  6. 6. Martyn Yorke – CareerI have worked for a number organisationsincluding some of the companies you can seehere. Starting my early career manufacturinggas cylinder equipment, after eight yearsservice and redundancy I gained experience insome interim roles as a Warehouse Manager. Inaturally moved into Health and Safety whilstworking for Mayer Kuvert. It was here that Imanaged the Health and Safety for fiveProduction and distribution sites. I have sincemanaged Health and Safety for DHL (JLRContract), Poundland LTD & Euro Car Parts UK. 6
  7. 7. Martyn Yorke – Career(CONT)My greatest challenge would be during my timeat Poundland where H&S was very much anafter thought when incidents occurred. Toovercome this I engaged with all levels of theteam. This included working alongside theteam members to understand the problemsand challenges they faced on a daily basis.From this I could then look at the process andmodify accordingly to ensure they were clear,simple and understood. My belief is keep itsimple, pictures speak a thousand words. 7
  8. 8. HSQE – ManagementI have played a key part in the implementationof Safety Policy using HSG65. I look at thissystem as a good tool to manage safety andbring on board the senior team. (including aDirector with responsibility for H&S) this systemsubsequently helped lead to OHSAS 18801accreditationIt is vital that all senior members lead byexample and encourage all to follow safetyguidelines.It also vital that performance is measured usingboth active (safety tours, audits) and reactive(near miss, accident investigation) this will showus how we are performing and provided anytrend that will need to be addressed. This hasbeen an valuable approach to implementingsafety at Euro Car Parts. 8
  9. 9. MotivationOver the years my experience of achieving the best results from teams isexcellent. My philosophy is to lead by example and coach colleagues offeringsupport as and when it is required, or, if weaknesses are identified. I like to getinvolved with my colleagues and take a hands on approach to activities or areasfor concern, often leading improvement groups and projects. I enjoy gettingdown to the grass roots and engaging with the work force, after all, these arethe colleagues who perform the task each day of the week. 9
