Occupational Hygienist

  • Goldfields, WA, Australia
  • Full Time

WA’s a state (and an economy) built on mining and at Mineral Resources (MRL), we’re focused on growing that position.

With this growth comes new roles and those rare opportunities to get noticed and achieve meaningful results.

About the role

We have two opportunities available in our Hygiene team for an Occupational Hygienist to work closely with our site safety and site supervisor teams to ensure the mining operation complies with all Company and Statutory Occupational Health, Safety and Training Regulations.

Working a 8/6 FIFO roster from Perth, this role will be responsible for Occupational Hygiene scope across our Iron Valley and Wonmunna Operations. Your primary duties will include identifying assessing, reporting and facilitating the control of health hazards at the operations.

In this position you’ll:

  • Implement the Health and Hygiene Management Plan & Sampling Plan
  • Ensure all health hazards and incidents identified are assessed, controlled & reported in INX
  • Conduct control verification activities
  • Conduct investigations for occupational hygiene incidents
  • Report occupational hygiene exposure data to stakeholders at set frequencies

  • Discharge the legislative duties of Ventilation Officer and Noise Officer
  • Conduct formal Alcohol & Drug testing on site as required
  • Liaising with Statutory & Regulatory bodies.
  • Conduct daily Field Leadership Interactions and record them in INX
  • Assist in the accident/incident investigations and assist in the identification of corrective actions.

We’re creating opportunities for you to own projects and deliver results. From start through to completion, your fingerprints will be there.

Because here you don’t get lost in layers of people; you step up to make your mark and can easily see your contribution.

At MRL, you get noticed when you maximise opportunities and build a better project, a better team, a better workday.

Supporting you to work the way that works for you? MRL would.

 Flexibility and job security

They’re two things MRL employees value and, when we say job security, it’s not just about staying somewhere safe that no longer serves you.

Here, job security means working to your strengths, being challenged on each project, and achieving meaningful results that inspire you to choose to stay long-term.

“That’s how we’ve always done it” doesn’t exist here, because the value you bring to MRL will shape your role – and your contribution to our company.

It’s the kind of flexibility that extends to opportunities to co-create your preferred work environment.

And then there’s the extra benefits

We look after our people because they’re the ones looking after our business.

That means a range of additional benefits for choosing MRL, including:

• Competitive salary
