Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

East Midlands-based health & safety firm continues growing with a new advisor

Castle Donington’s health and safety and event specialists, Harrier, are set to continue expanding with the introduction of new Health and Safety Advisor, Gina Spiro.

The company hopes this will enable them to help even more business owners, particularly SMEs, understand their health and safety requirements and how to implement the correct procedures.

Gina’s experience in health and safety spans 20 years. She began her career by completing an MSc in Environmental Management at Derby University and from there, spent a considerable amount of time providing health and safety support for a range of SMEs before moving onto larger companies, such as Bombardier and EON.

In her new role at Harrier, Gina is perfectly placed to support the firm’s small business clients, providing advice, guidance, arranging training, compiling documents including risk assessments and policies, and conducting audits.

“I really enjoy working with SMEs and providing them with simple and accessible assistance to benefit their workplace,” Gina explained. “I am comfortable working with people from all backgrounds and walks of life, whether they’re the MD or in charge of making the tea!”

Helen McCabe, Harrier’s Business Manager, added,

“Gina is perfect for our Health & Safety Advisor role as she has operational knowledge and understands that one size does not fit all. She brings a new dimension to the team which allows us to expand our knowledge and also understands the ‘putting people first’ philosophy of Harrier. We’re looking forward to seeing Gina in action!”

In her previous role, Gina became very involved with the training and mentoring side of health and safety, something which she found highly rewarding and fulfilling. She hopes to continue utilising her personal approach to work and support Harrier’s customers as much as possible, carrying forward the Harrier ethos of putting people first.

“When I met Helen and Managing Director Andy from Harrier, they were so enthusiastic and optimistic that I immediately knew I wanted to work with them,” Gina said. “The organisation is upbeat, energetic and progressive and I feel very fortunate to be joining them. It’s also an exciting opportunity to be able to work in different sectors providing HS&E support in addition to getting an insight to the world of event management.”

Gina started with Harrier in April, and has already expanded on her own skills, using the knowledge she has built already throughout her career, but also learning about how the company uses its expertise to support with making events safe and enjoyable.
