I work as an independent safety adviser specialising in visitor safety management in countryside and coastal environments and at parks, gardens, historic buildings and structures. I also cover occupational safety and health in these settings, and in the rural, conservation and charitable sectors. Complying with your legal duties under health and safety legislation whilst at the same time ensuring that the historic or special qualities of your land and buildings are not adversely affected by safety measures is not easy - it requires careful consideration and judgements to find the right balance. I can draw on over 25 years' experience as a qualified safety practitioner and manager, most of which was spent leading the health and safety function in the National Trust, one of the country’s largest conservation charities. I hope I can work with you to find practical solutions and help give you the confidence to make the right decisions.
