Global facilities service provider Atalian Servest has appointed Alistair McCourt as quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE) director, UK and Ireland. McCourt will direct the business on all matters relating to quality, health and safety, environmental safety, food hygiene and fire safety, advising the board of directors in the pursuit of continuously adopting more effective processes. He will also be responsible for developing a multi-skilled QHSE team that can respond to the changing demands of a growing business and extensive client needs.
McCourt joins the team at Atalian Servest after almost 30 years within the health and safety arena and brings a wealth of QHSE expertise and experience from previous roles with Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service, CHG Safety and, most recently, QHSE director for Atalian Servest’s M&E Projects division.
Daniel Dickson, Atalian Servest CEO UK and Ireland, highlights McCourt’s health and safety background as one of the key reasons why he’ll be such an important asset to the business. “We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all staff, suppliers, clients and visitors. To achieve this, it’s fundamental that we embed a culture of health and safety understanding among our staff, rather than just implement processes. Alistair’s extensive experience will be fundamental in achieving this, and I am delighted to welcome him to the team.”
Alistair McCourt said: “Due to the complex nature of facilities management, maintaining a proactive approach to identifying potential risks is a priority at Atalian Servest. I am proud to have been appointed in a role that’s so instrumental to business safety and security. My background within hard services is advantageous and means I have a solid foundation and springboard to continuously review and adopt new processes to improve the safety provision of Atalian Servest.”
