General Job Description

The Director of Safety is responsible for overall administrative and technical management of safety programs dealing with high-risk and/or multiple industrial construction projects. With minimal direction, this individual oversees company wide safety programs, which require considerable resources and high levels of functional integration and which includes the supervision of all safety team members, nationwide.

In this leadership position, the Director of Safety is responsible for assembling the safety team, assigning individual responsibilities, identifying appropriate resources needed, and developing schedules to ensure timely completion of assigned projects. The necessary level of self-reliance, strategic management skills, and supervision of high level reports as well as the sheer size and potential company impact of the assigned projects, make this role distinctively elevated beyond the role of a Project Safety Manager.

The role requires interfacing with all areas affected by the project including the client(s), distributors, vendors, and the ongoing strategic communication with senior management regarding the status of the safety program. It is critical that all important decisions and issues (both potential and actual) are relayed and coordinated appropriately, including but not limited to impacts to financial performance, schedule, safety and significant employee issues.
