Paul Sidney Grad IOSH, MIIRSM - Safety Consultant


I have over 15 years’ experience working in Health and Safety.  Whilst this has been in a rail environment, with many complex challenges and high risks, I have managed safety in administration offices, staff facilities / mess rooms and retail environments such as ticket offices and stations shops.  My experience includes managing public safety in busy stations environments as well as managing the risks on board trains and on the track itself.  I also have experience in working in train maintenance depots where trains are maintained 24/7. 

Recently I have been working with contractors setting up safe construction sites in and around train stations.  These have been set up to carry out demolition / construction work as thousands of people pass next to the site and trains continue to run.


I often work closely with senior managers, front line staff, contractors, regulators and trade unions to improve safety throughout the workplace.  I'm proud that I have managed many significant improvements in safety management and performance whilst remaining focused on delivering the needs of the business. 

I have worked producing and maintaining the safety management systems for one of the largest train companies in the UK, leading risk assessments for major projects and complex changes in operation.  I also enjoy being on the front line, giving safety advice to local managers, making a real difference to how safety in the workplace is managed and perceived.  

The result is that staff begin to fully understand the risks they are facing and then begin to choose to work safely.


My wide experience in safety management enables me to adapt to almost any type of business.   I prefer a down to earth and practical approach to health and safety management and look forward to working with you, to make the  improvements in safety that you need.
