Safety Manager in Bakersfield:
"Lots of resistance to change here."
This company has operated as if OSHA never existed for so long when I was made Safety Manager/Director and tried to modernize our processes, I met extreme resistance. I have managed to create a IIPP and instituted JSA's, Emergency Response plans and Equipment maintenance and training certifications. However every step has been met with resistance and delays. On top of that when they review performance they ask what I have accomplished and I tell them....they give me a mediocre review. When I ask to get more education, to get a degree in EH&S they tell me they cant afford to be sending people to school for degrees, but when I ask for a raise because I am being paid at the very bottom of the scale for my position and responsibility they tell me they can't justify a pay increase for me because if they did I would be making more than the field manager. If you dont mind resistance and low pay this might be the job for you.
