Jean Harford
SHEQ Inspector


"I have worked in Construction for just over 20 years as a Health and Safety Advisor/Inspector and with Barnes Construction for seven of those. Construction is so varied, no two days are ever the same.

Many people would say construction is a man’s world, I would beg to differ. I would like to think I am effective with my peers and my colleagues. I love working with the guys on site, we have our banter, but I have learnt that if you treat people how you want to be treated, and speak to people how you want to be spoken to, you gain the respect from them all which is a great feeling.

Over the years I like to think I have made a difference and possibly even helped prevent an accident or incident.”
