CPA names Kevin Minton as director
By Sarah Ann McCay09 April 2013
The UK’s Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has promoted Kevin Minton to the role of director, reporting to Colin Wood, the CEO, and to CPA’s governing council.
Prior to his promotion, Mr. Minton held the post of senior manager at the CPA for five years. As such, he has been involved in the full range of CPA activities, with a special emphasis on health and safety issues and representing the CPA to other bodies.
Mr. Minton was instrumental in forming the Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group in 2009, and since then has co-ordinated its activity, most recently chairing the working group behind the new Good Practice Guide on Medical Fitness for Plant Operators.
His new role as director of CPA will see him taking on a bigger role within the organisation and reinforcing his liaison work with Government bodies and industry associations. He will continue to represent CPA on CONIAC, the HSE’s leading policy committee for the construction sector, and will also act as the main link with other industry bodies.
Mr. Minton is also chair of the European Rental Association’s Safety and Sustainability Committee and is actively involved in the Lighthouse Club as chair of the Midlands Branch.
