Paul is also a graduate member of IOSH and is building on his health and safety experience as part of our team. Eager to further develop his knowledge and skills, he is currently training to become a qualified asbestos surveyor and aims to pick up more qualifications in other specialist areas as he continues his career at Southalls.

Paul is a confident communicator and has a good deal of experience in delivering presentations in front of large audiences. He enjoys the step-by-step approach in health and safety and using independent research to solve problems, as well as travelling and working in different places and scenarios.

As a graduate in Sport & Exercise Science from Oxford Brookes University, Paul takes a keen interest in health and fitness.
