Infrastructure - HSE Leader
Keith is the HSE Leader for the Laing O’Rourke Infrastructure business responsible for the performance of several major infrastructure projects across the UK including HS2, Hinkley, Crossrail and Thames Tideway. Keith is playing a leading role in the implementation of LOR’s Next Gear (Safety Differently) ethos; focussing on people as the solution, on positives not the absence of negatives and on reducing bureaucracy.
Keith is also responsible for a team of HS&E professional across the UK and is working to not only influence the traditional thinking of operational staff and the workforce but also of his team.
Keith has a depth of knowledge and experience in the construction industry where he started as a Civil Engineer progressing to MICE status through his lead engineering role at Terminal 5. He has operated as a Project Leader before finding his true vocation in H&S Risk Management. He recently spent time as Head of HSE for Balfour Beatty UKCS and as the Head of H&S for the UKCG/Build UK but has returned to LOR for a new challenge.
