Association for Project Safety appoints Technical and Standards Manager

The Association for Project Safety (APS) announces the appointment of Andrew Leslie, as its Technical and Standards Manager.

As an organisation representing good practice delivery by its members involved in construction health and safety risk management, APS is the UK’s largest multi-disciplinary membership body for individuals and organisations involved in the design, planning and managing of construction projects as defined in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.

Speaking of this appointment Rob Strange, APS Chief Executive, said:

“I am delighted that we have managed to secure the services of Andrew. He is an experienced CDM practitioner and architect and has been an APS member since 1995. Andrew will add considerable experience in our work to raise standards of both the membership and the products and services that we provide and he joins us at an exciting time. With changes to the CDM Regulations likely to come into force in April 2015, Andrew will be a vital part of helping us set new standards for construction health and safety risk management.”

Andrew Leslie is no stranger to construction health and safety and has run his own consultancy for the last 6 years providing CDM Co-ordinator services, CDM and asbestos awareness training, architectural services and advice to design practices and clients. Prior to joining APS Andrew was previously the Director of Practice at the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland and latterly General Manager of the Institution of Construction Safety.

Andrew’s appointment commences on 1st December 2014 and is part of the APS’s commitment to develop its products, services and standards to maintain its position as the leading pan-industry membership body for construction health and safety.
