Welcoming his appointment, Professor Taylor said:
"I am delighted to be appointed to the HSE Board. This is a challenging time for health and safety and I want to play my full part in helping the Board to meet those challenges. Throughout my career as a safety professional I have always been impressed by how much people can achieve simply by listening to and learning from one another, and by working together to meet common objectives. I look forward to working with the professional bodies in that same spirit, to help deliver the health and safety improvements we all wish to see."
