Abbreviation for supervisor


The simple version of my question would be: "What is the abbreviation of 'Supervisor'"?

However, I will add some explaining. I am abbreviating the word "operator" as "Op" already (size constraints) so would it be understandable if I abbreviate supervisor as "Sv"?

In isolation Sv would not be understood, it could mean server or serviceman or savant ...

In context, especially if you have used the full word once, or better still defined your abbreviation you will be understood.

When the store opens the Supervisor (Sv.) must ensure ... The Sv. must then ...
