Our story

We started our career together in 1997 working for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), providing advice and support on all aspects of health and safety law and its application in the UK. It was the best possible learning experience and one that provided a wealth of knowledge in H&S law, guidance and how it should be applied at work.

Having completed NEBOSH qualifications, we were both selected to apply what we had learnt and delivered a range of Health and safety support services to UK businesses in the property management, retail and entertainment sectors. 

We continued to work together in a variety of capacities focusing on the asbestos consultancy sector, Richard working initially as a consultant and delivering national projects to working within the technical and quality assurance team and John in strategic development, marketing and contract management.

 

In 2007, Richard moved into the utilities and civil engineering sectors and helped deliver large scale construction and development projects on behalf of Welsh Water specifically supporting CDM compliance.  John remained in the asbestos field and helped to develop growth in a range of national businesses with a flair for project management and leading delivery teams in public and private sector contracts.

Richard joined the Royal Mail Group in 2014 and as Group Head of SHE Centre of Excellence, he successfully delivered health, safety and environmental compliance within one of the UK's most complex commercial estates. Much of the activity was focused on delivering effective facilities management and large construction programmes.

Having now decided to work together again, we are keen to deliver a fresh approach to occupational health and safety and to drive improvement into customers operations, to enhance safety culture and protect customer's reputations.
