I entered the world of health and safety, when an opportunity presented itself to carry out risk assessments whilst working with a shop fitting company, and was then appointed the company’s health and safety officer.  This set me on my health and safety journey and I am now a Corporate Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and a member of the Association of Project Safety (APS).

During my career, I have worked as a consultant for an international building company and six years with a large housing association before setting up What No Safety Services Ltd in 2002 here in Salisbury, Wiltshire.  We operate across the UK supporting organisations of all sizes and across a broad spectrum of industries. 

What No Safety Services Ltd offers a bespoke health, safety and environmental service, where we create tailored solutions to our client’s usual and not so usual health and safety problems.  Our team of specialist associates and the use of modern technology mean we provide a cost effective service to help our clients maintain effective risk controls.
