Dear Mr. Green:
I learned about your need for an HSE supervisor yesterday through your website with great interest since my qualifications exactly match your requirements. Please accept my enclosed resume for your review and consideration and allow me to explain briefly what makes me a perfect fit for your firm.
In my career with WELLCO, a leading oil and gas exploration and drilling company, I:
• Directed the procurement of suitable PPE for oil and gas well drilling.
• Inaugurated an easy to read safety manual that covers all HSE protocols and SOPs that employees need to know about.
• Generated $50Kby implementing safe and green waste disposal strategies and finding a procurer for byproducts of drilling and gas de-carbonizing procedures.
• Reduced over all accident rates by 40% through apt execution of well chalked out accident prevention strategies at the work site.
As you will note in the accompanying resume my career so far has been an upward journey. Initially hired as a junior safety officer I have consistently continued climbing up the professional ladder and my employers have always found my skills and expertise more than satisfactory.
If you are looking for an HSE supervisor who is committed to the highest standards of workplace safety and is knowledgeable and experienced in the oil and gas sector, call me now at (005) 333-2222 to set up an interview date and time.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
