I am looking for multiple Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality (SHEQ) Advisors to join the team, to positively challenge, advise, support, coach and mentor all key stakeholders to aspire to health & safety excellence.

Principal Accountabilities:

Maintain a dynamic and driven approach to promoting and supporting SHEQ across the group and the divisions/depots within own remit.

Be an ambassador for SHEQ and promote out of the box thinking which enables solutions to problems to be identified and implemented effectively within the customers & work crews you support.

Facilitate the development & implementation of policies, procedures and management systems which help reduce risk and support a positive SHEQ culture.

Support and work closely with the various internal customers, divisions, work crews as well as clients and key stakeholders in relation to planning, reviewing, and achieving SHEQ objectives and targets as well as promote continuous improvement and development throughout.

Support the divisions in measuring and monitoring performance against the Group and Divisional SHEQ plans.

Develop and promote positive working relations with all key customers i.e. operational management teams, work crews as well as external stakeholders.

Ensure that the operational teams you support within own remit undertake regular planning and engagement workshops with management teams, operational crews and supply chain partners on a regular basis.

Assist operational management & supervisors in preparing RAMS/job packs and with the briefing of workers and ensure that they are reviewed and updated at regular intervals.

Where appropriate, for example planned high risk work packages, support operational management teams with client and project and subcontractor pre-start workshops so as to ensure that the works are planned and will be executed safely prior to commencement on site.

Where working practices pose a significant risk to health, safety or the environment ensure that the unsafe operation is stopped and inform all relevant parties including senior operational management immediately.

Ensure appropriate support, advice and assistance is always offered and work with the operational management teams within own remit to ensure that any necessary remedial actions are implemented effectively and timely.

Promptly investigate all health, safety and environmental incidents as required by company policies, in accordance with company guidance and timescales. Make known to all relevant parties any significant findings/recommendations and ensure lessons learnt/alerts are captured, developed, and communicated effectively throughout the business.

Assist operational management in closing out all incident investigations promptly and completely and work closely with such people to ensure all investigation recommendations are implemented.

Monitor the operational teams and work crews within own remit and work with them where appropriate to ensure that all staff, including office-based personnel, receive appropriate H&S inductions, training, and information.
