OBJECTIVE

My career objectives are to widen my scope of abilities and skills. Although working as an advanced life support paramedic and always being involved as an HSE advisor on site I would now like to take on a full time roll in the HSE field. I have accumulated alot of experience in direct and indirect roles within this field over the years,with 7 of those years being on remote sites which I feel have equipped me to be able to be more than just a safety guy. With my HSE, medical, fire and rescue experience I am equipped to advise on all levels of HSE on site.HSE is a field I enjoy working in, it challenges my skills and abilities as an interdependent and independent advisor. Remote site posts encourage me to want to advance and develop my training in offshore survival skills and health and safety strategies. I have no doubt if given the chance to prove myself I will be able to use these skills to benefit your organization and will form an integral part of your team.
