John Green, Laing O’Rourke
SHP readers and judges were unanimous in their praise for John Green, the Director HSE for Laing O’Rourke Europe and Global major projects.
John Green has worked in the oil, gas, petrochemical, electronics, heavy engineering, construction and aviation sectors and has 38 years’ experience of industrial safety.
Readers applauded John for his role in transforming the health and safety profession by actively promoting his ‘safety differently’ message, questioning “the current climate of paperwork, double-checking everything, ‘compliance’ that has little real impact.”
John is a tireless campaigner for looking at how we improve the practise and reputation of health and safety in the UK.
