Larry has worked in the construction industry for almost 40 years. Over 30 of those years have been spent in the specialised area of scaffolding. His scaffolding career started in London in the early eighties. Whilst a scaffolder in London he worked on many large and prestigious contracts including the National Gallery, Heathrow Airport, Aldermaston Nuclear Power station and some high profile Embassies where high quality work and stringent safety procedures went hand in hand.
Larry qualified as a CITB scaffold instructor in the UK in 1998 and has been involved in training and consultancy since then. Whilst working with major scaffolding companies, he attended regular NASC meetings in the UK and was invited on to their training wing (ASITO).
As a SOLAS-approved trainer, Larry has carried out work for major state bodies all over Ireland including SOLAS, ESB, Irish Rail, CIF, NIE, and Veolia Water.
As scaffold training is a specialist area, he has also worked for all the major training companies in Ireland including Safety Solutions, Shorcontrol, CMSE, HSS, Holland Safety, and National Training Solutions in Navan.
