About the Chair:
Peter qualified as an Environmental Health Officer in 1980 and has been in continuous practice in that profession ever since, working both in the public and private sectors. He is a Senior Consultant with LRB Consulting Ltd, where he is valued for his experience, his thoughtful approach to client issues, and his practical solutions to their problems.

Peter has numerous published articles and papers and his work on ecological approaches to pest control, management of toxic blue green algae and energy efficient heating and ventilation systems became recommended reading in their appropriate academic and professional fields. He was one of the original joint authors of the Gee Publications, Health and Safety Competent Persons Handbook. He has also been extensively involved in promoting environmental health issues through the media, including regular involvement with newspapers, television and radio. He is perhaps most well-known for his work on the high profile ‘From Hell’ series on Granada TV but has been far more involved in less sensational and more educative media work. He also carried out investigations on behalf of ‘Which?’ magazine.

Despite the academic appearance of the above facts, Peter is a very practical person, having served for several years as a retained fireman and maintaining practical field experience in every aspect of Environmental Health. He is an active supporter of a number of charities and has carried out fieldwork for the charity Water for Kids in the Amazonian region of Peru.
