DUBLIN, January 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Paul Tierney, Technical Director of Health & Safety Consultancy & Training for Phoenix Safety Services Ltd., was recently named a VIP member of Worldwide Branding. This special distinction honors individuals who have shown exceptional commitment to achieving personal and professional success.
Mr. Tierney has 27 years of professional experience, with nine years as a technical director of Phoenix Safety Services Ltd. Over the years, he has established himself as an expert in risk assessment within the workplace, as well as in providing solutions to senior management through legal briefings. On a daily basis, he is responsible for providing a range of consultancy advice and training services to customers in many different fields and industries. Prior to joining Phoenix Safety Services Ltd., Mr. Tierney worked as a technical director and health and safety consultant for Phoenix Safety Services Ltd. Cork & Dublin and Eazysafe.com. At Phoenix, he provided all consultants and trainers with support and direction in the development of a health and safety consultancy service. For Eazysafe, he provided technical and statutory support in their professional services to clients.
A computer literate professional, Mr. Tierney is proficient in the use of Microsoft Windows, Word, Works, PowerPoint and Excel packages. He has designed a range of Phoenix documentation, brochures and website content, and he has a sound knowledge of hardware, network, intranet, internet, and transfer of data using various technologies. Mr. Tierney has a good understanding of how information technologies can add value to processes and be implemented into emergency management & response services.
Through his interpersonal awareness, Mr. Tierney has developed a high level of understanding of the mechanisms of social and business communications throughout the various positions he has held. He is able to recognize potential sources of interpersonal conflict at an early stage and work to mitigate them.
Mr. Tierney set up Phoenix Safety Services Ltd. in 1999 after spending 10 years working as a safety consultant for other health and safety companies, and 18 years working as a safety officer and safety manager for multinationals, including Befab Safeland, Westinghouse and Rosemount. He is 62 years old, married, has twin children and lives in Carrigaline in County Cork, Ireland.
Mr. Tierney believes that in order to operate as the highest grade health and safety consultant possible, no problem can be too big or too small, and one must realize that a solution exists for every problem - it's only a matter of finding it and applying it to the problem at hand. He stands out because of his professionalism, attitude, experience and being able to listen. His greatest career achievement is defending his clients in the preparation of information in defending a legal claim in court for a bogus workplace accident and being successful in proving there was no negligence on behalf of his client. No payment was awarded, and no addition insurance costs were incurred by his client.
Looking back, Mr. Tierney attributes his success to his customer service skills, understanding customers' problems and being able to design solutions as well as always being available to his clients. He became involved in his profession because he started his professional career with All American Engineering, moved to Westinghouse, which was sold to Rosemount Corporation, where he worked for 27 years as a facility coordinator, then manager. While he was there, he became involved with the health and safety areas, and his interest grew rapidly. He received an HND in health and safety in 1991, and then moved to NIFAST Ltd. as a senior health and safety consultant, where he stayed for almost nine years. Finally, he went on to start his own business, which has been a very nice natural progression of success for him. The highlight of his career was setting up his business in 1999.
Mr. Tierney received a national diploma in health and safety from the University of Limerick in 1990. He is a member of the Irish Institute of Training and Development, Irish Occupational Safety and Health, and the National Institute of Safety Management. In years to come, Mr. Tierney plans to develop the company by bringing on more staff members and training them, which will allow him to spend less time in the field and concentrate on building other areas of the business.
