PEOPLE’S LIVES ARE IN YOUR HANDS
Without your careful watch, a manufacturing plant could quickly become a dangerous place (especially if people ignore rules and safety procedures).
As a Safety Manager, it’s your job not only to make sure the workplace meets all the safety standards set by the government, but to analyze and evaluate work environments and procedures to minimize or eliminate any risks of injury or illness. Yes, you’ll be the wet blanket when Jim, the forklift operator decides to creating a forklift jousting competition, and when Sally, the chemical engineer says she’s going to blow up a stuffed animal in the parking lot, but you know that rules are rules, and they’re designed to keep everybody safe. And at the end of the day, everybody will respect you knowing that you have their back! Day to day you will analyze work environments and implement you procedures to maximize safety, you’ll stop operations when you see a potential danger, and you’ll investigate accidents when they happen, to make sure they never happen again.
