Patrick Sansom

Patrick is the dedicated Health & Safety Consultant for us here at Bluewood. Although Patrick has an extensive expertise in this sector, he hasn’t always been a Health & Safety guru. Having left school at 16 he joined the army and served 23 years conducting many operational tours whilst gaining a wealth of life skills during his time serving Queen and country. Upon leaving the military he moved into the world of Health & Safety working in a laboratory whilst learning to adjust to civilian life. Patrick completed his diploma to become a registered consultant and is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (CMIOSH) as well as an advanced Fire Risk Assessor for the FPA. Patrick and his Team at Summit Safety Solutions provide us with the crucial guidance and support to ensure Bluewood policies, risk assessments and H&S obligations are legal and compliant and that every single one of our sites and projects is run with Health & Safety as paramount. Patrick considers himself an ex adrenalin junkie having completed many free-fall skydives, and riding motocross for a number of years but now tries to reduce risk and enjoys a quiet day’s fishing!
