19 Oct 2020

 

Name: Barry (Baz) Parsons

 

Job title: Corporate Work Health and Safety Manager

 

What I do at MPG: I develop project WHS management systems, conduct internal training and monitor implementation of the systems to ensure compliance.

 

The best bit about my job: It’s extremely satisfying to help site teams and contractors understand their obligations and watch the structures grow.

 

The worst bit: Unfortunately not all people understand what I do or why I do it. Occasionally this may lead to a bit of confrontation.

 

How I start my day: My day starts with a full site walk (with a coffee) to check for any issues overnight.

 

How I de-stress: I jump in my canoe, find a quiet river and go for a fish.

Super power: Tele transportation would be useful!

 

Guilty pleasure: Jack Daniels and …just Jack Daniels.

 

Advice to my teenaged self: Don’t do as I do, do as I say.
