Senior Electrical Safety Engineer

The Company
Well-established and growing Electrical Engineering and Automation Systems Integration company who specialise in delivering projects across a wide variety of sectors and system platforms in this technical niche. The company are stable, growing, and have a strong workflow so they need a Senior Electrical Safety Engineer to join their team.

The Role
This role will encompass safety of electrical, control systems, and machinery on industrial and manufacturing centric projects.

The role will involve site visits and initial safety risk assessments and you will be one of a team of safety go-to people on the design of electrical and control systems across a variety of contexts.

You would be joining a team of electrical and automation engineers with this safety experience and CMSE or TUV certifications. Ideally you will have one of these certifications or have senior level experience with the safety side of projects and be happy to complement your experience by doing one of these courses with this company.

Depending on your skillsets other elements of the role could be Project Management, Electrical Design and Drawings, Procurement, Programming and Configuration of SCADA, PLC, and HMI, Installation Supervision, and Project Commissioning.

The bulk of the work will be Auckland based with the odd day trip away so this could be an ideal lifestyle change for someone who is sick of project related travel.

Does this sound like you?

  • Tertiary qualified in Electrical Engineering (or similar)
  • Ideally have CMSE or TUV Certificates or a Senior Electrical Engineer with safety experience
  • Familiar with the SISTEMA software tool to define safety categories
  • Risk analysis and validation stage experience
  • HAZOP experience
  • Electrical & Safety Design and CAD experience e.g., with EPLAN or AutoCAD
  • Electrical &/or Automation Project Management experience, especially Safety and Commissioning

You may be someone who has a niche focus on safety, you could be someone that safety forms a part of what you do as a Senior Electrical Engineer, or you could even be someone who wants to lead the safety and electrical design side of the company, so at least make an inquiry to explore this further if any of this sounds like you.
