Dave has been involved in health and safety for more than 25 years.

He began his career as a researcher at the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) where he worked on the development of a range of devices designed to monitor exposures to hazardous dusts and fumes (including asbestos) in a variety of industrial settings.

From there, Dave joined the HSE as one of HM Inspectors of Health and Safety. With HSE Dave was responsible for inspecting a variety of workplaces across different sectors including construction, heavy engineering, molten metals, manufacturing and the service industries. Dave worked as a nominated asbestos inspector for his local HSE Division and had responsibility for the inspection and enforcement of both licensed and non-licensed asbestos removal work, as well as the licensing of asbestos removal contractors.

Dave has given evidence and prosecuted at the Magistrates Court in more than 50 cases including those involving manslaughter and multiple duty holders as well as at numerous inquests and tribunals.

He also regularly works closely with solicitors as an expert witness.
