Peter Wilson BSc, MSc, MIOA

Technical Director

An incredibly experienced engineer and founder of the INVC with a rare talent for developing innovative engineering solutions to problems across many industries. He is also known as a very effective communicator, having developed the IOSH noise and HAVS competency (and many other) courses.

He is much in demand at conferences worldwide as an entertaining (and sometimes controversial) speaker. This is perhaps associated with his performing stand-up comedy as an occasional hobby...

Steve Wray BSc, MSc, MIOA

Managing Director

A specialist in environmental noise, Steve has been with INVC since 2002. He is also a tutor on the IOSH noise and vibration training courses.

When he is not exploring mountains (both over and under them), he likes to enter stupidly long running races.


Business Develop. Director

Originally from the noise instrumentation manufacturing industry, moving on to measurement and control in noise and vibration at INVC was a natural progression.

Involved in business development and running training courses, she's a regular speaker at conferences on noise and HAVS to push for more effective management of employee risk.
