Virginia is an experienced Safety & Quality Consultant with an extensive breadth and depth of knowledge in O&G, Mining Local & State Government, Maritime, Logistics & Transport, Health, Utilities and Construction backed up by excellent business acumen and the ability to tackle client perception and system problems. An intuitive people leader, coach and connector who develops, supports and stretches people to be their best ensuring an embedded culture of safety and quality across an organisation.
In safety, I need to convince others to follow me to meet the organisation’s mantra and work towards the agreed safety strategy. The most effective way to do this is having the ability to build strong relationships with everyone in the organisation and use operational champions to drive the safety behaviours and expectations.
Safety requirements and worksites are constantly evolving and changing and so does the risk profiles across different environments. Providing guidance in safety matters and feedback to help site based staff as well as managers to strengthen, build knowledge and skills to perform tasks safely and highlight best practice.
