WORK EXPERIENCE.


2003 - 2011 SAFETY OFFICER and Operations manager to PJL Surveys, Port Talbot

Land and Civil Engineers Admin / Safety Officer

Initially employed assisting in an administration capacity. I then undertook a role inducting new staff in company safety, policies & procedures. The position naturally expanded to preparing method statements & risk assessments.

In order to understand the construction industry better I often spent time on site assisting site staff. Within twelve months of my employment I started studying for a NEBOSH Health & Safety Certificate and spent one day a week visiting the numerous sites that PJL Surveys hire staff & equipment to. At the time we had a contract in Porthcawl with Redrow Ltd building apartments on the site of the old Esplanade Hotel. This site was very helpful in progressing my knowledge & insight into construction site safety as I was involved almost from the start of the contract.

I successfully completed the NEBOSH Health and Safety exam in Construction during 2005 & I am now the Safety Officer within the company. I am still responsible for induction of new staff and refresher courses, toolbox safety talks, also company method and risk statements however the size of the company limits expanding my opportunities.

My role with PJL Surveys is varied, from management of company vehicles and hire equipment. I attend various construction sites for site inductions and to induct PJL Surveys staff in all aspects of occupational health and safety. As a trained nurse I am also available for consultations from our engineers and staff in first aid and other health issues.
