Professional Profile

I am an enthusiastic, objective driven and optimistic individual who strives to empower and affect colleagues positively. My career objective is to be a SHEQ Manager in 5 years. When presented with challenges, I remain headstrong and demonstrate perseverance and determination in completing tasks within deadlines. Some of my attributes include excellent interpersonal and communication skills and guiding, motivating and training, a successful and productive team that thrives in highly pressurised and challenging working environments.

In the past year I have undertaken jobs that have provided me with experience in the Occupational Health and Safety field and this has further increased my passion for ensuring safety in the workplace. This passion is attested by the fact that I have volunteered at industries, without pay, to enhance my knowledge base and improve my skill set. I wish to build on the experience that I have gained and I am ready for new challenges and an increased level of responsibility. Career Summary
