Meet Some Of The Team


Peter Field

Owner and Founder,  Where it all began 

Peter Field started Milne Safety (named after his wife Jan’s maiden name) way back in 1978, Peter started within the business with a focus on his knowledge of chemicals (Pig farming and veterinary pharmaceuticals) It became apparent with the implementation of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, that Health and Safety would soon become a large part of what Milne has now become. Peter very soon became a font of knowledge within the Health and Safety fraternity, a member of Faculty of Risk Management, with a diploma in Environmental Management, a member of the Institute of Occupational Health and Safety, I could go on, in fact Peter probably has more letters appertaining to Health and Safety after his name than are currently in the Alphabet. Irrespective of the qualifications, Peter insisted that the main core to the business was, and still remains today, our client base and how Milne has a practical and dare I say it “Common sense” approach to Health and Safety. 

Peter, has now taken a back seat to ensure the business grows with new, fresh ideas but will always remain a valued member of the team, (the Guv’nor) and the person whom has created the values of who and what we are today.
