We’re looking for new talent to join us as we reinvent the future of energy. Across BC, we have a diverse team of more than 2,500 employees we can’t do without, yet we’re growing as fast as ever.

You may think we’re your standard utility that delivers natural gas and electricity, but we’re also into cool, innovative energy solutions. Think carbon capture, renewable energies and lower-carbon transportation for a start. We believe in creating a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.

If you like meaningful work, a dynamic environment and forward-thinking colleagues, build your career with us. You’ll get opportunities to grow, lead, solve, and create. So what are you waiting for? Let’s rethink energy together. Position Overview
You live and breathe safety and understand the need for developing safety programming that's based on listening to and involving those closest to the work in safety decision-making. You take a collaborative approach to curate your programs to the needs of internal and external partners, fostering an inclusive safety culture and work environment. It sounds like you'd make for a great Safety Culture Specialist!

Joining our Operational Health and Safety department, you'll help shift safety culture by incorporating a Human and Operational Performance (HOP) philosophy that uses a learning-based concept to shape a work environment that promotes psychological and physical safety.

Your mind is always planning and thinking strategically, and you can effortlessly integrate corporate objectives into learning initiatives and long-term programming. Settling for good enough is out of the question as you continually assess plans and processes to identify inefficiencies and enable more streamlined execution.

We've solidified our commitment to sustainability with our 30BY30 promise to reduce our customer's emissions by 30 per cent by the year 2030. We need collaborators, innovators and safety leaders like yourself to help us in achieving our goal, and join us in rethinking our energy future.

In year 1, you will:
Support the development and execution of yearly HOP program plans, ensuring alignment and consistency with all current initiatives and adapting programs to be leaner.
Assist in developing and sustaining operational learning tools, including a process to utilize learning team facilitators, share learning team outcomes and evaluate learning progress.
Develop a process to seek out, evaluate and recommend external research specific to HOP philosophy and psychological safety. In year 2, you will:
Support the program manager in monitoring new systems and make recommendations for enhancements and changes.
Develop a sustainment program for our internal departments and external contractors focused on operational learning and promoting a culture of psychological safety.
Collaborate with stakeholders to develop, communicate and support the implementation of a holistic multi-year education program, ensuring alignment and collaboration with other organizational initiatives. What it takes:
A diploma in Occupational Health and Safety, Business Administration, Communications or a related field, and a minimum of three years of experience directly implementing Human and Operational Performance (HOP) philosophy within an organization.
Registration or eligibility to obtain a Canadian Registered Safety Professional designation.
A continuous improvement certification, such as LEAN, Six Sigma and others, would be considered an asset.
Effective collaboration skills to craft programs and strategies that meet the needs of internal and external stakeholders.
Excellent strategic thinking and decision-making to align programs with larger corporate objectives and continually enhance processes.
