Job description

Tradestaff Global is seeking expressions of interest for an experienced SAFETY ENGINEER to work on a project in ANTARCTICA.  This is an epic opportunity that doesn’t come along every day, don’t miss out on the experience of a lifetime.

This role isn’t for the faint hearted, you’d be living in one of the most isolated places in the world.  You’ll be based there for approx. 6 months.  It’ll be hard work but in return you’ll be paid well, gain the experience of a lifetime & see some amazing sights that most people will never get to see.  If you’ve ever wanted to tick this off your bucket list, this could be the job for you.

Role could start as early as mid March but background checks, inductions, medicals and dental checks etc need to get underway ASAP, don’t delay in applying.

We’re looking for someone with extensive experience and knowledge of health and safety in a commercial/industrial environment - including reporting, program compliance, conducting training sessions, control and issue of H&S gear, use/maintenance of H&S instrumentation.

Earn $3.5k p/w

Exceptional fitness is required due to long hours & extreme conditions. Work’s fast paced & everyone’s expected to pitch in & help other trades (including labouring work).
We work in some of the most remote areas of the world, if you’ve previously worked in the mines in Australia or PNG, then those camps are considered a luxury in comparison to the places we operate.  You’ll need to be happy ‘roughing it’ & sharing accommodation & in return you’ll be paid on time & have the opportunity to gain valuable overseas experience to help build your career. 

Applicants MUST meet the criteria below:
