Raytheon Principal Systems Engineer in Tucson, Arizona

Do you actively seek out problems to solve? Do you love helping people out? If your answer is an enthusiastic yes then you may be the person we want to join our team as a Principal System Safety Engineer (SSE). The System Safety Engineering Department is seeking a Principal System Safety Engineer to support development and implementation of our System Safety Programs, with an emphasis on flight test operations, field, laboratory and equipment safety activities. System Safety Engineering ensures our systems perform their required mission functions safely through their required environments while meeting overall cost constraints. This position will be supporting programs specifically by insuring that our products are safely designed, built, integrated and used for lab, field and production testing. The Principal System Safety Engineer will use DoD4145.26M DoD Contractor Manual for Ammunition and Explosives, MIL-STD-1472 for Human Engineering, Raytheon Corporate instructions and 29 CFR/1910 General Industrial safety regulations to ensure the design is safe for operational use, field testing and production activities. What hazards are presented to the integration, test personnel and operators while testing? Does the Unit Under Test (UUT) contain explosives or energetics? Are the system interlocks to protect against inadvertent activation of the explosives or energy sources adequate? Are high voltages or energy sources present during integration and testing, and if so, are there adequate protections to prevent inadvertent exposure during operation, test or maintenance activities? Is there a hazard for Electromagnetic Emissions exposure? These are the questions the Principal SSE answers every day. So what does a Principal SSE do? They analyze drawings, Bills of Materials, test configurations, integration and test procedures and work instructions to identify all hazards presented to the operator, test personnel or maintainers. They create safety reports to document the hazards presented and design and verify the safety interlocks that prevents the hazard from becoming a mishap. In addition to influencing the product design, the Principal SSE provides specific OSHA, EHS and equipment safety guidance to integration, test and field personnel for personnel safety topics covered under 29 CFR/1910. They are responsible for interacting with the approval authorities until the production or lab use approval is obtained. The SSE regularly interfaces with lead engineers, Operations, and Program Management, and RMS EHS organizations across all RMS products to perform these safety analyses. The Principal SSE requires a high degree of self-motivation and ability to effectively interface with co-workers across all RMS product lines, Engineering, Operations and Safety Review Boards.
