Together we are safer. Safety is one of our core values. We’re committed to a ‘zero harm’ environment and we act consciously every day to protect the safety and health of our employees, our contractors, visitors to our sites and the community.

About our team
In 2016, GrainCorp celebrated 100 years of growth. Today, we are proud to be Australia’s largest agribusiness with diversified operations that span four continents and the global food supply chain.

GrainCorp Grains connects more than 10,000 grain growers with local and international customers via Australia’s largest silo network, with a storage capacity of over 20 million tonnes, seven bulk port elevators and two specialty port terminals. Innovation, integration and partnership are the foundations on which we are growing into our second century with customers at the heart of all that we do.

About the role
The Safety, Health & Environment (SHE) Manager is a crucial member of the Southern NSW leadership team in one of our largest businesses, Grains.

Based from our Regional Support Office at Wagga Wagga, and reporting to the GM SHE in Sydney, the role will take lead across all safety, health and environment matters for the region.

You’ll implement Grains and group-level SHE strategies and programs, developing targeted initiatives for your portfolio that lead to continuous and sustainable improvements in SHE performance.

Specifically, you will:

  • Build capability in your region to enable the leadership team to implement GrainCorp’s SHE strategies and programs
  • Provide teams with coaching, mentoring and SHE technical support to prevent incidents and injuries
  • Partner with and coach leaders and teams to understand and effectively apply SHE systems
  • Support the implementation and maintenance of external SHE certifications
  • Challenge non-compliance issues and escalate if required to ensure these issues are resolved according to legislative SHE standards
  • Provide advice and assistance to ensure the thorough investigation of incidents and the appropriateness of corrective actions to prevent a recurrence and eliminate or otherwise minimise risk
  • Provide professional advice to management to assist with SHE communication and reporting to employees and external parties such as customers, contractors and authorities.

A suitable relocation package will be negotiated with the successful candidate, where required.

About your experience
Our ideal candidate has recognised qualifications / formal training in WHS and sound experience operating in an autonomous safety management position within a similar business environment (such as supply chain or manufacturing).

You should have an excellent working knowledge of WHS legislation – preferably NSW. Proven incident investigation experience following an accepted methodology (ICAM preferred) and experience in audit and corrective action planning is required.

You should have a clean and current driver’s licence and the willingness and ability to undertake frequent travel in your region (around 50% travel in role).

Finally, and most importantly, you will have outstanding communication, influencing, negotiation and stakeholder engagement skills.

Together we realise our potential. At GrainCorp, we value and respect the different perspectives and experiences our people bring to work each day. We aim to increase the diversity of our workforce – leading to a range of different thinking, perspectives and ideas that create the innovation we need to drive better business results. We aim to have a work environment where everyone feels included and everyone can realise their full potential.
