Dave Barker New
An experienced Health and Safety adviser, and member of IIRSM with experience in Health and Safety enforcement, accident investigation.
Dave Started in Local government before moving to the Norwegian oil and gas sector where he operated as a plant integrity safety engineer for an offshore installation.
Dave has extensive knowledge in active and passive fire protection as well as in machine safety. He has worked in detail with Cable and piping penetrations in fire divisions and inspected during dry dock periods for large multinational cruise liner companies
Dave provides a specialist competency from the oil and gas industry that is fully transferable to other market areas and his approach is to rather raise competency within a business through proactive training, rather than have to alter the manner a company operates after an incident or enforcement visit.
The workplace culture is paramount in his thinking with the belief that Safety should filter down from the top level, to those carrying out the daily tasks of the company.
