Baines Simmons welcomes Ex-RAF Wing Commander Jeanne Paul to its Consultancy Team
This month sees ex-RAF Wing Commander Jeanne Paul joining Baines Simmons as a specialist Airworthiness and Safety Consultant.
Jeanne was one of the most prominent and influential promulgators for the advancement of error management systems into the MOD. She was awarded the Commander-in-Chief Air Command’s Adrian Ray Memorial Award for making original, outstanding and practical contribution to Flight Safety. She was also responsible for creating a new Station Operations Centre for RAF Wittering in its new role as RAF logistics hub for Air Combat Service Support Units – for which as Team Leader she was awarded Chief-of-Staff Support – Air Officer Commanding’s Team Commendation for meritorious service.
With 19 years’ experience as an Engineer Officer, Jeanne is an influential leader and highly effective manager, recognised by Haddon-Cave QC in the Nimrod Review for researching, promoting and introducing RAF’s Human Factors Maintenance Error Management System, one of the most significant RAF safety initiatives to emerge in recent decades and now a Defence-wide initiative.
Jeanne will initially be part of the Baines Simmons team which is leading 18,000 military service personnel through rigorous cultural safety improvement programmes under the auspices of the MAA. Her expert Human Factors and Error Management skills and experience will also be brought to bear for longer term bespoke consultancy projects for a number of Baines Simmons clients.
