Application for an Environment, Health and Safety Advisor
I would like to apply for the role of Environment, Health and Safety Advisor as you have advertised in the (where, when) and I have enclosed my latest CV for you to see my experiences in detail.
I have done some qualifications relating to this position and worked in an environmental role previously. I have completed my NEBOSH qualification and have been responsible for Health and Safety procedures in previous companies.
I am very interested in the role that you have advertised and I like to ensure that companies/people follow certain standards and guidelines and protect their staff and their business areas. I think it is important to inform people when they are unsure of what procedures they need to be following. The Environmental rules and Health and Safety procedures are in place to protect people working and the publicity surrounding that area and are extremely important to adhere to these procedures.
In my previous roles, I have done environmental testing, risk assessments and monitored forms to be completed and updated and I feel confident in doing this. I am a very organised individual who likes to ensure that my work is done to an excellent standard and feel that a career within this environment is very interesting and challenging which is what I am looking for.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my application and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
