Risk management is a team sport
Due to the complexity of the products and the resulting variety of topics in risk management, Tobias has many different interfaces in the project. As a risk manager, you should also look beyond your own nose and have an understanding of the different requirements and needs of your colleagues. “That’s precisely what I love about my job. I’m not working on my own, but always collaborating with many various colleagues. It really is a true team sport,” says Tobias. Being able to accompany his products over their entire life cycle is something he also really enjoys: “My work doesn’t stop once the products are ready. I have to keep an eye on them to see what happens to them in the market and check whether they continue to be safe.” He also needs to assume this supervisory function in his role as quality manager His main task here is to evaluate development results and ensure compliance with internal processes as well as to improve these processes. In addition to safety, he also focuses on the quality of products and processes.
People are the top priority
More than anything else an analytical mindset and communication skills are therefore fundamental to his job. “You also need to be both a generalist and specialist for risk and quality management,” adds Tobias. You need to have broad knowledge of the technology and application of the products, but also be a technical expert in your field. Tobias wouldn’t work anywhere else than WEINMANN Emergency. It’s not just working for a company that develops meaningful and interesting products, but it’s also the interaction between colleagues that he really appreciates. “We discuss issues on an equal footing, are goal-oriented and, as a young father, I can also confirm the good life-work balance. The focus is on people at WEINMANN Emergency,” says Tobias.
