My first awareness of the importance of safety in the workplace came at age 19 when I joined the navy and worked as an aircraft technician on an aircraft carrier flight deck which is one of the most dangerous areas to work on any naval ship. We were highly trained on safe work practices and personal awareness of the hazards involved and of the safety rules to protect us. Concern for safety continued as I worked in the aircraft industry for over a decade, in both corporate and airline capacity. The opportunity to work as an industrial safety inspector for the Ministry of Labour was a natural continuance of making safety my focus. My familiarity with Government legislation and regulations made my transition to a safety consultant with Help Safety Services a positive one.
