Our client is an International Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Company with operations in 16 countries and is also the largest operator in the Southern North Sea.

The Role:
This role is based in our office in Great Yarmouth and shall report to the Lead Safety Engineer. The successful candidate will be a key member of the QSSHE Team and will be responsible for the development, maintenance, review, update and resubmission of Offshore Safety Cases and Onshore COMAH Safety Reports in support of the Southern North Sea Operation. The successful applicant will be working with onshore engineering teams, technical authors, performance standard owners and operations personnel. You will ensure Safety Cases/COMAH Safety Reports remain in compliance with relevant statutory provisions and are aligned with good industry practice. Deliveries against the commitments made within these documents are also key to the role.
Key responsibilities include:
• Develop a review schedule for all Current Safety Cases (CSC) and COMAH Safety Reports (CSR) to ensure compliance with relevant statutory provisions – i.e. 5-yearly Thorough Review timelines
• Organise and coordinate the 5-yearly CSC Thorough Review Programme and CSR Programme.

• Act as the focal point for all e-PMPs (plant modifications) to assess the impact on the content of the CSC/CSR and advise the originator of the e-PMP of any sections of the CSC/CSR that will review update/review prior to the close-out of the e-PMP.
• Act as the custodian of the ‘Material Change Criteria’ for the CSC, ensuring this is reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure it remains in compliance with relevant statutory provisions (and guidance) and industry good practice.
• Supervise the Safety Case and COMAH case technical authors to ensure changes and modifications to these documents are acurately implemented and revised in a timely manner.
• Work closely with the Lead Safety Engineer (or other nominated person) to ensure hazard management information (including BowTie Diagrams) and Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) data remains valid. In particularly, keep abreast of changes in ‘data-sources’ that are used in the QRA for calculating TRIF, PLL, IRPA
• Create a register of all commitments made within the CSC/CSR. Ensure these actions are registered and tracked on a regular basis to ensure we deliver against any set deadlines.
• Identify ways of communicating CSC/CSR content to the workforce in order that these key documents remain as user-friendly and informative as possible.
• Identify additional ad-hoc resource requirements to manage ‘peaks’ in workload in order to ensure we meet all relevant statutory deadlines.
• Ensure key supporting documents (i.e. Emergency Response Plans, MAPDs) are kept up to date.
• Provide support to the Lead Safety Engineer and/or Safety Engineers (as required) to fulfil safety engineering workload (i.e. attendance at HAZOPs/HAZIDs/LOPAs etc).
• Ensure all documents are accessible (and remain updated) via the Intranet.
• Provide coaching, guidance and advice to operations, engineering and other support teams to ensure compliance with applicable legislation such as COMAH, SCR, PFEER, DSEAR, DCR, PSR and PSSR.
• Liaise with regulatory bodies on matters relating to CSC/CSR including general updates, material changes and 5-yearly resubmissions. Keep abreast of changes in offshore legislation (as it affects CSC) to ensure the business adjusts as required.
• Provide support to others within the QSHE Team to ensure our requirements under Safety Case Regulations, COMAH Regulations and internal QSSHE Plans and Programmes are achieved.
