On behalf of our client, we are seeking to recruit a Safety Engineer on an initial 12-month contract. An opportunity has arisen for an engineer to exploit their safety engineering skills to influence the safety aspects of one of our technically complex products.

You will be required to liaise with key stakeholders to help define the safety boundary, assist in the production of the associated Safety Management Plan, and to deliver the required safety analyses. The initial emphasis will be progression of the Hazard Analysis, development of a Functional Failure Analysis, and support to the development of an appropriate safety architecture.
