Chris Merson joins as an Electrical trainer

   15 February 2023         News

Develop would like to extend a warm welcome to Chris Merson who has joined Stuart Gilby’s Estates and Facilities Management Training team as an Electrical HV/LV trainer.

Chris is joining Develop and bringing a wealth of electrical, safety and compliance training with him. Before Develop, Chris worked for EMCOR as an Authorising Engineer. He also worked as a safety manager and trained those in competent person training.

“The thing I like most about training is the ability to pass on the knowledge and expertise I have gained through my career. As a former Health and Safety Advisor I know the regulations inside and out and I want to instil this into the next generation of workers, so they do not harm themselves or others. In my experience I have found the biggest cause of accidents are lack of PPE and lack of supervision – which leads back to training.”

Throughout his career Chris have developed systems, areas, workshops, and training courses. Chris always takes the health and safety of others into consideration, even if that means he must make difficult decisions.

So far Chris has found everyone at Develop very welcoming. “It’s great that people are taking the time to introduce themselves to me and taking the time to tell me about their role.”

Away from work Chris is a big horse racing fan!
