Safety Coordinator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Safety Coordinator?

Safety Coordinator in Peru:
Pros: Fast paced and ever changing requirements to keep employees safe and show that safety is a partnership with them rather than something forced on them. Extremely rewarding to see the days without incidents climb as more people report safety issues that would not have been reported a year ago.
Cons: Most employees seem to see safety as something that is forced on them and this is not a position in which it is easy to maintain friendships with production employees who seem to go against the status quo and feel that safety is not a requirement. Learning to walk the line between friendly safety coordinator and stern enforcer of safety rules can be difficult.

Safety Coordinator in Tulsa:
"Office and manufacturing environments, managing people."
Pros: I'm constantly challenged and improving my skills, frequently taken out of my comfort zones and learning from those experiences.
Cons: Public speaking, but I'm adapting to it.

Safety Coordinator in Victoria:
"OSHA Certified Safety Director."
Pros: Making sure all employees are safe, and able to go home at the end of the day... The same way they came to work... Intact.
Cons: Some micro-management from some supervisors that are not trained or schooled in safety.

Safety Coordinator in Midland:
"Safety Is A Lifestyle, Not A Job."
Pros: You can see the changes you make in and industry on a daily basis.
Cons: When things do go wrong, people can die.
