Key Successes

• Assisted official government bodies and internal engineers with investigations into incidents acting as the key data provider. This provided a greater insight into possible fault modes and running irregularities leading up to the incident giving a potential cause.

• Ran and managed minor projects looking into condition of assets through the Thames side route this including manpower, tools and equipment and document retention and distribution procedures. Results of project include a better understanding of the OHL infrastructure as whole and increased maintenance frequency awareness.

• Re-organised the technical documentation library of my delivery unit and maintained the library keeping all records up to date and valid. This resulted in a much more efficient and productive information distribution function as all data was kept in a logical and controlled fashion.

• Was the pilot technical officer to manage and distribute the hazard index scoring system for the management of reports for safety related events applicable to E&P. This system is now used by E&P functions to score safety related events.

• Managed the Rail Vehicle team through a time of great change which included organisational, office, technological, process change. During which not only was the change a success the delivery time of our reports dropped from over 1.5 days to an MMA of 1.03 days with reduced staff and also higher workload.
