PIER Appoints new Health & Safety Advisor

Pier Consulting have appointed a new Health & Safety Advisor in order to ensure both that our Health & Safety polices are up to date with current and ever changing legislation, and that Pier’s duty of care to its entire temporary workforce is effectively communicated to our staff, workforce and clients.

Pier have partnered with Andrew Warring of Green Hat Consulting Ltd. who personally delivers strategic and practical services and advice. Drawing on his 20 years of experience in the construction industry, Andrew will work in collaboration with Pier to underpin our Health & Safety obligations and to provide the reassurance, time and resources we need in order to safely and effectively fulfil our contractual role. He is a member of IOSH, CIOB and the CMI and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Leadership.

Andrew reviews our existing health, safety, quality and environmental procedures against specific industry standards and implements improved, compliant practices that reinforce our credible and professional values.  We believe that this appointment will be of great benefit to our businesses and our clients.

Pier MD, Paul Ingram, confirms that this collaboration reinforces our continuing commitment to our clients and colleagues in the construction industry. Alongside the recent introduction of free personal accident insurance for every worker on assignment for Pier, Andrew’s appointment highlights the importance we place on the Health and Safety of each individual. The team at Pier are working hard to ensure our business is a compliant, and ‘SAFE RECRUITER’ to be used by our clients and workers.

We look forward to working with Andrew and the team at Green Hat Consulting Ltd.Greenhat
