My name is Chris Jerman and I'm currently the national Safety Manager for John Lewis covering: Retail, Distribution, Manufacturing, Leisure and Corporate offices. That's about 25, 000 Partners from Aberdeen to Southampton.

I've been in this line of work for some 20 years now and I'd like to think that I have a distinctive approach to that which others choose to call 'health and safety'. I see it as management - you shouldn't need safety people; it's not supposed to be that complex.

My views on training for example follow a similar line; Fork lift truck training isn't safety training - it's how to drive a forklift truck training! Oh dear, I'm off again.

My greatest area of expertise is in risk assessment - proper risk assessment, something that delivers informed priorities to managers - you know, the people that actually run the company?

What? They're coming with the cattle prod again............
