As a group safety manager at one of the UK’s biggest food manufacturing companies, responsible for over 50 manufacturing sites across the UK, Katie was all too aware of the gap in the consultancy market for hands-on site safety support for construction projects. Frustrated at the lack of full-service offering available, Katie wanted to take her health and safety skills and experience to establish a service that would not only advise clients, but also provide the hands-on practical support their projects required.
Hunter Safety Solutions was established in 2012, managing safety for some of the UK’s biggest brands. Katie quickly realised the need to expand and five years later, with continued growing demand, the business now employs over 35 people and has successfully managed the health and safety of some of the most complex and challenging construction projects.
Katie’s undeniable passion for safety and tenacious drive for value-added delivery has enabled the business to grow through repeat business and recommendation alone, something of which she is immensely proud.
Having previously managed a team of 30 health and safety managers, Kirsty is experienced in both health and safety leadership and management along with facilities management in food manufacturing and corporate environments. Results-driven with a hands-on approach to leadership and engagement, Kirsty focuses on delivering improved sustained results, whilst maintaining an excellent standard of customer service.

Experienced with lean integration principles and decisive implementation, Kirsty guides the team to deliver projects confidently in multi-disciplinary environments.
