Here’s the FULL LIST of HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGER INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:

Q1. Tell me about yourself and why you want to become a Health and Safety Manager?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“I am a dedicated, organized, and passionate person who takes my work very seriously. As a Health and Safety Manager you have to be determined, knowledgeable and resolute in everything you do, and those are just some of the qualities I possess that I am proud of. The role of a Health and Safety Manager requires specific skills and qualities which I certainly feel I have in abundance. These are, being relied upon to create and instill a culture of ‘safety must always come first’ within an organization; excellent communication skills, especially when dealing with people who perhaps might be skeptical about safety; and finally an understanding that you are running a business. On that basis, safety has to run in parallel with your strategic aims and objectives. If you hire me as your Health and Safety Manager, I will work with you to ensure everything you and your employees do is compliant, and the risk is minimized to an acceptable level.”

Q2. Why have you chosen our company to work for as a Health and Safety Manager?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“The role of a Health and Safety Manager is the type of position where you have to have the support of your employer. There are some organizations out there who, I believe, do not take safety as seriously as they should. Having researched your organization, it is clear you want to embed a culture of health and safety within your organization, and when difficult decisions have to be made, I believe you will support me in the process. For those reasons, and also the fact you are a leader within your industry, make me want to become your Health and Safety Manager.”
