These roles have provided an international perspective, with Darren often overseeing safety and environmental audits in locations including Singapore, Africa, North America, Australia and Canada. The assignments required an understanding of safety, health and hygiene standards across offshore, underground and project sites. It was the chance to positively impact people’s safety, environment and wellbeing that he found meaningful, and the experience continues to underpin his principles and commitment to safety and sustainability outcomes for all maritime workers.
