Health & Safety Officer Jobs
Health & Safety Officers have an important role. In some construction firms the safety officer may be an officer or senior manager of the company. Their primary responsibility is to keep the loss of human and property resources to a minimum. A health and safety officer must be an individual capable of managing jobsite safety by providing safety training for employees, inspecting jobsites, correcting safety hazards found during regular inspections, managing worker's compensation insurance processes, and ensuring that the company is in compliance with required Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety and health standards.
A good officer understands OSHA regulations and how they work in construction. The role also requires basic knowledge of construction operations, materials, and methods. Most have previous construction experience and a keen interest in construction safety.
Why become a Health & Safety Officer?
The high cost of health care and expenses related to jobsite injuries, as well as the high cost of replacing and/or repairing a company's resources including its property, equipment, and tools is prompting many construction companies to hire health & safety officers. They can often advance to higher level management positions either in their company or in others.
Starting salaries typically range from £24,000 to £32,000. Those with experience such as Head of Health and Safety can earn salaries up to £80,000.
