About Charlie

A Technical Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and holder of a NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction, Charlie joined The HSQE Partnership as Safety, Sustainability and Improvement Manager, rising to the position of Track Health and Safety Manager just over 2 years later.

Starting his rail career as an HSQE Coordinator for Amey, he moved swiftly through the ranks to become an HSQE Advisor, before making the move to Balfour Beatty Rail in 2019. Joining Alstom just over 12 months later, he spent the next 16 months with multi-national transportation specialists, Alstom, before joining The HSQE Partnership in 2021.

A highly respected health and safety professional and an expert in delivering positive behavioural and cultural change, over the years Charlie has partnered with some of the leading names in rail, supporting their delivery of such high profile schemes as the North West Electrification Project, the S&C North Alliance, the Leeds Station Capacity Project and the Transpennine Route Upgrade.

Key responsibilities

  • Ensuring project teams are compliant with regards to legislation, regulation, and standards
  • Ensuring that all accidents, incidents and significant close calls are reported and investigated, with any lessons learned shared
  • Carrying out regular site inspections to ensure compliance, often in conjunction with the senior delivery management team
  • Delivering weekly safety briefings

Working for HSQE Partnership has been the best career decision I have made. Being able to offer support to a wide range of clients with a variety of health and safety requirements has really helped me develop into a stronger H&S professional. The HSQE Partnership really offers consultants an opportunity to obtain a range of career experience whilst also matching this with the delivery of academic and further educational support.
