The Manager will provide safety support and validate compliance with federal, state, and local laws for the university to maintain, promote, and exceed safety standards; keep leadership informed on all training and re-certification progress for all compliance trainings; and seek out new training and certification opportunities to support the growth and development of the Operations team.

This position will assist with implementing programs to drive a culture of safety.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Foster/develop a culture where safety is ingrained as a core value with all employees, everyone believes zero incident rate is achievable, everyone is actively engaged in performing their work in a safe manner, and everyone actively interacts with co-workers to prevent at-risk behaviors.
  • Actively address unsafe behaviors and engage with operations to enforce the required safety disciplines by employees. Constantly promote a culture of prevention by identifying all potential unsafe conditions and behaviors and leading the effort among all employees to address them.

  • Oversee the execution of training programs at the required duration, quality, quantity, and effectiveness to include new hires and more experienced associates.

  • Ensure all training guides, materials, videos, job aides, and other means of communication for training purposes are readily available and in active use.
  • Drive a structured training plan daily and weekly using proper tracking tools to monitor and validate compliance with our training program requirements. Address deficiencies and risks with operations management to secure proper resources and alignment with training demands.
