Evolution, the Buckinghamshire-based security and fire installer, has appointed Christopher Evans as its new Compliance and Health and Safety Manager.
Chris, pictured, joins from Teledyne Reynolds where he was Environment, Health and Safety Officer. He also has compliance experience gained from number of Lead Auditor roles for ISO certification bodies, ISOQAR, IMS International and Exova BM TRADA, where he was certifying Quality, Environmental and OHSAS Management Systems.
Before working in the private sector, Chris was 18 years in the Royal Air Force as Ground Support Equipment bay manager with IOSH Managing Safety and Risk Assessor qualifications.
Richard Lambert, Managing Director of Evolution, says: “With standards constantly evolving, we need to ensure we have specialist knowledge and insight where we need it, and Chris will help support both the business and our individual employees to adapt to embrace change.”
Chris is working with teams across all areas of the business. He says: “We already have the process systems in place, and are currently monitoring and conducting audits to ensure that we are on target for achieving additional certifications where required along with maintaining our current certifications. Ultimately we are improving all the departments across the board, and in turn this will have a positive impact on the way our customers view our activities. We are demonstrating that we work to a high level of quality throughout our practices; through the management and the services that we provide.”
Priorities for Chris will be supporting the business towards transition to the latest version of the management standard ISO9001:2015, besides working towards achieving ISO27001 Security Information Management and ISO14001 Environmental Management. He is also working on specific Health and Safety training, including hand arm vibration, and better driver safety for those employees whose jobs take them on the road.
