7 Aug 2017
Lawrence Waterman has been appointed as the new chairman of the British Safety Council, following Lynda Armstrong’s decision to retire.
Armstrong, who has been chairman of the British Safety Council since 2010, will step down in November.
She said: “It has been a privilege to serve as chair of the British Safety Council for the last seven years. The organisation has remained as relevant today as it was at its foundation 60 years ago, by growing its reach and adapting to new challenges in promoting health and safety.”
Waterman, formerly head of health and safety for the London 2012 Olympic Delivery Authority, is a founding partner of Park Health & Safety, which helps businesses manage risk.
He is also director of health and safety for the Battersea Power Station development, and was trustee for the British Safety Council between 2012 and 2015.
He said: “I am looking forward to taking on the role of chairman of the British Safety Council which focuses on protecting vulnerable people in the workplace and empowering them to better manage risk, wellbeing and mental health.
“The British Safety Council, together with its member organisations, is a powerful force for good and I am proud to take on a leading role within it.”
The British Safety, which works with business across a variety of sectors, including engineering, is a non-profit organisation designed to help companies reduce risk and prevent injuries in the workplace.
