His audience walk away from his talk engaged with the process of health and safety because they have witnessed firsthand the effect of getting it wrong.
Paul works with many companies who have seen the benefit of not just telling staff and contractors what to do, but showing them what the personal effect could be by ignoring Health and Safety guidelines.

Paul is the reason why Health and Safety in the work place is important. All workers receive their company’s standard compulsory briefing of what to do, what not to do, what to wear, what not to wear, where to go and where not to go. This induction often doesn't achieve the reason why it is so, important to heed these rules.

In 2014 Paul was awarded the IOSH Managing Safety certificate.

In 2015 Paul was given the highest individual award for those that have gone "above and beyond" to improve the safety of others from ROSPA. He was given the Archangel Award for his continual commitment to motivating others to improve safety at work.
