About Us

We at Orchard HSE Ltd are dedicated to improving leadership and to prompting excellence in all aspects of Health, Safety and Environmental Management by providing support of the highest standard to all clients.

Delivery is mainly carried out by the Principle Consultant, who is a highly qualified and experienced individual, but we can call upon other qualified and experienced individuals to assist.

Rob Charlesworth

Principle Consultant


Rob has over twenty years’ experience of managing Health, Safety and the Environment from a line manager’s perspective, in an Upper Tier COMAH site that belongs to the global stainless steel manufacturer, Outokumpu. Over the years he has researched, developed and implemented systems and procedures in order to satisfy the requirements of the Competent Authority, because he couldn’t find any local consultant who could assist.

In addition as one of Outokumpu Group’s Senior Professionals, he has been heavily involved in defining their safety strategy and safety leadership programme over the last few years and has been the Safety Advisor to the UK Board of Directors.

Furthermore, Rob is a registered Occupational Safety and Health Consultant on the OSHCR website. Additionally, his profile on OSHCR can be found by clicking here.
