FMX editor joins WorkplaceLaw

25 February 2009

Workplace Law Group has made three senior appointments to strengthen its team of expert advisors and consultants in health & safety, and the built environment, and for its online and print publications.

Highly experienced journalist Sara Bean becomes Managing Editor, with overall responsibility for all of Workplace Law’s online and print content. For the past five years, Sara has been Editor of facilities management industry magazine FMX, and prior to that she was editor of Reed Business Information titles Employer’s Law and Occupational Health Journal.

Simon Toseland becomes Workplace Law’s first Head of Health and Safety, a new role created to manage the burgeoning health and safety training, consulting and support business that is driving much of the company’s growth. Simon was previously Principal Health and Safety Consultant at Turner & Townsend, and before that worked in health and safety roles at Anglia Planning Supervisors and in the leisure sector.

Building control specialist Mark Hillier joins Workplace Law as Associate Director, Built Environment, where he will be responsible for growing a new business unit from scratch to meet the demands of architects, surveyors and building managers. Mark has particular expertise in building regulations, notably in advising clients on compliance solutions in means of escape. He was formerly a Head of Training and Development at Butler & Young Group.

All three join Workplace Law Group from March 2009.

Commenting on the new arrivals, Workplace Law Group Managing Director David Sharp said:

“Getting guys of this calibre is really exciting news for us. I’ve known Sara and Mark for a number of years and have always hoped we might be able to do something together. As soon as we met Simon, we knew he was made of the right stuff for Workplace Law: knowledgeable, but keen to learn more; enthusiastic, friendly and professional.

“The coming year promises to be our most challenging and exciting yet, with ambitious plans to grow our business in health and safety, the built environment, and employment relations. The current financial climate is going to make it all the more interesting!”
