Welcome back to the Safeti podcast. We’re now onto our second episode. As my voiceover guy has just said, I’m your host Richard Collins. The voice you would have just before was that of today’s guest Carl Mannion. Carl has very kindly come on the show with us to share how he strongly believes that health and safety both as an industry and as a system in the UK is actually failing smaller businesses and also of course to give us his viewpoint on how he feels this could be changed. Carl doesn’t pull his punches. He’s going to give us a very open and honest account of his experiences since opening his own consultancy business just over a year ago. This is really what the Safeti podcast was set out to do. Get you into the nitty-gritty of the industry and regardless of where you are in the world, I’m confident that you’ll be able to relate to a lot of what is said in this conversation. It was certainly very interesting for me to listen to Carls perspective from his recent experience and we both look forward to hearing your thoughts and listening to your feedback. Just to make it a little bit more digestible for you, I split this podcast into two parts. So let’s waste no more time and shoot over to a conversation with Carl.
