Managing Director

One of the founding members of Essential Site Skills in 2013, Catherine's role as Managing Director is to direct and control the Company’s operations and to give strategic guidance and direction to the Board to ensure that the Company achieves its mission and objectives.

“Accidents are the biggest threat to workers and families within the UK, leaving devastation that is irreparable, that’s why I believe we can make a difference. It’s not always about ticking a box, it’s about ensuring each individual is aware of their duties, qualified in their job role and that every decision they make is well informed. Too many people are killed and seriously injured in accidents that could have been prevented. I am sincerely proud of each and every member of the ESS team and pleased to be a part of such a wonderful group of like minded individuals, as we all share the same vision – to lead the way into accident prevention through quality training and assessment.”
