Philippa Leech

Health and Safety Consultant

I’m one of the newest members of the Team, and I joined LRB Consulting in November 2019. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to work in a variety of different industries in a number of different countries; which has provided me with a wealth of experience and understanding. As a former client of LRB Consulting (I even took them with me when I changed jobs), I understand the pressure of the day job but also recognise what a vital place Health and safety have within that. In recent years I have managed Health and Safety in both high-end office space and disaster recovery environments (fire and flood), and I have considerable experience with different third party H&S accreditation schemes. I look forward to working with you as a member of the LRB Consulting Team.
