Corporate Safety Advisor
Corporate Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaFebruary 12, 2014
I travelled to all work locations, conducted a thorough audit of our key processes. Upon completion a summary of findings were generated with recommendations. I was also assigned to several special projects varying from simple safety coverage to analyzing specific job tasks not normal for our business unit and creating a plan to complete it safely. The best part of the job was working with employees in the field.
Pros
Working with employees in the field
Cons
Management Politics
