Safety Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commonly asked questions about Safety:

How do I become a Safety Professional?

We Pride ourselves in providing our clients with a higher quality of safety professionals, who in turn, take the opportunity to save lives and improve the quality of health and safety at the job site through education, experience, and example.

That's an excellent question, we suggest about three different paths to chart.


- The Young man's Path: If you are just starting out in Life, meaning still very young, we suggest to enroll in some Safety course such as: Industrial Hygiene, Safety Engineering, CHST, OSHT,  BS in Occupational Safety & Health, etc.


- The Average man's Path: If you have been working in Construction, in a craft for a few years, you have what we call "experience", now what do you do with it? We suggest seeking Certifications and Training that are more specific to your craft. Every new Safety Professional should take an OSHA 510 course from an OSHA certified outreach program.  This course is the prerequisite to the OSHA 500 course, specifically for trainers/Managers that teach OSHA 10/30 courses. The Occupational Safety and Health Standards for the Construction Industry course will cover OSHA policies, procedures, and standards for the construction industry as well as safety and health principles. Each section of the OSHA Construction Standards will be covered. Special emphasis will be placed on those areas that are more hazardous, using OSHA standards as a guide. OSHA’s 29 CFR 1926 Construction Safety Standard and 1910 General Safety Standard will be provided. 


- The Older man's Path: If you are a little older, and maybe looking to finish out their career earning some easy money, then Safety is for you; but how do you get hired? We highly suggest taking the OSHA 510 course as a way to amplify your knowledge of Safety Practices and to pad your no doubt already extensive resume. 

How do I Get a Job as a Safety Professional?

We Pride ourselves in providing our clients with a higher quality of safety professionals, who in turn, take the opportunity to save lives and improve the quality of health and safety at the job site through education, experience, and example.
Also a very excellent question! Here are a couple ideas: 

- Ask someone who IS a Safety Professional how they got started. Chances are they had a friend or a relative that got them hired. You are probably better off building up a reliable network of friends and other Safety Professionals to help you chase Job leads. However, most people don't get to spend time hunting for new safety jobs when they're busy working the first regular job they can find.

- Search Online want ads for Safety Jobs. A lot of people try this, most Safety Professionals have their resume with a couple of Job Search sites sending them emails every five minutes. This idea can yield some potential leads, which you also need to spend time chasing. Most of those leads might end up at dead ends because you are not qualified or experienced.

- Get yourself an Agent! We HIGHLY suggest this course of action! A Safety staffing agency specializes in finding Safety Jobs, not job posting with the word: "Safety" in the posting somewhere; but an actual Safety Consultant job in any number of fields.
