Environmental Compliance Specialist Reviews

What is it like working as an Environmental Compliance Specialist?

Environmental Compliance Specialist in Lake Charles:
"My Job As An LDAR Database Administrator."
Pros: The casual atmosphere is laid back and we can dress as we please. Sometimes when we are really sick, we can telecommute.
Cons: I can't stand having to depend on inadequately trained or just plain untrained workers in the field to supply me with the information that I have to have in order to formulate the reports. The information I need is either late or incomplete and most of the time it's simply just wrong. Some of these field technicians have access to the database and will incorrectly enter information and in addition to that there is always pieces missing. I feel as if I am babysitting and cleaning up other people's regulatory messes constantly. The reports are federally regulated and have to be turned in on a strict schedule.
