Safety Assistant (Management Development Program) Job Description

For more than 30 years, our Management Development Associate program has developed our future leaders. This program allows you to embark on a personal and professional development experience a classroom can’t offer.

As a Safety Assistant (Management Development Program) you’ll be immersed in a highly technical and quality-driven production environment to play a key role in ensuring we have the appropriate people resources and safety awareness to achieve our standards of continuous improvement and manufacturing excellence. You’ll learn our operations, how they apply to safety and how safety interacts with other factory functions, such as human resources, production, engineering, information systems, quality assurance, supply chain, and finance. Collaboration with your safety mentor and peers is essential to this role, as they will help you leverage your new business knowledge to deliver top-notch safety analysis and support to the factory for the duration of your program experience.

Why a leadership developmental role with us versus somewhere else? Taking the safety path of our Management Development Associate program is a full-time position that puts you on the fast track to management on the manufacturing side of our business. You are the future leader.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Implement and utilize assessment and risk prediction processes to ensure effective identification, communication, and mitigation of workplace hazards
  • Investigate work related incidents to identify root causes and actions to prevent recurrence
  • Conduct safety inspections and observations
  • Make recommendations for safety improvements throughout the plant
  • Provide effective Safety Training that includes Safety Orientation programs for new hires and contractors
  • Organize, coordinate, and conduct training for the Safety Committee


  • Must be open to relocation to one or more of our 23 production facilities across the U.S.
  • Education: Bachelor’s Degree in Safety, Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health, or a related field
  • Experience (Years/Type): 1+ years of safety experience in a manufacturing, industrial, warehouse, military, or related environment

It is our business imperative to remain a very inclusive workplace.

To our veterans and separated service members, you're at the forefront of our minds as we recruit top talent to join Nestlé. The skills you've gained while serving our country, such as flexibility, agility and leadership, are much like the skills that will make you successful in this role. In addition, with our commitment to an inclusive work environment, we recognize the exceptional engagement and innovation displayed by individuals with disabilities. Nestlé seeks such skilled and qualified individuals to share our mission where you’ll join a cohort of others who have chosen to call Nestlé home.
