Ideally to work in the oil and gas / constrution industry as a rigging supervisor and / or safety advisor
Having worked in the Shipbuilding, Steel, and Oil & Gas industry since 1978. I have built up an extensive knowledge and understanding of the construction Industry over this time. I have worked at home and overseas long and short-term projects employed as a Rigger and more recently Rigging Foreman and Supervisor. Many firms and agencies have hired me in this period of time, due to the nature of these types of short contracts frequently moving from one job to the next. My duties include heavy lifting and rigging procedures including L.O.L.E.R. and P.U.W.E.R method statements and studies, the permit to work system, load testing and proof loading of relevant rigging and lifting equipment and certification, all cranage and winch work also overseeing on site safety and awareness requirements were understood and met, --managing and co-ordinating projects, trouble shooting and subsequent corrective action being applied. I worked as a safety rep on many offshore platforms and benefited from the safety culture that they have adopted offshore in the last fifteen or so years, leading me to be a very safety conscious individual, recently completing a N.E.B.O.S.H. exam in health and safety hoping to enhance my skills in this field also. I feel I equip myself well in any job or task that I am involved with, handling pressures and problems that arise in this type of working environment, I have been responsible for the supervision of multi national personnel, consequently I am familiar with the different cultures that I have worked with over the past few years, and in some cases checking and testing individuals bringing up to acceptable levels of competence by implementing classes to explain all aspects of lifting and rigging.

I have been employed in the construction industry for more than 27 years during which time I have undertaken both onshore and offshore projects primarily in the oil & gas sector. I am a highly qualified and experiences rigger and erector with extensive supervisory experience and a proven ability to review and enhance existing procedures to ensure efficiency and productivity.
I am a fully qualified safety and health practitioner with IOSH accreditation and my main area of expertise is in the completion of risk assessments and the implementation of new working practices designed to improve safety standards and ensure statutory compliance. I have been involved in the investigation of accidents and incidents on-site and have made subsequent recommendations to avoid the occurrence of similar issues. I have also designed and delivered health and safety training to both managers and employees. I now wish to develop my career further, and am therefore looking for a new and suitably challenging position.
I believe that my key qualities are my excellent interpersonal skills and strong communicative ability, combined with my talent for effective organisation and prioritisation. I see myself as a highly dedicated and strongly driven individual.
