Located in beautiful Fort St. James, BC where outdoor recreation (such as water sports, fishing, biking, hiking, hunting, skiing and more) is in abundance and where home prices are affordable, BioNorth Energy is looking for an HSE Coordinator to join the family.
BioNorth Energy, formerly the Veolia Fort St. James Green Energy Project, is a joint-venture partnership between the Arrow Group of Companies (Arrow), the Nak’azdli Development Corporation (NDC), the economic development arm of the Nak’azdli First Nation (Nak’azdli), and low-carbon infrastructure developer, Nexus PMG (Nexus).
The Energy Plant is a 40-megawatt biomass power generation facility which began commercial operation in late 2017, under a 30-year electricity purchase agreement (EPA) with BC Hydro.
Making use of forest biomass, such as biologs, wood waste and hog fuel to make electricity is a way for the Province to meet the energy objectives of its CleanBC plan and shift BC to a lower carbon economy. By combining the knowledge and complimentary skillsets of Arrow, the NDC and Nak’azdli, and Nexus PMG, we are ideally positioned to turn the plant into a successful energy producing facility.
Reporting to BioNorth's General Manager and support from Arrow's Director of HSE, the HSE Coordinator will have Health, Safety and Environmental oversight over the Energy Plant and its approx. 30 employees.
Reporting to and working closely with the General Manager Operations, the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Coordinator’s primary role is to provide advice and support on all HSE matters to all employees in order to meet stringent internal policies and standards, legal responsibilities and to promote best practice.
This position monitors compliance with Health Safety and Environmental legislation and BioNorth Energy’s (BNE) policies and standards and reposts accordingly.
The HSE Coordinator also focuses on identifying, evaluating and controlling HSE impacts and risks and leads through exemplary behavior.
