Antora Energy

Antora Energy

San Jose, CA, USA
Posted on Friday, June 7, 2024

At Antora, we’re on a mission to stop climate change. And we can’t do that unless we tackle the 30% of global emissions that come from industry.

Antora is unlocking zero-emissions industrial energy, cheaper than fossil fuels. Antora’s thermal batteries store energy from renewables as heat for days on end, delivering that stored energy as heat and power at the scale and temperatures that large industrial operations demand. We’re on a path to eliminate gigatons of emissions while strengthening domestic manufacturing, curbing industrial air pollution, and enhancing America’s clean energy leadership.

We are growing our company with people who put team and mission first, value connection through laughter and joy, and build with humility and openness. We are committed to continue building a diverse, passionate, and creative team dedicated to a future where every industrial facility, everywhere on earth, is powered by abundant, low-cost, zero-emissions energy.

Who you are

You are a seasoned professional in at least one of the elements of Environmental, Health, or Safety and have a passion to be an expert in all three. You are someone who isn’t afraid of getting your hands dirty, be it by literally working side by side with the people that make Antora the amazing company it is…, or by putting in the time to build the systems and processes that underlie the best EH&S culture you can imagine. You are not afraid of doing what needs to be done: Antora is a new company who is going to change the world and it matters how we do it.

This role is a unique opportunity for someone wanting to be involved in developing an EH&S culture from the ground up. The role will be an essential partner to Antora’s Head of EH&S to create and build upon all aspects of environmental, health and safety programs.

This role is not destined to address just one or two of these topics; the ideal candidate wants to potentially learn about all of these, support several more, and definitely master as many as possible. We are changing the world and need people who are willing to lean in to help us achieve our Mission in a way that aligns with our values

Position Summary

The EH&S Specialist will work side by side with the Head of EHS&S to build out Antora’s environmental, health and safety programs to support the build out a manufacturing facility, an on site demonstration plant, and our future projects for our customers, while supporting the R&D efforts for our future lines of business. This role will be involved in the many if not the majority of these efforts and will own responsibility for several.

Roles & Responsibilities

  • Proactively identify gaps, opportunities, and threats to the company and help in prioritizing and executing closure plans for these issues.
  • Own the development, deployment, and/or sustainability of assigned EH&S programs in a methodical and professional manner including but not limited to:
    • Traditional safety programs like lockout tagout, confined space entry, electrical safety, and working at heights.

    • Health programs including respiratory protection, industrial hygiene exposure assessments, Hazcom, and ergonomics
    • Human and Organizational Performance (HOP) culture development
    • Developing interactive and engaging training and educational programs
    • Physical security programs for our facilities and employee safety
    • Elements of Process Safety related to our business
  • Be willing to help strategize solutions for the big issues while also being willing to do the hard work of maintaining our processes. (You may be posting signs one day, devising solutions to address our biggest gaps the next, and presenting to the whole company the next - or all in one day.)

Key Qualifications

  • 5+ years of experience in environmental, health, and / or safety in a manufacturing, industrial, or similar environment.
  • A bachelor's degree in an EH&S relevant discipline or similar science-based degree.
  • Constantly improving proficiency in researching and monitoring regulations and industry best practices (e.g., OSHA, EPA, DTSC, ACGIH, NIOSH, NFPA, Fire Code).
  • Strong ability to manage multiple projects in a disciplined manner to ensure deliverables for key priorities are met in a timely manner.
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills that can adapt to the shop floor, to training rooms, to speaking to senior management.
  • A mindset that approaches work with openness and humility with the goal of finding the best solution to an issue that is in alignment with our Mission.
  • Ability to work in a fast paced work environment with conflicting priorities with a balance of patience and determination.

Additional Qualifications Desired

  • CSP, CIH desired and, lacking that, a willingness to achieve one or both
  • Experience and passion for working with Human and Organizational Performance (HOP) principles
