     * Ensuring ownership resides with the appropriate roles within the organization
     * Ensuring facility risk profile is addressed through the development and implementation of key controls
     * Recommending and facilitating engineering/design changes to eliminate or reduce risk (e.g., machine guarding, ergonomics, traffic, fire/explosion, noise, upset conditions)
     * Driving flawless execution, assessment, and improvement of critical safe work practices
     * Supporting all phases of capital and major expense projects to ensure safe execution (e.g., design review, contractor selection/orientation/auditing, work plans/permits, pre-startup review)
     * Ensuring training is provided by properly qualified persons, and that training is effective (e.g., though documented demonstration of competency)
     * Driving continuous improvement through the use of tool and activities, including: self-assessments and audit processes; incident/near miss investigations; metrics and targets (leading and lagging indicators); and periodic reviews of performance, culture, and talent

What You Will Need:
