My long term goal is getting my SHEQ Management degree. I have completed my diploma and would continue to work toward becoming an extraordinary skilled SHEQ Specialist.

Compiling monthly and weekly reports, and feedback to senior level management. Training of employees on standards and procedures. Compilation of SHEQ files and systems, and monitoring progress, to ensure compliance.

I have more than 20 years working experience in various industries and positions and believe I am a humble, natural leader with good people skills and a passion for what I do. I work well under pressure and am honest and hardworking. Focusing on safety, health and environment, I have construction, mining, oil and gas experience as well as factory, food health, fast manufacturer consumer goods and hygiene experience.
