Tess McMahon JP

Introducing our April Member Spotlight, Tess McMahon JP. I entered the Transport sector in early 2007 and have since amassed over 17 years of experience in the field. Beginning my career as an Office Administrator specialising in oversize over mass operations, I’ve gained comprehensive insight into all facets of transport operations, short of driving a heavy vehicle. A significant turning point in my career occurred a decade into my tenure, coinciding with the start of my journey into motherhood. This pivotal moment led me to establish my own business, T&HS Solutions. As an independent operator, I’ve expanded my expertise to include oversize, over mass, dangerous goods handling, bulk chemical transport, and general freight management encompassing flattops, tautliners and tippers. My professional journey has taken me across a spectrum of enterprises, from small to medium family-owned businesses to multinational corporations. Over the past 13 years, I’ve dedicated considerable focus to workplace health and safety (WHS), progressing from initial involvement to full immersion in this critical field. My compliance experience spans 16 years. Currently, I work as a Compliance and WHS Consultant, holding additional qualifications as a drug and alcohol tester, also assisting small companies in navigating the intricate processes of permit acquisition and road access procurement.
