Dangerous Goods Officer
Hello there, my name is Martin Williams and I joined Cargologicair in June 2020 after having spent over 31 years with Virgin Atlantic Cargo in an Operations Specialist and Training Development role. I am also a qualified auditor and a CIPD qualified Trainer in learning and development.
My role here at CLA involves the management and oversight within all areas of the dangerous goods operation in alignment with regulatory requirements and internal and external post holder processes.
I have had peripheral involvement with the carriage of dangerous goods since the tender age of 16 at BCAL (for those old enough to remember the Airline) and throughout my Aviation career up until the present day in which this area is now my primary focus.
To some, dangerous Goods is not the most dynamic of subjects however through my extensive airfreight experience my vision and passion is not only to create an awareness of the Dangerous Goods product but to also try and embed a learning and creative influence to everything we do within Operational areas and dangerous goods learning.
I have been extremely lucky to have been able to travel the globe over the years delivering Operational Training in places such as Lagos, Nigeria to Sydney, Australia in which I have always tried to create a fun learning environment and I hope to continue this throughout my career with CLA.
I am very much an operational soul at heart and love being around like minded people and aircraft are my passion and that’s why I am so thankful I was able to continue my career here at CLA and make new friends and colleagues along the way.
Like most people today, I am working from home during office hours however being a 24/7 operation my mobile is always on to provide guidance or support outside of these times.
