About me

  • Regional Background

My first role after leaving school was with a Transport company in NSW. This introduced me into the world of Transport and Logistics and subsequently started my career.

In between then and now, I’ve managed a fast-paced restaurant, renovated a couple of houses, moved to the other end of the country, started a family, and started my career with Qube.

Working for Qube for the past 8+ years has been remarkable and during that time I’ve had the opportunity to learn and be involved in a vast number of projects and operations.

About my role

  • Flexible
  • Idealistic
  • Independent
  • Personable

The role of a Safety Manager is to drive the Zero Harm values across the business by developing and executing strategic and operational plans, managing and driving behavioural safety change, and day to day support and advice to a variety of stakeholders.

This role will walk around work sites, talk with workers, build culture within the workplace, develop safety skills, leadership skills and uphold the high values of the business.
