I'm having a real struggle translating this satisfactorily. My only English reference so far is UK H&S regulations. But they refer only to 'first-aiders' and 'appointed persons' (see http://www.hse.gov.uk/startup/content/faq.htm).
All help appreciated!

In the end, I went for a hybrid of David's answer and the UK HSE term: appointed safety person. I felt that 'supervisor' or 'officer' is still too grand a title for a task that is done only very occasionally alongside the person's main duties.
