Health and Safety Advisor/Trainer

Hi, I’m Simon. I joined Cope Safety Management in July 2019 having spent 31 years in the Royal Air Force as an Environmental Health Practitioner and 2.5 years as a Health and Safety Officer with a food manufacturer/supplier. A chartered member of IOSH with a wide range of skills and experience, I like the challenge of problem solving based on various limitations and resources available. I am also interested in human behaviour, particularly in relation to its application within health and safety.

  • My favourite hobby is that I am a keen charity supporter and fundraiser. I’ve been a volunteer with the Make-a-Wish Foundation UK charity for 10 years undertaking a variety of roles and also CLIC Sargent charity for about 5 years. Also undertaken many fundraising challenges over the years, usually involving running (although I don’t really consider myself a ‘runner’!!). Biggest challenges so far, completing 1000km on a treadmill, rowing machine and bike over a 4 month period whilst serving in Afghanistan and completing 13 half marathon races in a year.
  • My favourite animals are my 2 energetic and friendly cocker spaniels, Belle and Buster and a cat, Willow who is the oldest and therefore the boss!!
  • My favourite holiday destination is anywhere in UK or overseas!! Love travelling, especially to somewhere new, taking in all the sights, culture, food and drink. Fortunate enough to have travelled to some amazing places in the world with the RAF (and also some not amazing too!!).
  • is that I probably couldn’t pick any one particular moment however have been known to be quite ‘accident prone’ which can be embarrassing at times so a career in health and safety is both ironic and ideal!
