I am a happily married man with 2 boys and a granddaughter; I enjoy cycling, swimming & scuba diving. I have enjoyed working in the demolition industry for most of my life from running a demolition company to now operating a successful specialist consultancy providing independent specialist advice, project support & training. I have updated the CIP asbestos & demolition modules, authored the CITB Demolition module, written HSE demolition guidance, part drafted the BS6187:2000 Demolition code and contributed to the new code in 2011. In 1997 I was awarded the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire as an MBE for Services to the Building Industry in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
In 1999 I set up an independent consultancy, Wayne Bagnall Ltd t/a Wayne Bagnall Consulting, providing specialist safety advice and training (UKATA & NDTG) in Asbestos, CDM & Demolition to private industry, nuclear facilities and Government. I am a registered consultant on the HSE OSHCR register and regularly provide training for the HSE.
