Specifically, you will ensure employers are providing safe and compliant workplaces for all members of their teams. You will identify risks, provide advice and, critically, ensure that steps are taken to remedy any areas that are identified as unsafe or in need of action.

Inspecting a wide range of different businesses for varying reasons from day-to-day health and safety checks to reports of issues within a particular workplace, you will investigate, report and, where required, take enforcement action.

- Experience of the assessment and management of health risks from workplace exposure to a range of hazards such as substances hazardous to health, work-related infections etc.
- Experience developing policies and written arrangements for protecting worker health
- Experience managing health surveillance arrangements regarding risks to workers’ hearing, skin and respiratory systems as well as the risks from exposure to vibration
- Experience monitoring the quality and effectiveness of occupational health delivery
- Experience in the management of musculo-skeletal disorders, work-related stress and broader occupational diseases
- A full driving licence that permits you to drive in the UK unless a case for reasonable adjustments can be made under the Equality Act 2010
- To be a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council

As a requirement of your contract, we will build on your existing experience working in occupational health by supporting your completion of the two year Specialist Community Public Health Nursing PgDip and Masters, should you not already hold this qualification.
