Meet Rebecca, Health & Safety Administrator

We catch up with Rebecca, to learn more about what it takes to work in this exciting department.

Describe a typical day in the role? 

No two days are the same but there is an element of routine in this role. Your day always begins catching up on the previous day’s incidents followed by answering queries, booking and organising training and various projects to administer and meetings to attend. There are occasions where incidents occur and you have to drop everything and assist which can be exciting too.

What skills do you need to excel as a Fire Health & Safety admin?

Being organised! Managing your time and thinking on your toes really helps. You deal with so many different people in this role so good people skills is a must. An element of initiative with your tasks enable you to cover things which others may not have thought of and get you ahead of the game. With the role throwing up a variety of business and people related queries, it is paramount that the right professionalism is demonstrated and being approachable to encourage people to ask for help and advice when they need it.  

What is the most challenging aspect?

Every role has its challenges, mine can vary daily from telephone queries that are in a way, complex and out of my advising capability to which my team support me with. The workload can be quite overwhelming at times but with the right attitude and prioritising, it can be manageable.

"I work with a variety of people across the business which provides an exciting diverse environment."

What do you love about working within the Fire, Health and Safety team?

The team ethic and opportunity to learn and excel within my role. I work with a variety of people across the business and with no two days the same it provides an exciting diverse environment. Being the primary contact point for the team, everyone gets to know you and I am proud to be a representative of such an influential team of people.
