Also participating in the development of safety guidelines, conducting thorough analysis of potential hazards, and proposes solutions to mitigate risks. Excellent technical, analytical and communication skills are crucial for success in this position.

    • Submission of required additional information or clarification to LR;
      • Preparation of any update or remedy required to sustain and solve any non-conformity rising along the way
      • Clarify and strengthen our technical solution in case any objection may develop (i.e. some "negotiation" skills are nice to have)
    • Co-ordination of HAZID and other Risk assessment activity
    • Liaise with possible external consultants
    • Coordinate submission of the type approval certification to LR for all the unit subsystems
