The best job out of my entire career, except for the pay. The lowest pay scale ever for me. There is NO typical day because risk exposures, accidents, property damage, injuries, student activities, etc. are often unpredictable, which is the allure of the job.
I've learned to identify, analyze, implement appropriate controls and monitor their effectiveness as it relates to a diverse, large, urban university and it's numerous study abroad programs.
Management is extremely supportive. My co-workers are the best. Highly capable (I hired some of them) who understand team work automatically and will step to te plate to get the job done.
The hardest part of the job is probably having to constantly prioritize work because of the unexpected. The most enjoyable part is that my department of Safety and Risk Management offers staff, faculty, students and the public at large a level of safety and concern for the well-being of all.
