Brian Shears

Operations Director

After completing college in 1999 where I studied A Level Sciences and Geology, I started my working career with Southern Testing Ltd, who specialise in Geo-Technical site investigations. My role here was wide and varied and involved carrying out site studies using varying techniques for foundation design, road design and or contamination remediation design. 

During this time, I attended university where I obtained an HNC in Building studies and HND in Building Surveying as well as obtaining other specific courses relating to Health and Safety such as NEBOSH Construction certificates, CITB courses, confined space management, asbestos surveying courses etc.

My career path within this company then took a change towards the Management of Health and Safety.

From this, I then joined In-Line Safety Ltd. in 2009 as a Health and Safety Consultant with main duties including but not limited to carrying out Fire risk assessments, asbestos surveys, management audits, compliance audits writing risk assessments and method statements for construction projects.

In-Line Safety Ltd. was part of Survey and Construction Group of companies, and in 2013 I assisted in a management buyout along with the Managing Director Mike Gray and Existing Director Jules Byrd. Therefore, as of 1st March 2013 I became Operations Director for In-Line Safety. 

When I am not at work, my main enjoyment is spending time with my Wife and 2 Children. We live on the outskirts of Ashdown Forest in Sussex in a small rural village which offers a very quiet and relaxing environment. I am a keen golfer and have started paragliding lessons!
