Selected Achievements

Health and Safety
• As the Health and Safety representative of a large department overhauled the current Safety Health and Environment (SHE) systems of work for the section following a poor external audit.
• Reviewed all processes and re-wrote risk assessment and CoSHH assessments, modifying work practices to come in line with policy.
• Delivered Health and Safety presentations to new joiners, contractors and visitors to the site.
• Asked to review and re-write the Unit Spill Control plan for the site which by its location was critical to the safe running of operations. Subsequent follow up audits proved very successful and was incorporated by other local operators

Organisation and Planning
• Tasked to provide training support to helicopter aircrews deployed during the build up to London Olympics 2012.
• Created documentation and plans to allow both aircrew and boat crews to understand the parameters of the training sorties and associated safety margins.
• This also included generic “run plans” to allow aircraft and boats to understand the requirements of the exercises and to cut down on poor communication via radio.
The outcome was that despite the short notice tasking the section was able to safely ensure training was conducted to support the Olympics and everyone involved was confident in their respective roles.

Interpersonal Skills
• Key member of the training team whilst serving in Iraq which involved training Iraqi personnel which was a difficult challenge with obvious cultural and language barriers.
• Learnt and developed basic Arabic language skills to communicate and develop a culture of ownership of the equipment that had never happened previously. Focused on the benefits of having safe systems of work which built confidence in their abilities to plan and organise daily schedules
The results of this approach resulted in an increase of over 70% in the availability of assets that the Iraqi navy had to use but more importantly grew the confidence of personnel to operate with minimal guidance.
