Risk and safety management are fundamental to the success of any organisation and should be seen as investments, not spends. With increasing scrutiny on not just the legal and financial, but moral and reputational aspects of business performance, knowing who to engage for accurate, verifiable independent and trustworthy advice is crucial. It is this advice we strive to deliver.

He is a recognised expert and as a result has been asked for support in a range of investigations, including, most notably, the Legionella outbreak in Barrow-in-Furness in August 2002. He has been involved in investigations carried out by the local authorities, HSE and ORR.

With his extensive working knowledge, Greg is a regular presenter and has spoken at events run by, amongst others CIBSE, IWFM, IIRSM, BISRA, the Health Protection Agency, The British Safety Council, RICS, and IOSH. He is also a regular contributor to the industry press with well over 200 articles published to date.

Using this combined experience Greg is increasingly being used by customers to brief and update their boards of directors and governors on health, safety and environmental compliance.
