George Allcock

George was involved with health and safety for over 50 years, firstly with Lucas Industries, then GKN and finally as a volunteer for BHSEA. As a key member of BHSEA for over 37 years George fulfilled many roles including Management, Council, SGUK Representative, and Chair twice over, the last and most recent time being for eight long and successful years. George steered the Association through many changes and even a pandemic. He saw through the purchase and sale of BHSEA premises and was instrumental in the development of the Investment Policy and re-definition and implementation of the management structure that has led to the continuing success of BHSEA today.  

In the words of the former BHSEA Vice-Chair David Hughes “George was a stalwart member of BHSEA He had a passion for arranging, supporting and managing other health and safety events and meetings on a local and national stage to help promote health and safety. He also had a passion for improving people’s knowledge and awareness of health and safety.” 

George will be sadly missed by all at BHSEA
