Hazardex 2019 Conference Presentations - Major Hazards Leadership: Past lessons and future challenges
19 November 2018
Jo will look back over the experiences of her 30 year career, working in and regulating sectors and industries that do great things for individuals, communities, the environment and the economy....but which, without great leadership, also have the potential to cause great harm.
These include healthcare, research, nuclear, chemical and biological industries. There are some great lessons (all too often learned from devastating events) that we ignore at our peril if we are to meet challenges such as EU Exit, climate change and the new political world, as well as to maximise the opportunities presented by government strategies for industry, clean growth, clean air and a thriving environment. This presentation will explore some of those from a personal perspective.
Following a career in medical physics and radiation research, Jo Nettleton joined HSE as a radiation specialist inspector, regulating the use of ionising radiations across medicine, research, education and industry and working on related strategy and policy. Jo moved to join the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate, leading teams to regulate nuclear decommissioning (including environmental impact assessment), conventional health and safety and nuclear safeguards, before joining HSE's Hazardous Installations Inspectorate, leading regulation of biological agents, explosives and chemical industries.
She joined EA in 2015 and is now Deputy Director and Head of Radioactive Substances and Installations Regulation. Jo lives in Southport and is married with a stepson, daughter and two cats.
