Meet the Committee

Shane Jeeves 

Shane is Senior Associate at Faithorn Farrell Timms, an award-winning Chartered Surveyors’ practice, offering a range of multi-disciplinary property consultancy and professional services.  His role involves undertaking all Principal Designer aspects of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, including advising our clients of their statutory duties, assessing the competency of proposed designers and contractors, attending design team meetings to comment on designs and collating Pre-Construction Information Packs. 

In my role as Branch Chair I will focus on growing branch attendance and awareness of IIRSM as well as ensuring that the members receive CPD on a broad range of risk management topics.

Alan Edwards

Alan is Assurance Director (HSSEQ) for a company that has 13 COMAH storage sites and 2000km of pipelines supplying aviation fuel to commercial and military airports in the UK. This is very process safety driven with a lot of interaction with the competent authority (HSE, EA, SEPA) and is regulated as part of the Hazardous Industries.

In my role as Vice Chair I hope the wider business skills that I have developed to Director and Board level as part of the Senior Leadership Team of my company, can assist IIRSM and its branch members. I am keen to bring younger people into the industry and ensure that the skills of safety professionals are accepted and valued accordingly. I look forward to the opportunity of serving IIRSM and its members.

Tom Watling 

Tom is Head of Health & Safety/Group Senior H&S Manager at Paddy Power Betfair Plc, heading up the Group HSQA team and H&S function.  The role involves leading a team of H&S professionals based across UK, Ireland and Romania, working with stakeholders and business unit heads globally (UK, Ireland, Malta, Portugal, Italy, Romania, US, Australia). I am responsible for creating and driving a positive H&S culture throughout the business' Retail (620 shops across UK and IRL) and Corporate (offices globally) divisions.

I believe that networking amongst fellow professionals is essential for societal progression in the safety and risk management industry. As a committee member, my focus will be to ensure the London Branch offer engaging touchpoints to cover the vast plethora of health, safety and risk management professionals and disciplines within this most diverse city.
