THIS IS A CRITICAL POSITION. During the current health crisis, any job interviews will be held by video or audio conference.

The Water Services Department (WSD) is currently seeking a Safety Analyst II (SA II) for the Safety & Training Section to identify, evaluate and mitigate workplace hazards within the Distribution and Meters Divisions. WSD is one of the largest water/wastewater utilities in the nation, serving 1.7 million residents within a 540 square mile service area. In addition to protecting public health and safety by treating raw and waste waters and delivering clean water to our customers and the environment, our organization is committed to safety, innovation, environmental protection, and regulatory compliance.

The SA II will join a roughly 20-member professional safety staff; coordinate environmental, health and safety efforts with peers and other WSD Divisions; supervise one or two Safety Analyst Is; and report to the Safety Program Coordinator.  The SA II works in groups and independently on assigned programs, training and projects.

In the Distribution Division, maintenance and repair projects generally take place in work zones within city rights-of-way, utilizing crews and heavy trucks/equipment to excavate and backfill around water mains and other underground utilities.  In Meters, a variety of vehicles and equipment are used to provide customer services and maintain water meters ranging from small residential units in hand-boxes to large commercial meters in vaults.

A key responsibility is to build positive, trusted relationships with clients at all levels of the Team and organization. In addition, the SA II assists in developing safety policies, procedures, training, accident investigations, and implementation of programs pursuant to federal occupational safety, motor carrier, and environmental and fire protection frameworks (such as Trenching and Shoring, Hazard Communication, Asbestos Exposure and Disposal, Lock-Out/Tag-Out, Fire Drills, etc.).  The SA II also collaborates with other departments, consultants, contractors, vendors and third-party trainers.
