Name: Tyrone Partridge
Committee Role: Chair
Supporting statement: I have been the Vice Chair of the Thames Valley Branch for the last four years and acting Chair for the last six months when our Chair stood down. I have worked on the committee over the last 9 years working on arranging the programme and speakers as well as site visits. Over the last couple of years I have forged connections with South Coast Branch and held successful joint events. I am a Health and Safety Professional (CMIOSH) and a Qualified Manager (Post Graduate Diploma), Environmentalist (MSc/PIEMA) and Quarry Professional (Fellow of the Institute of Quarrying). I am a committee member and council member for various committee including Mineral Product Association, Environmental Services Association and work with groups to set industry standards with the HSE (QNJAC) and educational companies to agree National Occupational Standards for SHE qualifications. My aim to give back to a profession that I have worked in for almost 40 years and to encourage others and especially the younger generation to improve their working environment.

Name: Nicholas Bathurst
Committee Role: Vice Chair
Supporting statement: Having been a previous Vice Chair for the branch prior to a spell over seas, I returned last year and took over as acting Vice Chair. I have a passion for safety and feel that it is not a job but the first thing we do daily so working in safety is a bonus. I actively promote safety in all areas of my work and external voluntary groups I am associated with. I wish to further pass on my knowledge and experience to other members via my commitment to the branch and the organisation.
