      Tania was introduced to the world of health and safety in the civil construction sector back in 2007. Her journey of learning with Blacktop Construction and in later years Higgins gave her a solid foundation in both health and safety and quality. 

Tania moved on to expand and develop her health and safety qualifications in the waste industry. This high-risk industry has given Tania a wealth of knowledge which she is now looking forward to sharing and developing with Site Safe. 

What Tania bring to your clients 

A passion for health, safety and wellness that can encourage a cycle of continuous improvement both individually and collectively. Knowing that even the smallest of steps can get you to the top of the mountain.
