H&S Manager, NASHiCS and HC-One
A member of NASHiCS National Executive (NE) since 2009 and a H&S professional for over 25 years, vast majority of my career in the Care and Charity Sectors. Currently H&S Manager at HC-One, previously at Anchor, the MS Society and the Disabilities Trust. Published a number of articles in the professional press, and was lead author of the original â€˜Additional Guidance Documentâ€™ published in conjunction with the (then) CFOA. I am involved in development of a new NASHiCS website, and am attending the Safer Needles Network reviewing how the message of safer sharps can be communicated across the care sector. I have also worked on a project to provide â€˜benchmarkingâ€™ information for our Sector, and am currently researching the viability of peer-review systems to look at and promote academic research papers to ensure that our guidance to the sector is kept at the cutting edge of best practice.
