Caroline derives a great deal of satisfaction from exploring new technologies in her role as an environment, safety and risk management consultant: “My projects to date have required me to look to the future and understand the challenges we face building and designing for a diverse population whose needs are changing. It is very exciting. I research what we might use and work collaboratively with colleagues overseas.”
“Our projects help users with real life, daily issues.”

My favorite projects:

“The largest Nuclear Fusion project in the world has enabled me to travel and establish Human Factors integration at the very beginning of a project.”
2. Operational Resilience – London Underground

3. Culinary Support center, design and layout - a University campus, US
“We assisted the safety team in the US to provide Human Factors input and assessment on the design and layout of a university campus catering facility.”
