Dale has worked for the Health and Safety Service since 2002, becoming its Head back in 2014. He manages the service and its six advisers, providing expert advice to academies and schools. Well qualified, Dale currently holds a NEBOSH Certificate, NEBOSH Diploma 1 and NVQ in Occupational Safety and Health. He’s also an advanced fire risk assessor, advanced DSE assessor, and is on the Register of Playground Inspectors International. Phew!
Dale has worked in education for 26 years, starting as a caretaker at Ilkley College, moving on to be the site manager at Skipton Girls’ High School before joining us here. That means he was actually a customer of the Health and Safety Service before joining. “I’m not sure there are many Heads of Service that can say that!”
