“I am passionate about making a difference to the health of workers."

Ron is the Director of TestSafe and Engineering Services at SafeWork NSW within Better Regulation and Department of Finance, Services and Innovation.

Ron leads TestSafe’s provision of mechanical and electrical testing and certification services to manufacturers of equipment used in the underground coal industry. TestSafe also provides chemical analytical services to determine if workers have been exposed to chemicals and dusts through solvents, paint, glue and silica used in the workplace.

“I am passionate about making a difference to the health of workers. My role enables me to have a direct impact on improving safety conditions in NSW workplaces either through developing legislation or working with industry to develop solutions.”

Ron and his team of engineers support SafeWork Inspectors through the provision of expert technical advice on preventing or investigating incidents that occur in the workplace such as crane collapses, scaffolding, and machine guarding or electrical hazards.

“I enjoy working with my team, who are all working together with industry to prevent workers and the public from being harmed.”

Ron is also a sporting aficionado and supports the Parramatta Eels, as well as the Australian cricket team.
