I have worked with Carole for a number of years. In her role she has provided me with excellent sound advice and direction on health and safety matters.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Carole and wish her every success in her new venture which will be an undoubted triumph.

You might think health and safety issues uninteresting, boring, and attention to them just a necessity to have to deal with. Carole always sorted issues effectively and with an understanding that helped engage all so that prevention was incorporated in modus operadi thoroughly.She has a deep understanding of her subject but never overburdens others with it, just explains, solves, guides and supports. Carole brings freshness, light and good humour to her work and is a great asset to any team. A joy to work with and know.

Carole and I worked together for several years and I am happy to highly recommend her. What she brings to Health and Safety is a level of pragmatism that is often lacking. She really understood the business, its drivers and needs and managed her remit to make sure we were safe and legal but not mired in process and paperwork.
