I’m very lucky to live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty with my wife and two daughters and very much enjoy what the Bay has to offer especially its fishing and diving.
Health & safety has long played a significant part in my recent career as a Senior Field Supervisor for TB Free New Zealand (OSPRI). This role involved managing animal pest control contractors from pre-qualification through to auditing health and safety, quality control and carry out incident/accident investigations.
Samson Safety Solutions Ltd was founded in August 2015 and has since worked with many small to medium sized businesses ranging from plasterer’s to boat builders – electrical to horticultural and everything in between.
I’m constantly looking to up-skill my professional development and have completed NEBOSH General Certificate, Auditing Health & Safety Systems US5619, ICAM Awareness Training, Health & Safety Representative – Stage 1 and I’m currently working towards accreditation as health and safety practitioner.
I am an active member of New Zealand Institute of Safety Management and regularly attend BOP branch meetings.
I very much enjoy volunteering for our local Coastguard NZ Unit here in Maketu as the Unit Training Officer, Coastguard Rescue Vessel - Skipper and Health and Safety Representative.
