Have you looked at machine design and development, and been concerned at the priority given to cost reductions over safety? Have you grown tired of safety being perceived as a police department? Are you frustrated with everyone being accountable for safety, but the safety teams being accountable to no one?  Are you a solution-orientated practical individual, who is not afraid to openly and respectfully challenge designs and maintenance strategies? Then this is the role for you! Tasked with the development of integrated and intrinsic safety in the design of turbines for SGRE, that put the safety and wellbeing of the technician first, maintaining the balance between risk level and cost through the application of the hierarchy of controls to ensure SGRE continue to maintain our social license to operate.

How to contribute to our vision
Ensure SGRE maintains its social license to operate by putting the safety of our technicians first, in the design of our turbines.
