BGEN has appointed Greg Duncan as Group Health & Safety Director. The board level appointment reinforces the company’s commitment to health and safety and will see Greg tasked with continuing the company’s continuous journey to zero harm. This will include overseeing the ongoing digitalisation of the organisation’s health and safety systems.
“As a business we’ve always placed paramount importance on health and safety,” says Robin Whitehead, chief executive at BGEN. “This board level appointment, a first for the company, will give Greg the platform to further improve our health and safety systems. Health and safety will remain our number one value.”
Prior to joining BGEN, Greg has held various senior health and safety roles during his twenty-plus year career at companies including Balfour Beatty. During this time, he has worked across several sectors, including nuclear, which have extremely high health and safety standards. He also holds a number of formal qualifications and has been a chartered member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health for more than 15 years.
In the short-term, Greg’s main priority will be developing a detailed understanding of BGEN. This will include visiting BGEN’s customers onsite, many of which operate in industries such as FMCG, heavy industry, pharmaceutical and utilities. Medium to long-term, Greg will oversee the ongoing digitalisation of the company’s health and safety systems. This will provide the business with real-time analytics and leading indicators to inform future decisions on investment such as training and spend to support the organisation’s continuous journey to zero harm.
“I have joined BGEN at an exciting time following its recent rebrand from Boulting, with the company firmly focused on the future,” says Greg Duncan. “I am looking forward to supporting BGEN’s next generation engineering solutions with forward-thinking and strategic health and safety support. I have a blank canvass to help evolve the company’s approach and make a real difference”
