RoSPA associate consultant Edward Braisher has been included in Health and Safety at Work magazine’s “40 under 40”.
The campaign celebrates 40 leading health and safety practitioners who represent the best of the younger generation, as part of Health and Safety at Work’s 40th anniversary in print.
Edward’s role on RoSPA projects includes ensuring health and safety and risk assessment compliance. Around 160 safety specialists put themselves forward, ranging from professionals making their mark at the beginning of their careers, to mid-career practitioners with significant achievements under their belt. Candidates were scored in three areas: personal and professional achievement, evidence of innovation or creative thinking, and contribution to safety in its wider sense.
Nathan Davies, RoSPA’s head of consultancy, said: “RoSPA staff and clients think Edward is great; his approach to challenges is refreshing. He has the abilities and skills to make difficult problems understandable and demanding projects easy to manage. Edward is a great advocate for safety, health and welfare issues, and specialists and non-specialists could learn a lot from his style and activities at work. I’m glad to see this has been formally recognised.”
The judges included Philip White, the HSE’s head of regulation, leading health and safety lawyer Steffan Groch, and Tania Barker and Liam Mihell of NEBOSH.
Edward said: “I am thrilled and honoured to have been selected as one of Health and Safety at Work’s 40 under 40 achievers. To be recognised for my achievements in health and safety over the last 20 years is very rewarding and I’m very proud of the contributions I have made to make the workplace a safer environment.”
The successful 40 have been profiled in a special article on Health and Safety at Work’s website, and in the January issue of the magazine.
