Ian Cresswell is a note worthy leader in the health& safety profession. His primary goal during his 30 years’ experience in this specialist field has been to influence new ways of thinking, and to

change old fashioned attitudes and approaches to safety leadership.

Having learnt his craft at John Laing, Ian spent time at Galliford’s before spending 20 years at the Durkan Group, with 15 of those years as Board Director for the health, safety, quality and environmental disciplines.

During his time at Durkan, Ian developed several successful safety programs, culminating in the LEAD management programme, which recognised the key connections between safe, quality focused cultures and organisational success.

Having recently worked for Tier 1 contractor, ISG, as Head of H&S for their London Construction division before moving to Baily Garner (health & safety) , Ian has constantly striven to work with inhouse teams to declutter the corporate safety management system and deliver real benefits to employee engagement, productivity and health and safety.

Ian holds Chartered Membership at IOSH and is a Fellow of the CIOB
