Real safety. Real health. Real difference.
From cultural accountability for corporates to no-fuss guidance for grower groups, I’m passionate about real health and safety outcomes for rural industries and communities – but with one, vital difference.
For me, it’s about challenging the status quo. About synthesising real life experience with evidence-based solutions, and about cutting to the core of what it means to be ‘compliant’, which put simply, is:
just. don’t. kill someone.
Established in 2009 and based in Nairne, South Australia, I empower organisations to rethink policies, procedures and box-ticking, and to consider a different approach.
A people-based approach.
I deliver refreshing, real life results to everyday health and safety challenges… differently.
