Safety Professional | Risk Management Consultant | Explorer | Disaster Management Strategist | Technical Geek | Visionary | Problem Solver | Visual Learner | Adaptable | Self Motivated

I am passionate about safety and believe that we humans, don’t do things simply. We don’t make decisions based on features and benefits only. We make decisions based on emotion, “gut feel” and a promise to keep us "Safe".

I teach, make aware employees, give training and educate personnel and professionals on how to create Healthier and Safer Environment at work so that they understand the importance of workplace safety and move them toward their core goals. My understanding of the intricacies of Health & Safety as well as my educational background provide a strong foundation to articulate safety at workplace and drive initiatives ahead to cater HSE performance.

On the creative side, I write articles, columns in newspapers and give reviews on different platforms.

Specialities include Onshore Oil & Gas, Incident Investigation, Root Cause Analysis, Process Safety, Hazard Mitigation, Project Planning, Risk Assessment, HAZOP, Strategic Planning, Upstream Process, Public speaking/Presentations and Social media. I’m very good at Time Management too.
