Sheffield Forgemasters appoints new HSE Director

Sheffield Forgemasters has appointed a new Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Director to oversee all aspects of its 64 acre operations.

Carl West, a health and safety specialist for 20 years, joins the company from Parker Hannifin where he was Division EHS Manager.

He will work to uphold the company’s coveted ISO 45001 safety standard and to support continuous improvement processes for HSE.

He is a Fellow Member of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). He is also a Practitioner Member of The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).

“Health, safety and environmental responsibilities are our primary objective and nothing that we do carries more importance than the safety of our employees and those attending our site,” said Gareth Barker, Chief Operating Officer at Sheffield Forgemasters.

“Carl has a prestigious background as a senior HSE practitioner within industry and also has a strong understanding of the challenges posed by heavy engineering. We are delighted to welcome him to Sheffield Forgemasters.”

Mr West added: “I am excited to be a part of this iconic company and to carry on with the good work that has been done by my predecessors to transform the business and to implement 21st century standards within such a historic setting.

“The fact that Sheffield Forgemasters has been certified against ISO 45001 is an outstanding factor and was part of the reason that I was attracted to the role.”
