A brief introduction to who we are, although you'll rarely see us dress this fancy!
Jeff originally trained as a structural engineer, working on some major infrastructure throughout the UK but was requested to use his knowledge in the events profession whereby the call was too much. He used his varied background in highway works, building structures, temporary structures for outdoor events and event safety planning, his expertise includes the provision of H&S advice where one-off and unique large scale events are being considered and a reputation as a calming influence on event sites. His growing involvement in Leisure and Construction Safety lead to Jeff joining the Health and Safety Department at the end of 1998 undertaking the role of Planning Supervisor under the CDM Regulations before moving on to specialise in event site design, inspection and certification of temporary structures, event site risk assessments and safety advisory services to the event industry.
