Associated British Ports appoints new head of Health, Safety, and Environment

Associated British Ports (ABP) welcomes Roger Pearce to the company, as head of health, safety, and environment (Humber) and supporting health and safety for the Group.

Roger Pearce has worked for both regulatory and commercial organisations within various sectors, including manufacturing, real estate, and hospitality.

Moreover, he joins the team after 12 years in the healthcare industry where he oversaw high-risk environments including the sterilisation of medical devices using radiation and highly hazardous chemicals. Additionally, his long-standing background in health and safety began after 12 years in the Merchant Navy.

He also qualified as an environmental health officer, which gave him a grounding in the legal aspects and managing safety.
