Get To Know Tom!

 

How did you end up working at WA Management?

 

I initially didn’t expect to have a career in health and safety! After studying for a BSc in Sound Engineering and Production at Birmingham City University, I worked as an Audio Visual Technician for just under 2 years until COVID-19 hit, forcing me to think about a career change.

 

Maybe it was seeing what some of the incredibly dangerous things other technicians would do to get the job done quickly that subconsciously lead me towards a career in Occupational Health and Safety…

What are you working on at the moment?

 

I’m currently working towards my NEBOSH General Certificate.

 

 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

 

I’m the first to admit that I’m a nerd – so a lot of my free time is taken up by playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends! You might also find me playing video games, watching films, 3D printing and painting models, enjoying the occasional beer, and playing the guitar and singing (screaming) along to metal music. I also support Manchester United.
