You will travel up and down the country, in order to share your H&S knowledge and high standards with our staff. If this sounds like fun, then this Health & Safety Advisor vacancy in Stockport could be right for you!
Boels Pit Stop
We are looking for a new Health & Safety Advisor with a passion for solutions and collaboration and a desire to take the next step in their H&S career. This role is field based and will involve regular travelling to our Boels Rental depots in England, Scotland and Wales, supporting management in translating the corporate H&S policy into a structured and systematic approach. How does a typical week look?
On Monday morning, you drive to a depot that needs a safety inspection/audit to be done. You check and complete any risk assessments and speak with the whole team about any non-compliance issues that have been identified. You offer recommendations and training to enable the changes to be made. As our Health & Safety Advisor, your engaging and influencing training captivates the employees so that they understand why they need to make changes and adhere to H&S regulations. You will keep monitoring the depot to ensure that the changes are implemented and that standards are constantly maintained. After all, Boels is renowned for its reputation for safety!
Later in the week, you could be back at the office in Stockport, updating the senior management team about the progress of the H&S strategy, procedures and plans. Naturally, you will have your monthly and yearly reports to hand, so that you can give them accurate information about RIDDOR reportable accidents (including the follow up medical assessments), near misses and your remedial actions, periodic assessments and prevention plans. Health & Safety is in your blood, so articulately presenting this information to the team and answering their questions should come as second nature to you!
Finally, when we need to open a new depot, you will liaise on behalf of Boels, with the relevant governmental departments and request any required environmental permits. Managing risk and ensuring that the correct H&S is in place will always be at the forefront of your mind. This is because our ultimate goal is zero occupational accidents. After all, our employees are our most valuable asset!
