Who am I?

I have many years of experience as an internal and external prevention adviser in the nuclear and industrial sector. In doing so, I have gained a broad knowledge of the ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 management systems. I act regularly as an internal and external auditor and I also present many training courses and give presentations, both internally and for Mensura clients.

My aim is to keep everyone’s nose pointing in the same direction at all times. Because that’s how you create an effective policy on wellbeing.

I spend my spare time travelling, gardening and taking care of my animals.
