About Ken Rock

Ken is Domino Risk Management Ltd’s Director who, after qualifying, spent twenty years as an Environmental Health Officer in general public health and law enforcement.  After a three year contract for the Zambian Government (liaising with the WHO) he worked for local government in England specialising in food safety, health & safety and health promotion.  He spent three years as a Principal Officer with one of the largest district councils in England formulating and administering food hygiene and health & safety enforcement policies and a further three years developing health promotion initiatives (where an exhibition mounted by his team received a national merit award for home safety).

Since leaving local government, Ken has run a health & safety and food hygiene consultancy dedicated to providing a high quality, professional service and delivering excellent value. He has undertaken contracts for government, local authority, national and multi-national organisations but now concentrates on helping small, local organisations.

Ken is a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health and a Chartered Member of the Institute of Safety & Health.

Why Domino?

According to the “Domino Theory of Accident Causation” people are injured because of a sequence of events similar to a line of dominoes falling over.  These are:

  • Poor management/planning
  • Personal faults (poor training or behaviour)
  • Unsafe acts or conditions
  • Accident happens
  • Person is hurt

If the first three issues are addressed and removed from the workplace, at least 80% of accidents can be avoided. These principles also apply to food safety and hygiene.
