Bennett Christmas welcomes Risk Management Specialist
Bennett Christmas Group has welcomed risk management and health & safety specialist Adam Farrar to its team.
The appointment comes after the launch of BC Risk Management, a dedicated company within the Bennett Christmas Group which is headed up by Anthony Birch. BC Risk Management provides Health & Safety, Construction and Fire Safety consulting, assessments, reports and training.
Adam joins the team with more than 20 years of experience. He specialises in construction safety and has previously worked at the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
His previous training includes a NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety, for which he gained a distinction, and Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS). Adam is also a Technician Member of IOSH.
“I am thrilled to be joining the team and helping to expand Bennett Christmas’s service offering,” comments Adam. “We have an exciting opportunity to help the firm’s many insurance customers to fulfil their health and safety obligations.”
CEO Mark Bennett added: “Adam’s qualifications and in-depth expertise make him the ideal candidate to join our new business. As a community insurance broker, we hope to be able to bring this vital risk management service to our existing customers, to help them stay safe and legal with minimal hassle.”
Adam’s appointment continues Bennett Christmas’s exciting expansion, after the firm welcomed nine employees from Slade Edwards Insurance Brokers last month.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
