Staff Profile – Dave Kearney

24th November 2015

Name: Dave Kearney

Job title: Scaffolding H&S Advisor


Talk me through a typical day in the office/work for you?

Usually up early to beat the traffic and get cracking on whichever site or client I’m booked with and I aim to grab a cup of coffee over a chat with the client before starting. I am predominantly inspecting scaffolds at present but I’m also becoming more and more involved with accident investigations and document reviews so my days can be very different.


What is your favourite part of the job?

Meeting so many different people and trying to make a difference.


If you didn’t work at Simian what would be your dream job?

I’ve always wanted to be a (famous) guitarist in a rock band.


When you aren’t in work where are most likely to be found?

In the shed or garden or more likely in front of Call of Duty.


Where would your ideal holiday be and why?

Anywhere warm, to get away from the UK winter.


Now for the quick fire round…

Tea or coffee?

I’m easy! However it comes.


Crisps or chocolate?

Definitely chocolate.


Beer or wine?

Neither, cider is my preference!


Celebrity look-alike?

When I was younger and still had dark hair maybe Keanu Reeves (so I’m told anyway).


A weekend in the country or a city break?



Rugby or football?

Football – I’m a Southampton boy, so it’s good to see the Saints doing well at the moment and back in the Premier League where they belong.


Early morning or late nights?

Early mornings.


Pub or wine bar?
