Gretta has been a member of UCSF for over ten years and took over the role of Chair of the Management Group in January 2021 having previously served as Treasurer and Event Coordinator. 

With a background in microbiology (sorry folks!!!), Gretta took her first safety steps as a H&S Coordinator in the Department of Surgery at Imperial College London, before joining the H&S Services team at University of Reading as the Biological and Scientific Safety Adviser. 

After a brief detour to Swansea University, Gretta moved to Durham University as the Chemical, Biological and Radiation Safety lead and subsequently to Lancaster University to become the Assistant Director of Health and Safety.  

Gretta has a particular interest in behavioural safety and culture, training and local exhaust ventilation.
