Stuart Accleton MIDE

For those of you who may not know me I have been employed by Erith for the past ten years, initially as assistance Health & Safety manager through to my current position as Group Health & Safety Director.

As well as this position I also over see the groups nuclear decommission works under the Magnox 10 year Deplant, Demolition & Asbestos Removal framework. During my time at Erith I have also been responsible for tendering, pricing, completing methodologies on complex demolition projects and over project delivery. I’m a Graduate Member of IOSH, ARCA Mangers card holder and a full Member of the IDE.

Having been a member of the institute since 2004 and a full member since November 2007 I was fortunate enough to be elected to the Council of Management in November 2010.

Whilst being on the council for the past two years I have attended eight of the ten council meetings, two seminars, two regional meetings and the AGMs.

Within the council I have sat on the events committee assisting Duncan Rudall where ever possible and been present at all the membership committee meetings. I feel I have made a valuable contribution to the running of the institute during my first two years and would welcome the opportunity to serve the institute for another two years and hopefully beyond.

During the next term I would intend to continue the development of the institute as leading force within the demolition industry across the UK and beyond. Assist Duncan further with events organisation as he take up the roll of Vice President of the institute and assist current and future members with there CPD.
