A Safety Specialist apprentice will support in an assigned location, coordinating and assisting in the implementation of Amazon workplace health and safety programmes as directed by Work Health and Safety (WHS) leadership, in alignment with policy and team goals. Apprentices on the programme will initially work alongside a WHS Coordinator to gain a thorough understanding of how safety initiatives are implemented in the workplace. As they gain experience and knowledge they will support WHS specialists and become competent in conducting safety related trainings onsite with managers and associates, and provide on the spot feedback to employees regarding observable behaviors that impact ability to work safely. By providing feedback, they influence associates and leaders within the building to display safe behaviors and achieve site safety audit and prevention goals on a daily basis.

Apprentices will be allocated time away from their daily responsibilities each week to study to achieve the Process Lead apprenticeship and the NCQR level 6 Diploma in Applied Health & Safety. Each apprentice will have the support of an Amazon buddy, a specialist coach, their line manager and the apprenticeship team.
