SMAS Worksafe appoint new Technical Director

Leading SSIP member scheme, SMAS Worksafe has appointed Adam Annetts as the new Technical Director as part of the latest phase of growth.

Adam comes to SMAS Worksafe from Boden Group where he was the Group Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) Manager. Adam brings a wealth of knowledge to the company within construction, facilities management as well as highways and will oversee the Assessment Team who undertake and assess all companies against the SSIP Core criteria.

At Boden Group, Adam was responsible for providing strategic direction around H&S, Quality Management and Environmental issues across construction, facilities management, as well as fire and security divisions. One of many noticeable achievements was the creation of the SHEQ portal and mobile applications which utilised technology to reduce bureaucracy and increase efficiency within the industry; the latter of which included logging and reporting incidents and near misses with automated statistical dashboard output as well as H&S, quality inspections and Toolbox Talk app, delivering toolbox talks/Safety alerts to personal mobile phones with read receipt confirmation.

Before his time at Boden Group, Adam work as the Continuous Improvement Manager at Interserve South and Southwest. It was his work here that he was rewarded with the Innovate UK National Innovation Award. The award recognised Adam’s work for implementing several Health and Safety information tools including a national health and safety performance metric system, a regional “voice of the customer” data tracking tool, and an internal audit database with statistical process control features.

Danny Marinou, Managing Director commented “Adam has a strong reputation within Construction, Facilities Management, as well as Highways and this experience, will help us to shape our product and support to meet our customer’s future needs. We are delighted to welcome Adam to the Senior Leadership Team where he will play a crucial role in developing a SHEQ offering which is appropriate for our Clients needs and supports our customers to run greener, safer and more productive businesses”
