Mark Newman


Mark was born in Goole and apart from a couple of years living in Doncaster he has lived here all of his life – it’s a town he loves and is always happy to see the Goole landmarks when returning from anywhere.

Mark has been involved in Health and Safety for 24 years, his first opportunity to get on the ladder being with a Training Provider where he first took up the role and completed his NEBOSH Certificate.

In my career in Health and Safety, I have worked with a range of clients across many sectors – railway, construction, power generation, chemical manufacture and processing, civil engineering, retail, restaurants and licensed premises.

The MNA business grew from several years as Mark was H&S Manager for a medium sized construction company. He took the decision to set up the consultancy business with the said construction company being its first Client. It was soon evident that another body was needed and having known Dave many years he knew he was looking for a ‘new venture’ and hence grew the partnership.

Professionally Mark is known as the ‘Health and Safety Guy’ which, is a hat he is quite happy to wear – often needing to dispel the myths of a ‘typical health and safety guy’! Mark would like to think his clients say that he is a huge benefit to their business and their personnel. He is passionate and willing to go out of his way to help MNA’s clients and believe Health and Safety isn’t about statistics, it’s about people and them being able to go to work and go home intact without injury, ill health or being killed.

Marks biggest passion is his family, his children, his dogs and family life – all being together, which doesn’t happen as often enough as he would like, is like breathing fresh air and what life is all about.

His favourite way to spend time would be with his family and dogs walking along the beach, either in Northumberland or Filey, enjoying the sea air and the wind, topped off by a wonderful fish and chips and a mug of tea. If he was being selfish – he would be out on his motorbike with no particular destination in mind just enjoying the ride – coupled with the compulsory fish and chip. This ‘Mark’ time isn’t always achievable as he has an ever present pillion passenger in his daughter Robyn!

Mark has been a keen sportsman all of his life and played rugby for Goole, Yorkshire and the North of England. When his rugby playing stint ended, he got involved in coaching rugby, both juniors and seniors – with Dave, his business partner, as well as doing other rugby club activities to help the cause. One of his most satisfying achievements was completing a coast to coast cycle ride with Dave from Morecambe to Scarborough within the day to raise funds for Goole RUFC – a most highly satisfying achievement.
