About Orange Sky Australia
Orange Sky Australia (OSA) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on the provision of free laundry and showers to people experiencing homelessness. We're growing, and fast. Since 2014, we've expanded our reach to every capital city in Australia and most recently, across the waters to Auckland, too.
Through a network of vans and with the help of over 1,400 volunteers across Australia, our mobile service is a catalyst for positive, genuine conversation. We’re driven, dedicated, insanely ambitious and a little unconventional. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We work hard and ‘get it done’, but always make time to celebrate each other’s success.
This diverse role will work within the Health, Safety, Environment and Risk team in supporting multiple organisational streams nationally to deliver creative fit for purpose health, safety and wellness solutions.
Our mobile services are pretty unique and we’re always striving to do things better, so this role requires a passionate, flexible and energetic health and safety professional with injury management experience to provide advice and technical assistance in support of Orange Sky’s objectives in work health, safety and injury management.
Excellent knowledge of Work Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation legislative and regulatory requirements
High level of understanding of work health and safety management principles and practices
Ability to mentor, coach and guide leaders, staff and volunteers on health, safety and injury management requirements and initiatives
Ability to develop fit for purpose health, safety and injury management policies, procedures and training material
Experience and confidence in facilitating risk assessment processes and completing inspections and audits
Demonstrated experience facilitating and managing incident investigations
Ability to develop and implement a national initiative to improve injury management processes
Build relationships with injury management/rehabilitation service providers and effectively manage these partnerships
Ability to case manage all aspects of the injury management and return to work process including return to work program design and managing medical and rehabilitation aspects of the return to work process
Who are we looking for?
To be successful in this role it is imperative you are a people person, and demonstrate excellent relationship building skills. You will be an effective communicator with the ability to adapt your communication styles to suit stakeholders at all levels, and you'll thrive off the challenge of something new.
Technically, you have a minimum of 5 years’ experience in a similar role. You will have qualifications in WHS (preferably a Bachelor in OHS) and a robust understanding of the WHS act and regulations. Ideally, you’ll hold a Workers’ Compensation/Return to Work qualification.
You will have a knack for delivering technical information into clear, plain English and be able to write easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, procedures and training material compliant with relevant legislation, Codes of Practice and Australian Standards.
Experience in a non-profit organisation isn’t essential, but you will have a genuine passion for our cause.
