Introduction

I'm looking to speak with highly experienced safety / risk assessment and justification professionals with solid high hazard safety case or risk assessment capability in nuclear, explosive, or chemical fields. My client is undergoing a shift from contract to permanent resource and is keen to add senior level safety capability across a range of positions to a team that is at the forefront of scientific, engineering, and technological excellence in the UK.

  • Providing technical information to the production of company policy, guidance and strategy to agreed delivery standards.
  • Producing risk assessments and safety justifications for a range of facilities, including radioactive, explosives and chemical plant.
  • Ensuring the correct risk assessment methods and techniques are used.
  • Providing technical advice for the design and/or delivery of technical training.
  • Coaching graduates, early career and Safety Assessment Specialist Assessors in the use of relevant safety assessment techniques.


The Candidate

A subject matter expert in the assessment of radiological, explosive, chemical, fire or other major hazards in highly regulated industries throughout the lifecycle of projects from concept to decommissioning, you will have demonstrable experience of the planning and production of safety assessments and justifications to exacting quality and delivery standards.

You will be confident to be a critical friend, challenging safety risks and continuously communicating, promoting, and improving company safety assessment standards, with direct guidance input for company strategy and policy in this field, always focusing on ensuring compliance with Site Licence Conditions.
