Logistics Profile - Liam Pegg (Health and Safety Coordinator and Trainer)

Name: Liam Pegg

Job title: Health and Safety Coordinator and Trainer

Company name: Palletline

Time with current company: 7 years


Tell us a little about your career journey and what made you choose to work in logistics:

I left school at 16 and began working as a labourer before being put forward for an apprenticeship at Palletline.

That led me into the role I’m in today in which I support Palletline HSEQ Manager to ensure our network operates safely and to a high standard and train the next generation of fork lift drivers through our in-house apprenticeship scheme.


What does an average day at work look like for you?

Every day is busy but varied. My role encompasses a range of responsibilities that can see me delivering our comprehensive health and safety induction to all new starters one day, visiting members throughout the UK to carry out our annual audits another and working with our apprentices on the next stage of their manual training the next.


What are the challenges of your role?

Our current intake of apprentices is the most we’ve had in one year and with an age range of 16 – 24, training and mentoring them to suit their individual learning needs can be a challenge.

Additionally, the logistics industry is fast-paced which often means policy, legislation and best-practice changes regularly – this can sometimes require a quick roll-out of training or changes to our own policies to ensure we are all operating in line with new standards.


What do you like / enjoy about your role?

It is a sizeable role, but I love the challenge and I’m young enough to remember what it was like for the young people joining us as trainees, so I think I can offer them a perspective that’s similar to their own. Palletline has really brought me out of my shell.


What would you say to someone that is considering starting a career in the logistics industry?

In my experience the sector is a very supportive environment for young people starting their careers and there is a range of routes in through an impressive range of apprenticeships, graduate schemes and junior positions.
