It is an important part of my job to regularly work on the shop floor. This allows me to establish an HSE presence and provide support if needed.
I love my job because I genuinely like to ensure colleagues, contractors and visitors to the site are kept safe.
I applied for an apprenticeship at JDR Cable Systems in the HSE sector. I was successful and found myself working in the wind industry.
After 16 months, I completed my apprenticeship and was taken on full time at JDR as an HSE Coordinator.
As part of my job I am required to carry out the day-to-day operations of the HSE department. I contribute to the application of effective Health, Safety and Environmental management by providing technical support.
I also assist in the compliance of applicable laws and regulations, and maintain relevant HSE logs and documentation.
I also take part in compliance reviews, general risk assessments and prepare applicable HSE reports as necessary.
