Why apply?

If you're in the market for a project safety role, this one is a great option because it is a client side position with a business that has long term capital plans. Working for the owner operator, you are able to play a key role in leading a safety program across a busy operational site, and to take greater ownership of what is being delivered in general. The employer is also a major player in an industry that has extrermely strong long term prospects in Australia, which may create opportunities beyond the delivery of the capital program.
