Health & Safety Manager Jobs
How to Enter
Due to being a managerial-level role, most New Zealand employers look for candidates with qualifications or experience in Occupational Safety & Health or a similar field, when hiring a Health & Safety Manager. Health & Safety Diplomas are offered by Massey University, University of Otago, South Institute of Technology or the Employers and Manufacturers Association.
The typical job responsibilities of a Health & Safety Manager could include all or some of the following:
- Reviewing construction plans and blueprints, ventilation systems and lighting
- Deciding proper signage and disposal methods of onsite materials
- Mapping out emergency evacuation plans, including locations of fire extinguishers and first-aid kits
- Ensuring sites and projects adhere to building codes and government regulations
- Presenting and explaining Health & Safety plans
- Providing Health & Safety training
- Conducting periodic site inspections
Health & Safety Managers can often choose to specialise further in specific industries, such as Oil and Gas, or Construction and Architecture. However, many professionals can progress further into management, teaching, researching and policy-based roles.
