About Paul Gear

Paul Gear is an award-winning business management systems expert providing affordable and innovative solutions for all types and sizes of businesses across Australia. His business has developed, implemented, managed and audited a wide range of business management systems for businesses from 10 to 1200 employees across diverse industry groups such as engineering, construction, mining, government, hospitality, professional trades and business services.

His experience includes developing greenfield and brownfield enterprise health & safety, quality management, risk management, governance and compliance obligation frameworks that provide oversight, transparency and assurance for business owners and managers.

Supported by a highly qualified, experienced and dedicated team of specialists, we ensure your business governance is compliant with legislation and standards, that your business risks are effectively managed and the health and safety of your people is protected.

Paul is non-Indigenous and is known as the ‘engine room’ of the business. Paul catches Petina’s crazy ideas and influxes of work and manages the workflow process and the team.

Paul was raised 3rd generation defence forces, so also experienced a life of constantly moving, but unlike Petina moving towns or states, Paul moved across the globe. Paul’s own involvement in the Navy has seen him travel the world extensively, including third world and war-torn countries.
Paul has won National and State awards and is recognised widely as a safety risk and compliance expert! Paul can read, understand, interpret, apply and educate others on all things compliance in a way that is second to none.

Paul’s primary focus is on helping people to understand their obligations so they don’t end up in jail, with huge fines, or with someone significantly hurt.

Although Paul is non-Indigenous, he embraces and respects our Indigenous people as if they were his own family.

Paul’s hobbies include: traveling out on country, spending time with his sons and wild child granddaughter; riding motorbikes, 4wd’ing, jetskiing and camping.
