Health and safety is not only a legal requirement of any ongoing business, it is also important in maintaining morale of staff and also keeping them safe, which can reduce sick days and prevent litigation through accidents at work. In charge of H&S will be a health and safety manager or head of health and safety. Their job will be to keep in touch with the law and technologies surrounding the industry they are working in, performing inspections and ordering repairs, and to keep the staff informed about health and safety.
Logistics, with its heavy transport, warehouses, potentially hazardous materials and bulk goods, is inherently dangerous if the correct health and safety procedures are not observed. But even “safe” areas like offices require health and safety law to be implemented, and this will also form part of the health and safety manager’s role.
In large companies, the health and safety manager might be required to oversee several sires, and an in-depth knowledge of their H&S requirements will be required. The health and safety manager often has the power to shut down any part of a site he or she thinks falls below the required standards.
Instilling health and safety is often something of a persuasive skill, as it’s well known that workers get complacent and can often fall into bad habits. It will be up to the head of health and safety to make sure rules are observed, so good communication skills – informing and listening – will be essential.
The role also requires an ability to absorb and comprehend changes in H&S law and the H&S implications of new technologies. This could involve study and attendance at seminars, where a receptive personality will be valued.
The job will involve a good deal of paperwork, digital and literal, so good computer skills, especially report-writing, will be necessary.

Anglesey is an island county off the coast of North Wales, but is an integral part of Wales itself, with Welsh culture part of its inherent makeup. The island was joined to mainland Wales in the nineteenth century by two bridges near Bangor, one designed by Thomas Telford, the other by Robert Stephenson. Anglesey’s population of around 70,000 is concentrated mainly in the north-west port of Holyhead, which houses around 14,000. It is also the county town and an important ferry port, with regular services to Dublin.
There is a certain amount of tourism in Anglesey, but not as much as there is on the North Wales coast. The island is rather agricultural in nature, although the port provides an important cluster of jobs and helps the economy greatly. As with any port town, Health and Safety Manager jobs do become available in Holyhead, which makes Anglesey among the best place in the North Wales region to find such work.
At Cast UK, we never stop working with procurement, logistics and supply chain clients and applicants from across the country, and are dedicated to filling each position with the best talent possible.
