Heather Bryant becomes UK's Chief Inspector of Construction

Graham Marshall - Friday, March 08, 2013

The Health and Safety Executive (UK HSE) has appointed a new Chief Inspector of Construction.

Heather Bryant will replace Philip White at the end of March.

Heather joined UK HSE from private industry in 1987.

Heather has worked as an inspector in a number of industries, including construction, agriculture, engineering and manufacturing.

She is currently the UK HSE’s divisional director responsible for the Southern field operations division, which covers London, South East and the East of England.

Heather, who is a member of the HSE Construction Programme Board, becomes HSE’s second female chief inspector of construction – Sandra Caldwell was the first.

After four years in post, Philip moves to lead HSE’s operational strategy division, which oversees the regulation of key sectors such as waste and recycling, agriculture, and manufacturing.

The Chief Inspector of Construction heads a division of 260 specialist inspectors, policy officials and support staff.

Unfortunately, the construction industry remains one of Britain's most dangerous industries, with 49 people killed and 2,884 seriously injured in 2011 - 2012.

So Heather certainly has a lot to do.
