There are many ways that we promote health and safety, by providing information, guidance and advice for example, as well as promoting training and commissioning research. On the legal side of things, we’ve developed a goal setting system of regulation – and of course, we also enforce the law.
As workplaces change, so do health and safety needs. It’s a dynamic and evolving arena that’s constantly presenting fresh challenges. We are always looking at new, innovative and imaginative ways to build an effective health and safety culture in the UK: one that will protect people and save more lives.

About The Role
Specialist Inspectors are at the front line of our work – assessing the operation of a business, considering potential health and safety risks and what can be done to prevent them. Your goal will be to influence the way people think and work: to convince them that a commitment to health and safety should underpin everything they do.
For many organisations that you work with, this will mean a big cultural shift. Strong communication and relationship building skills are important, combined with professional expertise, common sense and sound judgment. You will make improvements through influencing and persuading but there will be times when this is not enough. Your focus will then change to supporting enforcement action, including giving expert evidence in legal proceedings.

All in all then, it is a hugely varied role. You will be working with many different people at every level. The challenges are there – but so are the rewards. After all, every part of your work will be geared to achieving one goal: protecting people’s safety and wellbeing.

Person Requirements
Applicants must:

  • Hold a degree in a relevant subject
  • Be a Chartered Electrical Engineer with Corporate Membership of the Institution of Engineering and Technology or have the experience and qualifications needed to gain membership
  • Have broad ranging experience based on power systems (inc. generation, distribution and use) and/or control systems (e.g. electrical, electronic, programmable safety related systems) with a good knowledge of safety issues, risk assessment and safe working practices
  • Bring knowledge of electrical, electronic and programmable safety-related control systems
  • Have a full driving licence that permits you to drive in the UK, unless reasonable adjustments can be made under the Equality Act 2010
