Health & Safety
James Elderfield - Health and Safety/Fire Manager
I have been working in health and safety now for a number of years and have been continuing my education ever since. When this job position became available I grabbed it with both hands as I knew there would be many H & S issues to deal with. I love animals and have two Greyhounds at home. I enjoy supporting my football team Brentford and I play for a local team at the weekends.
Daniel Murray - Health & Safety/Fire Safety Assistant Manager
I studied uniformed public services at Harlow College. I then furthered my education at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, where I gained my bachelor degree in Public Services. Whilst studying, I was involved with several different voluntary jobs, including conducting home fire safety visits at Harlow Fire station and Hertforshire Fire and Rescue service. I wish to use these skills to exceed in my role in health and saftey.
Luke Johnson – Health and Safety Officer
I joined the Medivet Health and Safety Team in 2015. Before joining Medivet, I worked for JPM where I was a regional ops manager and ran the cleaning contracts for Mothercare and Hollywood Bowl. My main role as a health and safety officer is to visit our practices to carry out health, safety and fire inspections. In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with friends, playing and watching a variety of sports.
Paul Richer - Health and Safety Officer
I studied Business at the University of East London where I obtained a Business Studies (BA Hons) degree. Prior to joining the Medivet family, I worked in Health and Safety roles within manufacturing, TV broadcasting and health and safety consultancy. I also worked in Finance for an International bank in the city of London for 5 years. I really enjoy visiting our practices and meeting all of the Medivet staff. I also enjoy providing health and safety assistance to resolve issues affecting staff in practice. In my free time I enjoy meeting up with friends, traveling, going to music festivals and trying to improve my photography!
Bradley Lewis – Fire Safety Officer
I have obtained City and Guilds qualifications in Retail, English, and Maths, as well as a Retail qualification in Health and Safety. Before joining Medivet, I worked for Tesco in various departments including customer service. I enjoy keeping people safe and working with different people, animals, and vets. At home I have one dog, one cat, and five terrapins. I love doing volunteering work and have worked with Prostate Cancer UK, Diabetes Cancer UK, and volunteered in South Africa to help children learn different sports. Outside of work, I enjoy socializing with friends and family, travelling, and playing different sports such as football and cricket.
Gareth Richards – Health & Safety Officer
I hold a B.Sc(Hons) degree in Sports Science (University of Lancaster) and a Higher Professional Diploma in Sport & Recreation Management (Loughborough College). With regards to Health & Safety I hold my IOSH Managing Safely, and my NEBOSH General Certificate along with an NVQ in Spectator Safety and I'm always looking to add to my CPD. Before joining Medivet, I worked for a leisure provider for 15 years, managing various Leisure Centres, then progressing into a Health and Safety / risk and insurance Support role for the organisation that also dealt with Libraries, Parks, Events, and Hospitality. Visiting different locations and meeting new people is always enjoyable and I'm looking forward to increasing my knowledge and interest within the veterinary world and it's always a bonus to see the animals. Along with spending time with family and friends, I enjoy keeping myself pretty active. Running is great for switching off and getting the blood pumping, and I love a game of football to keep that competitive bug switched on.
Carly Hurst - Health and Safety Administrator
I started working here in 2000 when the office was in Hendon and the late Asher Teper was my boss. I worked on Reception and then moved into the Personnel department helping out Elana. We moved to the office in Watford where I continued to work alongside Elana until a position became available in the Health and Safety department. I have two cats called 'Tigger' and 'Dipsy'.
Amanda De-Honri - Health and Safety Administrator
Prior to working at Medivet I was an Order Processing Assistant with a Mobile Phone recycling company. When the job opportunity came up I thought it would be a great chance to increase my knowledge in Health and Safety and improve my administration skills. I am enjoying my time here working with a great team and I look forward to building a career within Medivet.
