This position will see you guide and coach operational teams on all aspects of Zero Harm in combination with developing and reviewing Zero Harm management plans and risk registers to ensure consistency with business needs. Proven experience with conducting ICAM investigations, site audits, rolling out corrective actions and effectively managing subcontractors will be essential. Strong experience conducting risk assessments, implementing risk control strategies and generating safety reports for key stakeholders will be critical.

  • Demonstrated ability to develop Zero Harm management and improvement plans to drive and promote proactive safety awareness programs over a sustained period with subcontractor and employee workforce
  • Ability to work autonomously and “work with others” to enable coaching and developing rather than a “directing nature”

  • The ability to build your professional career in a multi-disciplined business environment
  • A supportive and dynamic team environment
  • A workplace that takes responsibility and accountability for the care and protection of peers, the business, the communities in which we operate, and the environment
