Health and Safety Officer

Safety first! My job is to keep everyone healthy at work. I develop ways to avoid injuries, keep an eye on safety at our project sites and offices, and investigate any incidents that do happen. Sometimes it's the hidden long-term health risks that are the hardest to spot, but I'm on the case. I want my workmates to go home injury-free!
