I am a highly organised, outcome-driven and motivated professional with solid experience in Health and safety.
In my present role, I am responsible for developing and implementing OH&S and risk management initiatives, both site-specific and across the business. It is my responsibility to ensure that all OH&S systems are up-to-date and adhered to by all employees. I also conduct hazard identification, risk assessments, safety audits and accident and injury investigations, and assess workers’ compensation claims.

A big part of my job is to conduct OH&S training across the business, covering chemical and manual handling, first aid, PPE, emergency procedures and other safe work practices in line with industry codes of practice. My experience in training has really developed my communication skills, enabling me to communicate with people at all levels of the business.

I am fully qualified, with a SAMTRAC, ASHEPP, IRCON, RCAT. I am currently busy with my international diploma (NEBOSH) as part of my commitment to professional development. I make a point of keeping up-to-date with changes to OH&S legislation,.

I believe that I would be a perfect fit for your company and that I could make a valuable contribution to your business. I am driven to help organisations make their workplaces as safe and healthy as possible, and I thrive in a stimulating and dynamic environment.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further
