The Company

DuluxGroup is a manufacturer and marketer of products that protect, maintain and enhance the spaces and places in which we live and work. From household rooms transformed by the latest designer colours, to the ripe tomatoes in the garden, to the latest in garage door design and technology, to the industrial coatings that protect landmark infrastructure such as bridges and the construction chemicals that reinforce them; DuluxGroup products are at work. Our brands have been woven into the fabric of the communities where we operate, helping consumers to live better and more comfortable lives.

The Role

Managing the risks associated with hazardous chemicals is an important priority for the DuluxGroup business. A new management process has been developed to ensure that we stay abreast of international toxicological and regulatory developments and that we apply a consistent approach across all DuluxGroup businesses to managing chemical hazards. The process focuses on development of comprehensive risk management plans for chemicals identified as a potential concern.

You will undertake the necessary background research into chemical hazards, regulatory classification and toxicology to enable the businesses to develop these risk management plans.

The role primarily involves:

  • conducting research into the regulatory hazard classification, exposure standards and relevant toxicology studies for a range of chemicals used in our businesses,
  • documenting the research in a background report that businesses can use as a basis for chemical risk management plans.

About You

Ideally you will be a post-graduate or graduate student with qualifications in medical sciences, applied science or occupational health and safety. Undergraduate students toward the end of a relevant degree will also be considered.

The position requires:

  • a sound understanding of chemistry, human toxicology and ecotoxicology
  • experience accessing and interpreting chemical hazard and toxicological information from key sources (ECHA, NICNAS, PSHA, NTP, US_EPA etc)
  • the ability to collect and summarise large amounts of research data and strong report writing skills.
