Construction work can be complex and detailed, however for Peter, affectionately known as ‘Thommo’, ensuring that every project is safety, quality and environmentally compliant is as simple as ‘ABC’ – Always Be Careful!

As Manager of WHSE and QA Services for the FDC Group, Peter has the ‘FDC’; the focus determination and commitment to drive and promote compliance across all four FDC divisions; Construction, Fitout, Technologies and Mechanical Services and he engages all employees to fulfill FDC’s legislative compliance obligations.

Peter is the Chairman of the FDC WHS Committee and coordinates regular meetings and on site safety inspections to assist, guide, educate and mentor all staff on compliance related issues via training and consultation.

The FDC Integrated Management System (IMS) is the primary barometer of the Company’s accreditation system, and as such, Peter coordinates all external and internal auditing reviews of the system, to ensure accreditation is achieved and maintained.

Access to up-to-date compliance news, standards, and information is an essential part of Peter’s role, and his extensive network of industry memberships and associations, including the Safety Institute of Australia, WorkCover and the Master Builders Association, ensures he always knows of the latest developments within the industry.

A key performance indicator for Peter is his ability to share the compliance message “safety is everyone’s responsibility” to all stakeholders.  His dedication to this important aspect of his role was formally recognised in 2012 when FDC shared the NSW Leadership in Safe Work award from WorkCover.
