Global Head of Health and Safety

Stratum was retained by one of its key clients, a mid-tier multi-commodity mining company, to assist with finding their new Global Head of Health and Safety.

Due to the nature of its operations, many of its people operate in high-risk environments. The mandate was to attract a high-level Health and Safety professional with a track record of successfully improving the practices, processes, and standards across the discipline over multiple sites worldwide.

The successful candidate would have at least two decades of international experience working in Health and Safety. Additionally, experience working in a turnaround environment would be beneficial, as some of the companies’ sites had not yet achieved transformation in their Health and Safety practices.

The location of the Headquarters and many of the company’s sites meant that fluency in French or Dutch would be advantageous.

Key objectives:

  • Proactively identify and control potential health and safety risks to the company’s people.
  • Improve visible safety in leadership.
  • Lead a culture of shared vigilance where every team member takes responsibility for their health and safety while on site.
