Safety Officer (Heerema)


For our client Heerema, who is experienced in the Maritime Offshore industry, we are looking for a Safety Officer to join their team offshore!


As Safety Officer no single day is the same. One moment you are providing proactive guidance and operational support and the next moment you are coaching personnel on proper implementation of the QA/SHE Management System on board.

You instruct on required safety precautions and correct use of Personal Protective Equipment and you will assist in helicopter operations in the role of Helicopter Landing Officer. Updating the system, assisting in the investigation and reporting of accidents and incidents is also part of your tasks. You report to the HSE Officer.  Quality, health, safety and the environment are as important to the conduct of our business as any commercial interest. We set ourselves strict goals in these areas, which are critically reviewed every year. We are able to continuously improve because we only recruit the best people and maintain the highest standards of quality and safety through reliable processes. Our HSE Officers and Safety Officers work on the SSCV’s and DCV’s on 5 weeks on 5 weeks off rotation.
