SIT2LRN Facilitator in Occupational Health & Safety

I returned to NZ after a stint working in Australia, my current role is with Fonterra as the H&S Risk & Assurance Manager for NZ operations, but my recent roles were with a FMCG manufacturer in Auckland as a Project Safety Manager on a construction project in North Queensland and as a Safety Coordinator for project at an oil refinery in Brisbane.

I am a Fitter Welder by trade and have spent a number of years involved in the H & S Industry, including three years as an Instructor for a South Island based company dealing primarily in practical programmes such as Working at Heights, Confined Spaces etc., then onto National H & S Manager for a large stainless steel manufacturing company with branches in NZ and Australia.

In a former life I was the Manager / Team Leader for an Urban / Bush SAR team, spending 7 years in charge managing not only training, but the rescue work on the "coal face".
