    Queen recognises two safety workers

    A woman who has worked all her life to improve transport safety has been recognised in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list.

    Caroline Wake, a member of The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), was given an OBE for her services to transport safety and the community of Kent.

    Another IOSH member, Andrew Butt, was also awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for services to public safety.

    From chemist to tunnels

    Caroline, who worked as Railway Safety Directorate at the Office of Rail and Road (ORR), was head of the UK team for the Channel Tunnel Safety Authority.

    Starting life as a chemist, she became a factory inspector at Health and Safety Executive and later managed the inspection team that regulated Transport for London.

    She has worked on a number of projects at the ORR and now heads the Channel Tunnel safety team.

    Caroline, who is retiring at the end of March, said: “I am humbled and very honoured to receive an OBE. The letter came out of the blue. It is a wonderful way to end my career.”

    Volunteering services

    Andrew has worked for nearly two decades in occupational safety and health. Most recently, he has been with the National Probation Service’s Southeast and East of England division.

    Andrew has also volunteered considerably in his spare time, delivering blood and medical supplies to hospitals, providing first-aid at public events for St John Ambulance, and helping out with the Volunteer Fire and Rescue Service at stock car races.

    He said: “I was taken aback when I heard that I was going to receive the award. I feel very humbled by it.”
