A very exciting opportunity has arose at a leading UK manufacturer for a Health. Safety and Environmental (HSE) Officer.

There is a desire to improve standards across the board and clear buy in from everyone on site, from the top down.
This position, for a HSE Advisor, is with an SME based in Birmingham who have around 150 staff. The risk profile for this site includes everything from machinery, large metal profiles, forklift trucks, chemical handling, to name a few. They have invested, over the last 6 months, thousands of pounds in safety and there is a clear desire to move forward in a proactive way and they have invested hugely in bringing the business to a level of compliance but want to continue on this upwards curve.
The challenge for the successful candidates is to work on creating policies and procedures that are workable and as simple as possible for the staff in layman's terms, that are accessible. You will work towards and go for ISO 14001 and 45001 in the coming year alongside the day to day role of doing audits, risk assessment etc. This is a hands on position, very much factory floor focused, promoting good working practices, deal with suppliers and contractors.
