Ben is an experienced Work Health and Safety Director, with expertise in governance, risk management, assurance and compliance. Ben however has a diverse background, starting at Deloitte in our Forensic practice before transitioning into our risk and audit practice, where he successfully led large, complex projects focused on enhancing organisational risk understanding and implementing processes focused on ‘what must go right’. Ben’s experience comes from working with a wide variety of organisations in differing industries, including oil & gas majors, electricity, gas, mining, mining services and the public sector.

Ben believes that a focus on compliance and ‘red tape’ does not drive the right culture or behaviours. Approaches to governance, risk and compliance need to be balanced and not prohibit work, but rather promote efficient and effective operation to achieve business objectives. The focus for businesses needs to be on ‘what must go right’, rather than what can go wrong.
