Malcolm Tullett is the author of Risk it which was published on 30 June 2021
Malcolm Tullett has an insider’s view of all things safety. Having served as a Senior Operational Fire Officer he has seen the fatalities, first-hand and played a pivotal role in clearing up the mess when things go wrong. Now as a business owner, advising all types of organisation, from small to blue chip on health and safety matters he understands the challenges of protecting the wellbeing and safety of staff and premises.
Health and Safety is a highly regulated and risky business! The introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act in 1974 has helped drive down the number of workplace accidents but has not eradicated them. This book takes safety to a new level and explores the belief that work environments will only become less risky when individuals incorporate best practice with managed intuition.
Malcolm’s interest and understanding of risk and safety started at naval college. He continued to learn and analyse the rationale and effectiveness of long-standing practices whilst studying for an HND in Nautical Studies. He joined his first ship (part of the Cunard fleet) in Durban South Africa at the age of 16 as a Cadet Navigating Officer. Life at sea was replaced by life in a fire station and Malcolm’s potential was quickly recognised whilst training as a firefighter in Southwark. Malcolm rapidly rose through the ranks and at 22 was the youngest UK Station Officer with responsibility for 18 crew and safeguarding thousands of Clapham residents. After a distinguished fire service career and promoted to Assistant Divisional Officer Malcolm became a senior safety trainer before starting his own successful health and safety business.
Risk it is a game changer and an absolute must for business owners, anyone working in the industry or those who have responsibility for people and premises.
