At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
Electrical Safety Engineer Job Description
As an Electrical Safety Engineer in the Prevention & Safety Engineering Expertise Section of HSE-OH&S, you will take up the role of the CERN specialist for electrical safety, joining a multidisciplinary team of safety experts, covering several engineering domains.
Electrical safety at CERN covers domains such as distribution networks, special CERN equipment (Radio Frequencies, Power Converters, particle detectors, etc.) as well as non-ionizing radiation (NIR) and Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC).
- Contribute to the projects/experiments safety support activity of the HSE-OHS Group, internally coordinating the contributions of different safety specialists.
- Support, check and validate design calculations prepared by different CERN technical departments. This activity can relate to highly specialised equipment, not fully covered by common standards.
- Perform applied research activities on accident scenarios related to electrical equipment and provide technical guidance and input for vulnerability assessments of CERN equipment and networks; lead task forces or projects on, for example, the aging of cables in CERN's accelerator environment.
- Support in safety audits and technical reviews.
- Check conformity of engineering and tendering specifications with standard safety requirements.
- Design and deliver safety training related to all electrical safety domains.
- Write CERN safety documentation including rules, instructions and guidelines.
Electrical Safety Engineer Job Requirements
Master's degree or PhD, or equivalent relevant experience in the field of electrical engineering, applied physics, or equivalent. Professional certification in the field of electrical safety, or a related field, is an asset.
- Experience in designing and safety validation of distribution networks, RF equipment, power converters and/or particle physics detectors. Experience in the manufacturing phase would be an advantage.
- Demonstrated experience in the use of software packages for circuit analysis: ability to assess the conformity of a design with applicable safety standards and principles would be an asset.
- Experience in research activities related to electrical safety engineering is an advantage.
- Occupational safety and risk management: familiarity with qualitative and quantitative electrical risk assessment
- Knowledge of non-ionization radiations hazards and protection: familiarity with EMC and laser safety would be an asset
- Construction, test and commissioning of electrical circuits and networks
- Electrical equipment design: deep knowledge of the European standards for electrical design and risk assessment. Knowledge of relevant IEC standards would be an asset.
