The Company:

My client, a full system life-cycle manufacturer of secure communication systems, antennas, image technology and embedded computing are looking for Health and Safety Advisor to join their growing team in Redditch. Their products can be found transmitting high bandwidth data across hostile terrain, enabling secure ticket sales on trains, processing colossal amounts of data or gathering scientific insight in the cold and crushing depths of the ocean floor! 


Purpose of a Health and Safety Advisor

Reporting to the Health and Safety Officer, this role will contribute to our ongoing commitment of creating a safe and secure work environment.

You will have a good understanding of managing contractors on site, undertaking risk assessments, COSHH assessments, incidents investigation, and ideally have worked with facilities, organising PAT testing and fire prevention maintenance. It is important that you have created and delivered successful training programmes for the general workforce.
