Agricultural Consultant: Farm Compliance/H&S Specialist- Wilts/Gloucs/Oxon - HC002

If you are looking for a change of career without sacrificing being on-farm, becoming a rural compliance/health and safety consultant with a trusted, well established business may be the right path.

 This well renowned company with eleven consultants based in Wiltshire are seeking a second consultant to join the team due to consistent business growth over the last four years.

• Ensure that all required documentation is complete, up-to-date, and easily accessible for regulatory audits or inspections.

• Support implementation of environmental stewardship programs aimed at minimizing the farm's ecological footprint and promoting sustainable practices.

• Develop, implement, and enforce health and safety policies and procedures to ensure a safe working environment for all farm personnel.

• Conduct inspections and risk assessments to identify hazards and address them promptly.

• Identify potential compliance risks and develop strategies to mitigate them effectively.

• Collaborate with internal stakeholders, such as farm managers, supervisors, and workers, to foster a culture of compliance and continuous improvement.
