Laura Hogg
HR and Internal Operations Manager, Beaumont Traffic Management Ltd

Having spent 10 year working as a Scenes of Crimes Officer alongside various police forces I made the decision to leave this field and move to Beaumont Traffic Management. Having joined the team in 2016 my role was formalised in 2017 with an appointment as HR and Internal Operations Manager.

 

During my tenure I have formalised HR systems and processes, in addition I have led the modernisation of the workplace with paperless working and improved IT systems being introduced. In order to make the step into this area, formal qualifications were needed and I have recently completed a Masters degree in business administration.

 

As a designated mental health first aider I regularly run workshop sessions in order to promote mental health issues and help build support networks for employees. To fully understand the risks that we as an industry expose our workers to I recently undertook a study into the use of modern Barrier-based risk management techniques using the BowTie methodology. This study centred around the key issue of driver incursion and was aimed at reducing harm to all parties and raising awareness through effective communication of risk. This work has allowed me to take part in the Stamp it Out initiative.
