Job Description

So what do you think about the TV show "You've Been Framed"? 

If you can chuckle along while people are falling off buildings, getting hit in delicate areas with baseballs, trampolining head-first into the side of swimming pools and going out of control through neighbour's fences with lawn mowers then you're probably not the person I'm looking for. 

However if you watch it from behind a cushion in a cold sweat, shaking and periodically shouting "Oh dear lord, NO!" then you've passed the first test. Congratulations. 

I'm looking for the kind of person who takes Health and Safety seriously. The sort of person who will challenge poor practices, implement solid procedures, compile risk assessments and drive a culture of safety within a grass-roots manufacturing environment. 

You'll know the importance of Health and Safety in the workplace and provide / organise training on all aspects of the company's activities. You'll also be vigilant and tenacious enough to reinforce the wearing of PPE by all employees at all times. 

So, if your initial instinct is to reach for a Permit to Work rather than a video camera when someone gets a set of stepladders out then I'd love to hear from you on 01257 244740.
