Construction Generalist with Experience in Construction Site Management, Project Management as well as a Health & Safety Expert
Deon van Heerden has a background as a Diploma Engineer (Civil and Mechanical). Added to this he has more than 30 years of ‘in-the-trench’s’ construction experience as well as health and safety and project management knowledge with Murray and Roberts, AECI and PG Bison just to name a few of the organisations he has worked for.
During this time, he was exposed to a variety of large and medium-sized mechanical and civil engineering projects. He left the private sector in January 2011 to start his own consulting company.
He currently consults mainly in the fields of construction project management, site management as well as on a variety of health and safety related issues. Deon is excited about being a part of the Alusani® Course Leader faculty and he says that “any construction project involves a great deal of time and money and proper training is vital to enhance and complete any project on time and on budget. Some construction training topics can be quite dull and boring but I have a proven track record of making all of my courses as interactive, informative and as engaging as possible and this ensures that anytime spent out of the office is maximised.”
To add to his construction experience, Deon is registered with the SACPCMP as a Construction Health and Safety Officer and he is a Graduate Member with SAIOSH (South African Institute of Safety and Health).
