HSE Manager

Job No: WINSON43
Location: Brisbane

  • Lead safety, multi-site responsibilities
  • Successful, privately owned manufacturing group
  • Based in Brisbane South-east Head Office

Winson Group is a well-established Australian owned national group of companies, successfully operating in the B2B manufacturing and distribution environment for 50 years. We are a AS/NZS4801:2001 and ISO 9001 certified business with a strong continual improvement focus.

We take safety seriously, and believe safety is more than procedures, tools and certifications. People are the heart of safety. To that end, we’re seeking a Safety professional who can manage, influence and support the business’s safety journey.

You may already have a few years’ experience in management; or this role may offer an exciting career opportunity to move into your first safety management position.  Our ideal candidate will have experience in energizing a safety culture in manufacturing or logistics environments; a hands-on approach; as well as the drive to champion health, safety and environment performance at all levels of business. 


More about the job:

You will report directly to the General Manager Operations and partner with the business to provide expert advice and support in health, safety and environment across all sites.  While Brisbane is our largest site and will demand most of your time, some overnight interstate travel may also be required every quarter.

You will be responsible for ongoing improvement of our HSE Management System to ensure all legislative, regulatory and accreditation requirements are met. Beyond this you will play a critical part in fostering an ever-improving safety culture across the organisation through coaching, mentoring and direct engagement. A sound working knowledge of ISO9001:2015, LEAN Manufacturing and Rehabilitation and Return to Work practices will also be an advantage.

You will be able to demonstrate experience in working with risk management methodologies, auditing processes and providing reports and presentations for senior management.  This is a hands-on, operational role in a small team, so you will have the capacity to manage detail and process, while keeping the bigger picture front of mind.

  • Current qualifications in Safety, Internal Auditing and Rehabilitation essential; relevant tertiary qualifications highly regarded
  • Experience in a manufacturing, engineering or distribution environment
