Summary of the Role
Bellai is seeking a health and safety executive who will oversee all aspects of the company’s health, safety and well-being. A leader who will build to enhance and fine-tune an existing safety program that is well regarded, delivering best in class but also practical solutions that tie into the overall culture of the business. This role will ensure the standards of worksite health and safety are among the best in the industry and will assist in raising the bar in terms of accountability for all members of the team. Safety is at the forefront of the culture at Bellai and this role will ensure it is second nature to every employee.
This role reports directly to the President but the main day to day interactions will be with all department heads and team leaders. You will have an opportunity to enhance and fine-tune an already established safety program by bringing in new ideas and an out of the box approach to solving complex issues. Your enhancements will elevate the safety culture to new heights, firmly establishing that the safety of all employees and other workers on sites is the top priority, ultimately ensuring that they can all return home to their families at the end of every day.

With that said, innovative, effective safety strategies and policies are always needing to be reviewed, updated and enforced.
This is a once in a career opportunity to make your mark on the health and safety arena of the construction industry. You will have complete oversight of the health and safety department and be responsible for enhancing a safety legacy at Bellai that keeps hundreds of people safe for years to come. You will report directly to the President and be accountable for all health and safety department decisions.
