Rosslyn, South Africa Job ID 16614 Apply


SC Johnson is a fifth-generation family company built on a spirit of adventure and winning the right way. We have been leading with purpose for over 130 years, building top brands such as Raid®, Glade®, Kiwi®, OFF!®, Windex®, Ziploc® and more, in virtually every country. Through these household names, we are making a positive difference to the world around us. But we only succeed with the combined vitality and strength of our 13,000 people who we truly value and support in their pursuit of individual and shared goals.

You will also provide 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.

  • 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.

  • Champions the deployment of employee-driven safety and environmental teams and facilitates technical support for team activities that promote a safe, healthy and environmentally responsible workplace.

  • 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.

  • May provide supervision to site-level SHE analysts and technicians
