Health & Safety Officer

At Hauraki District Council we have a focus on safety and wellbeing where we put people first, and our aim is to have everyone safe and well at the end of the day. To help us achieve this we are looking to add a Health and Safety Officer to our team.

Working under the guidance of a Health and Safety Advisor, this new role will offer variety across all spheres of the organisation – assisting and supporting our staff of 150 to further develop a culture of health, safety and wellbeing at the Council.

This is a great opportunity to enjoy the variety of activities that local government is involved with, and make a difference in a world where health and safety has growing importance.

A passion for health and safety is essential, as is a willingness to attend relevant training with the possibility of studying towards certifi cation. Better still if you already have a National Certificate or Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (Workplace Safety).

Communication skills, good time management, the ability to organise, and high levels of computer literacy are a must. An understanding of the Health & Safety at Work Act will be required.
