Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name) of Interviewer:
Reference the position title; Address how you found out about the position. If you address this in your cover letter, you will probably have answered a question they had in mind and will add some context to your application. This is a bonus to the recruiter.

Cover Letter Tips
Formulate your ideas and propositions clearly. You don’t want the recruiter to read your Safety Officer cover letter twice in order to understand what you are trying to say. You want your letter to be clear so that the person reading it will understand your message the first time. If your cover letter is unclear, it will shed a negative impression on your application upfront.
This Safety Officer Cover Letter is a very good example of how to tailor your qualifications in function of the position you are applying to.
