Memphis, TN, April 10, 2023 - EnSafe, a global provider of environmental, engineering, health and safety and technology services with an unparalleled track record that extends into the utility industry, is excited to announce the recent addition of Brooke Sinclair, CHMM, CSP, Senior Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Regulatory Specialist and Utilities National Market Sector Lead; and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) expert Joyce Barkley, Senior Environmental Scientist, to our firm. Both Brooke and Joyce bring a wealth of knowledge that is particularly useful as EnSafe increases its foothold in the utility industry.
Brooke has 20 years of electric distribution experience working in the EHS field as well as utility operations, maintenance, construction, and engineering. She not only understands EHS requirements but how they impact utility operations and construction.
“Brooke’s 20 plus years serving and leading in increasingly senior management roles in the utilities sector brings invaluable insight and expertise to EnSafe’s already strong utilities solutions group,” says Ginny Davis, Vice President of Business Development. “We are excited to see the growth and enhancements that Brooke will bring nationwide!”
Joyce brings more than 27 years of environmental and planning experience with a focus on protected species assessments, aquatic resources, public outreach, environmental justice, and grant writing, along with other NEPA resource areas at the federal, state, and local levels. The recent passing of the federal infrastructure bill and an influx of governmental private-sector contract awards has increased the need and opportunities for these particular services, and Joyce’s expertise will enable EnSafe to meet those demands.
“We are so excited to have Joyce on our team,” said Paul Stoddard, PG, Vice President of Field Services. “Her extensive understanding of NEPA regulations and requirements and her broad range of experience will prove to be an asset as we continue to pursue federal, state, and local work.”
Bolstered by the addition of Brooke and Joyce, EnSafe is well-equipped to handle both public and private-sector projects focused on improving utilities infrastructure, developing and refreshing behavior-based safety programs, industrial hygiene sampling, PCB program compliance and remediation, and program development.
For more than 40 years, EnSafe has provided cost-effective, creative solutions to its clients most challenging health and safety issues. From developing new or updating existing EHS programs and conducting risk assessments and inspections to environmental services in support of land development and site operations and maintenance, EnSafe leverages technology to provide tactical tools for daily tasks, overall environmental support, and general worker safety.
Beyond EnSafe’s wide-array of environmental health and safety services for utilities customers, EnSafe offers specific skills relevant to the electrical industry, including linear projects, microgrid and substation due diligence assessments, permitting, and decommissioning, safety and environmental training, and brownfield support and consulting.
