I confirm that I have known David Bailey for two years, whilst working with him for MOQ in Qatar during which time he has carried out the role of OFME.

At all times I have found David to be dependable, reliable, hard-working, conscientious and pro-active in the work he caries out.
David has always maintained a high standard of safety in relation to his work and can be relied on to raise and resolve issues as he finds them. During his time as part of the supervisory team David has participated and given a high level of input into daily planning meetings, 90 day planning meetings and has also frequently been involved in the design and review of risk assessments related too his work.

I'm happy to provide further information if required.
