Head of Health and Safety Jobs in Derby

Located on the River Derwent in Derbyshire, Derby is among England's 20 largest urban areas and the broad range of businesses based there today make it a great option for those seeking new Head of Health and Safety vacancies.

Derby's history goes back to a Roman settlement called Derventio and the area was home to Saxon and Viking communities during its early years.

The Industrial Revolution marked an important turning point for Derby and the city was the first to reap the benefits of a water-powered silk mill in the early 1700s.

Other innovations later in the century led to improved techniques for manufacturing stockings. In addition, a number of cotton spinning mills were established.

Within 100 years, Derby had become an important industrialised city as well as the headquarters for a number of regional railways.

Rolls-Royce established a factory in 1907, constructing cars and aircraft, while the Derby railway works was a bustling facility that designed and built rolling stock for the nation's growing rail system. Indeed, the first diesel-electric locomotive was produced there in 1948.

There's no doubt that Derby's past has influenced its future and today its top employers continue to be based in automotive manufacture and railway engineering. These include Rolls-Royce, Toyota and Bombardier Transportation.

Other well-known companies include Egg, an internet banking company, and Alstom, a company that manufactures boilers and heat exchangers for industrial purposes. Meanwhile, the chocolate company Thorntons is headquartered in nearby Alfreton.
