Spokane Transit is in the middle stages of a dynamic 10-year plan called STA Moving Forward. The purpose of this plan is to maintain, improve, and expand transit services throughout Spokane County to meet the needs of our growing community. We are looking for a well-qualified safety manager to take on the great responsibility to ensure the day-to-day implementation and operations of the Agency’s Safety Management System (SMS) are accomplished.
The Safety Manager has the oversight authority and responsibility for the day-to-day implementation and operations of the Agency’s Safety Management System (SMS) and reports to the CEO. The safety of operations rests with the relevant agency managers. The Safety Manager’s role is to assist those managers with safe operations. The Safety Manager meets frequently with management to provide direction and supervision for the development and implementation of various programs and plans that define the safety culture and safety requirements that contribute to a safer work environment, and define the level of safety requirements for STA, its employees, consultants, and contractors, patrons, and facilities.
As the Safety Manager, you will lead the safety committee and be responsible for overseeing, managing, supervising, and coordinating STA’s agency-wide system safety, loss control and emergency response programs. You will apply your expertise to develop and implement bus system safety programs in coordination with agencies and contractors, develop and recommend safety policies to executive management, and coordinate assigned activities with department managers and staff. Your efforts to develop and implement programs to reduce the frequency, severity, and cost of employee and 3rd party accidents, injuries, and occupational illnesses will be of great value to STA employees and the greater Spokane community.
