Safety Supervisor Reviews

What is it like working as a Safety Supervisor?

Safety Supervisor in Conyers:
"Over Worked and Underpaid."
Pros: I like to work with the employees to help them understand safety and what it means to them. I like breaking down OSHA regulations and applying them to the work place. I also enjoy making a difference in the employees life by showing them that I care and I want to help take care of them in an injury. I also really enjoy the trending data from gathering it to calculating it out and seeing the positive trends that come from doping the job right populate on my charts.
Cons: I agreed to stay in safety after being promoted to an environmental job, because the safety manager, my boss quit. It has been six months with no replacement and I am the only person in safety for 800 employees. I am super frustrated by the idea that sine I am in safety, its my job to make safety and their job to make product. I also get calls all hours of night for safety related incidents serious and small.
