Council is seeking the services of an occupational hygienist who has specialised in asbestos and who also has experience in contaminated land.

The position involves Council's activities as an industrial / commercial entity (e.g. managing asbestos within Council owned buildings and disposing of waste soil that is generated by Council itself), rather than the local government services that it provides to the residents within the LGA.

Ideally, you will have:

  • At least eight years’ experience in conducting asbestos audits of buildings, preparing and maintaining asbestos registers, preparing and implementing asbestos management plans, organising and managing the removal of asbestos from buildings, conducting air quality monitoring, conducting clearance inspections, and issuing clearance certificates.
  • At least a few years' experience in preparing waste classifications in accordance with the NSW EPA Waste Classification Guidelines (including ENM and VENM assessments) and undertaking environmental assessments and investigations - plus a reasonable awareness of the CLM Act, the POEO Act, the POEO (Waste) Regulation, and the ASC NEPM, and a reasonable understanding of the associated guidelines, including the Guidelines for the Assessment, Remediation and Management of Asbestos-Contaminated Sites in Western Australia.

However, appropriate contaminated land training would be provided to the right candidate if they were significantly experienced as an occupational hygienist asbestos specialist but lacked contaminated land experience and could demonstrate the necessary aptitude and willingness to learn other skills.

Salary will be dependent upon the relevant skills, experience, and competencies of the successful applicant.
