safety management systems to comply with the law, advising management and delivering education and training programmes. Here labour is not so available and technological improvements have meant ever changing systems and documentation.
Looking forward, H&S compliance remains a requirement but the penalties are even costlier. With the ever drive for efficiency and lean management, Alistair understands safety practitioners need to be business focused as the roles of individuals need to be multi-skilled with increased Safety Support Services from your competent advisors available.
Alistair is a member of the British Safety Council, a member of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management, and is an Incorporated Engineer.
