Training of Routine & Operational Inspectors


Prior to joining the company, Chris was involved with the Play Inspection Company for 3 years undertaking his training and gaining experience in the world of playground inspections.

Chris brings a fresh approach to the Play Inspection Company; he graduated from Nottingham University in 2001 with a BEng in Civil Engineering and has been involved in the Construction Industry for 10 years. Chris has most recently been working as a Site Manager on a Network Rail Structures Maintenance Framework Contract. His role has seen him managing up to a hundred maintenance schemes a year with values up to £300,000. He has also had previous experience on major engineering projects as both a Design Engineer and Site Engineer and this experience in the construction industry has given Chris a wealth of Health and Safety knowledge that can equally be applied to the play industry.

It is this diversity that gives Chris an ideal background to ensure that the reputation and service of the Play Inspection Company is maintained through efficient operations management and quality playground inspections. In his role as Operations Manager Chris focuses on meeting our client's needs from receipt of an order to achieving the final product. Chris is also part of our team of RPII qualified Annual Inspectors and spends time on site undertaking all categories of playground inspections.
