Meet the team

Louise Hosking

Louise Hosking MD, Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner

Over the last 23 years in this industry I have learnt the importance of great customer service, providing effective SHE leadership and removing the fear felt by managers and employees to make their own decisions. We build extremely close relationships with all our clients, implementing arrangements which are practical and workable. When standards are raised, it has a positive effect across the whole organisation. Employees take greater responsibility and feel more engaged in the process whilst owners and managers feel more in control. We find solutions, not problems, and we do it with personality!

Out of work, I try to keep fit; I look forward to an annual Sailing Holiday with my husband who grew up sailing a mirror dinghy on the Solent and is now teaching me the ropes! I love long summer cycle rides. One day I hope to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats. I like finishing the working week with a G&T, and spending time with my amazing circle of friends who live in the UK and abroad.

Christine McBride

Christine McBride Operations Manager

With over 20 years working within business management and education (predominantly in California), I’ve come to realise the importance of believing in your product or service. I believe client relationships are key, and high standards an absolute must. I love working with Louise and the rest of the team, and am happy to be associated with such a fantastic group of professionals and clients.

As a native Californian, I am naturally drawn to outdoor activities and love cycling, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and taking my miniature Schnauzer out for long walks. I’ve discovered a new love of travelling (no surprise there), and am enjoying my new life in England with my gorgeous daughters and wonderful new husband.

Michele Jarvis

Michele Jarvis Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner

Through my working life I have worked in a range of industries from Aerospace, Construction, Foundry, Healthcare and Retail. This diverse experience is reflected in my mission “to change peoples perception of Health and Safety into one that inspires and improves their working environment and personal lives” and that Safety and Health should work with a company’s processes – holistically and intelligently supporting everyone during their working life.

Away from work, my partner and I are both large “petrol-heads” and between us we have a range of Cars and Motorbikes. The most influential “toy” is our Morgan which features in a monthly magazine article called “follow that car” in Mog Magazine. During my spare, spare time I also enjoy growing my own vegetables and eating them, as cooking and eating is my other passion.

Philippa Goodfield

Philippa Goodfield Chartered Safety and Health Practitioner

With 18 years experience in Health and Safety within the Property, Waste, and Transport industries, I offer all aspects of safety and environmental consultancy from safety management system implementation, auditing, risk assessments and general or bespoke training courses.  My driving force is to ensure businesses comply with relevant health and safety legislation in a manner which becomes natural and involves all levels of staff, and helping people to see the true benefit of good safety management.

When not working, I like to keep fit and have a passion for cycling, scuba diving, and horseback riding.

Emma Flatt

Emma Flatt Customer Services Officer

With an extensive background in the NHS and further ten years experience as a Safety Administrator within the Pharmaceutical industry, I relish working with the entire Hosking Associates team. I’m really excited to be working with such a terrific group of exceptional professionals who I’m not only learning a lot from, but also broadening my experiences within Health and Safety. Always striving to offer a high quality service, whilst offering expertise within the industry, I thoroughly enjoy my job and the opportunity I have to speak with our clients on a regular basis.  Excellent customer service remains my highest priority.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and young son. Travelling the world, and enjoying fine wine and food, fall heavily in my list of interests.

Isis Anders

Isis Anders Administrative Assistant

As a business student from American now settled in the UK, with a focused goal of entrepreneurship, I am extremely happy to be part of the team at Hosking Associates with Louise & Christine acting as my mentors. To this end, I’m learning from an excellent example of how a company should be structured, with a strong emphasis on quality, customer service, and high standards.

When not working, I love roaming around and discovering London, travelling, going out with my friends, and all forms of exercise – especially zip wire obstacle courses, skating, swimming, football, and dancing. At home, I enjoy cooking and am currently learning the art of a perfect curry!
