About us

With Victoria's strong population growth and demand for services within the justice portfolio increasing at unprecedented rates, the scale of the infrastructure required to support this demand has never been more significant. The Community Safety Building Authority (CSBA) has been established to support the transformation required to create a public service that is more connected, agile and mobile to respond to these challenges.

The CSBA will support the Department of Justice and Community Safety (DJCS) by planning, designing, procuring and building new infrastructure assets as well as modernising and upgrading existing ones. CSBA will look for opportunities to support DJCS to deliver the targeted responses Victorians need through innovation in victim centred system design and precinct based localised delivery of integrated services. 

About the role

The Safety Coordinator will be expected to maintain and support the implementation of an integrated safety management framework and system, supporting responses to corporate compliance deliverables, such as audit requirements and contributing to annual reporting and other government reporting for the CSBA. In this role you will:

  • provide advice and support to project delivery partners to adopt best practice safety processes, approaches and initiatives
  • ensure that consultative processes are followed to improve health and safety by using the relevant tools and systems, including guidelines and policies
  • prepare reports, ministerial briefs, cabinet and agency submissions on project and operational matters.

About you

As our ideal candidate, you will have:

  • demonstrated expertise, understanding or knowledge of the safety requirements on construction projects
  • demonstrated experience or knowledge of the principles and processes of project and contract management, project lifecycle stages and project management software
  • strong knowledge of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 and related regulations, and other associated legislative requirements.

A tertiary qualification (minimum Graduate Diploma) in a related discipline or equivalent experience is desirable.
