Who am I?

Safety, the environment, quality and efficiency are an essential foursome for any business. To succeed, you can’t have one without the other.

In my spare time I enjoy tinkering with vintage cars and travelling, sometimes even a combination of the two. As I say, you can’t have one without the other!

Safety isn’t achieved by accident"


I apply my level 1 knowledge about safety to a variety of sectors: automotive assembly, food, chemicals, metals, logistics and concrete. This includes investigating serious work accidents, conducting risk analyses for machines and commissioning work tools and machinery.

I am also happy providing guidance in obtaining VCA certificates and keeping them up to date. When doing that, I am able to combine my insights into safety aspects with my background in business and management.  

If you have to deal with legionella in your company, I am specialised in conducting risk analyses and drawing up management plans on that topic.
