What does a Safety Coordinator do?
Safety coordinators work to ensure that other employees at their company can complete their work safely. They set safety standards for their workplace based on legal requirements and train employees to help them understand these rules. Safety coordinators also monitor working conditions and resolve any safety issues that may arise. They typically work in industrial settings, including factories, construction sites and workshops.
To successfully work in this role, you should have an understanding of how the machinery and other equipment in your company operates. Some jobs may require that applicants be registered as Certified Safety Professionals (CSP). To receive this certification, you must have a bachelor's degree and four years of work experience as a safety officer before passing the CSP exam. Safety officers typically have good communication and critical thinking skills as well.
