Associate Manager, SHE Safety & Health

Rosslyn, South Africa

Category: Quality Assurance, Research and Development, Supply Chain Job ID: 26902

Position: Associate Manager, SHE

Location: Rosslyn, South Africa

The SHE Associate Manager leads site-level deployment of SC Johnson’s Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) management practices to ensure compliance with local legal requirements and SCJ global standards. The role will work closely with the site and regional SHE leaders to align SC Johnson’s overall safety, health and environmental strategies with site-level targets and objectives. This role also provides technical and strategic leadership to ensure site-wide processes associated with the management of high-hazard chemical processes are effectively deployed and maintained. While this role requires safety, health and environmental technical knowledge and experience, success is equally dependent on developing and supporting “champions” within the site to drive day-to-day ownership for SHE.

  • Partners with assigned stakeholders to drive timely, effective closure of identified SHE-related corrective and preventive actions.
  • Coordinates completion of risk assessments such as Process Hazard Analyses (PHA) and periodic PHA revalidations for the site’s high-hazard chemical processes.  
  • Collaborates with the site’s engineering and maintenance teams to ensure that inspections, testing, preventive maintenance activities associated with SHE-critical equipment and applicable high-hazard chemical processes are defined and appropriately documented.
  • Provides subject matter expertise to support periodic external regulatory inspections associated with safety, health, environmental and/or fire protection matters.
  • Champions the investigation of safety, health and environmental incidents and ensures that corrective and preventive actions that address root causes are effectively deployed across the site.
  • Leads the development and maintenance of training processes to ensure that required safety, health and environmental training for the site is defined, addresses required content and is tracked to completion.
  • Serves as a SHE representative for Management of Change (MOC) reviews to evaluate and control potential health and safety hazards and environmental impacts associated with business activity changes.
  • Verifies the accuracy of data in the company’s SHE database (e.g., Entropy) and analyzes the data to identify loss trends that can contribute to injuries and illnesses, adverse environmental impacts and SHE process non-conformances.
  • Partners with operations, human resources and medical teams to effectively manage return-to-work programs for work-related injuries and illnesses.
  • Provides input on site-level SHE goals and budgets.
  • Provides supervision to site-level SHE team member.

Experience you’ll bring:

  • Bachelor’s degree from an academic university in Occupational Safety, Industrial Hygiene, Environmental Science, Engineering or related discipline
