Do you have experience in identifying, assessing, and developing mitigations for risks in industrial environments? Have you developed and applied frameworks supporting the management of multiple risks? If this sounds like you, consider joining our growing team in the Risk Analysis Unit. We have three new opportunities for industrial risk specialists who will lead and support risk-based projects, influence stakeholders throughout the province, and advise on risk-based strategies.
The Risk Analysis Unit at WorkSafeBC focuses on risks to workers in BC that cannot be readily identified and analyzed using existing, internal WorkSafeBC data sources. Categories of risks include catastrophic risks, emerging risks, slow acting harms, and risks that are undetected, underreported, or misdiagnosed.
What you’ll do
As an industrial risk specialist you will:
Identify and articulate potential risks to workers in industrial settings by sourcing and analyzing relevant information
Assess contributory risk factors and potential risk controls through the application of risk assessment frameworks, including bow tie analysis, HAZOP (Hazard and Operability study), FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), processing mapping and analysis, and other risk assessment frameworks as appropriate
Design, develop, and implement frameworks for risk assessment and risk management, and lead the development of technical solutions for managing risk-based knowledge
Identify and assess regulatory frameworks relevant to contributory factors and risk control, and review regulatory frameworks in other jurisdictions
Lead project-based risk assessment and mitigation efforts by providing direction to and monitoring a multi-disciplinary project team
Travel throughout the province to liaise with government agencies, employers, professional bodies and industry associations to inform on and influence the practical application of risk-based approaches in industrial environments
Develop and deliver decision rationale for organization prioritization of risk assessment and mitigation efforts
Is this a good fit for you?
We’re looking for someone who can:
Prioritize multiple projects in a fast-paced work environment
Work both independently and on a multi-disciplinary team
Network and build partnerships with internal and external stakeholders
Exhibit superior verbal and written communication skills, and exceptional organizational skills
Your experience and educational background:
A Master’s degree
A minimum of three years of experience in industrial risk assessment and risk management
A recognized occupational health and safety certification is an asset (e.g., CRSP, CSP, ROH, CIH, COHN)
A recognized certification or designation addressing aspects of risk assessment and risk management is an asset (e.g. CRM, P. Eng)
Working knowledge of project management practices and applications
An equivalent combination of education and experience will be considered
Internal Number: 29804
