New recruits strengthen growing health and safety team

Napthens Health and Safety, the health and safety arm of East Lancashire-based regional law firm Napthens, has continued its growth by appointing a new adviser.

Jane Pinfold joins the team as a Health and Safety Consultant, following the recent appointments of Ashley Burgess and Tana Vengrinova.

Napthens Health and Safety, which makes up part of the wider Napthens group, offers a full health and safety service including audits, site visits, training and consultation. The service also offers risk assessments for companies returning to the workplace following Covid-19 or offering support to businesses with employees working from home.

In the last few weeks the service has been in particular demand, assisting organisations to implement new health and safety procedures to enable a safe return to the workplace.

The three new starters will work with clients across the region, assisting them to fulfil their health and safety responsibilities through training, advice, inspections, and auditing.

Jane joins the firm as an experienced health and safety consultant, specialising in the construction and retail sectors.

Ashley joined the firm from a global employment law and health and safety consultancy with 14 years’ worth of experience in health and safety advice, specialising in the construction and engineering sectors. She has also worked on nationwide, large scale construction projects, including the Millennium Dome and has experience as a quantity surveyor.

Tana joined the team with over nine years’ experience advising companies on health and safety compliance in Great Manchester, most recently with LTE Group.

Tana and Ashley are both members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

Chris Walker, Head of Napthens Health and Safety, said: “Health and safety has never been more important as businesses learn to operate safely in a new working environment. Jane, Tana and Ashley join us at a critical time as we offer advice on health and safety assessments for home working employees in addition to supporting businesses bringing workers back on site after a period of suspended activity.”
