It can vary depending on the industry to which you refer. Both titles will usually report to the same manager of a particular department or establishment. A supervisor will ensure the operation runs the way the manager wants it to run when they cannot be there themselves. An assistant manager will do the same, but will also assist in other managerial duties such as administration and discipline. The title is sometimes used interchangeably in situations where having both is not required. Some managers will have a personal assistant (PA) as well, who would have very little to do with the operation but will assist in the administration of the department.

For example, in a restaurant, the assistant manager will prepare for an evening days in advance by preparing a door sheet from the reservations and ensuring there are sufficient staff members coming to work. The supervisor(s) will only prepare for an evening a few hours before making sure the staff are in and tables are laid etc. The PA would not be at the service at all, but will be in during daytime hours to take reservations, complaints, enquiries etc. and pass on the relevant information.

While an assistant manager is commonly seen as more senior than a supervisor, they are both 'junior' management and are really working side by side to assist their line manager. Managers who have worked their way up will usually have held both positions as different aspects of their managerial skills are developed in each.

With all of that being said, any professional titles responsibilities and description is completely at the discretion of the employer when creating the contract, and is agreed into when the employee signs the contract.

What are the essential differences in health and safety responsibilities between supervisor and the manager?

There is no essential difference in health and safety responsibilities between supervisor and manager. A supervisor is usually in more direct and more frequent contact with the workers than a manager is and so has the more direct responsibility of ensuring that workers use safe and appropriate procedures when doing their work. But safety is a line responsibility and both the supervisor and the manager are in the management line and therefore responsible for providing the time, resources, and environment in which the work can and will be completed safely.
