Derek Hillier, Regional Health & Safety Manager

Derek's background

Hi, I’m Derek ‘H’ Hillier. I joined WorkNest in 2023 as a Regional Health & Safety Manager looking after our team of consultants in the Central region.

I have 30 years’ experience in health and safety management across a range of industry sectors. Prior to my role at WorkNest I have worked primarily in housing, construction and manufacturing environments – which are some of my more specialist areas of expertise. At WorkNest I have the opportunity to undertake work across a range of subject areas including fire and food safety in addition to health and safety, which presents an enjoyable challenge in adapting to specific client needs.

As well as supporting my team, I am both a member of the Health & Safety Senior Management Team and I have my own portfolio of clients – predominantly in Wales. I thoroughly enjoy delivering training (ideally in person, though also online) and helping clients with practical solutions to the safety related issues that they may face, as well as assisting them develop their safety management systems to levels of best practice or in preparation for assessment for specific standards e.g. ISO45001.

When I’m not working, I enjoy motorcycling and judo.
