Positions in this job family are assigned responsibilities involving the administration of an agency safety program or providing consultative services to the public or private sector in planning, developing, implementing and administering occupational health and safety programs. This includes promoting the adoption by agency management and safety personnel of new policies, safety equipment and programs directed toward reducing accidents and improving safety awareness; preparing and delivering public group presentations pertaining to health and safety practices; and providing guidance, assistance and training to other safety personnel in the performance of assigned tasks.
The Safety Consultant job family consists of four levels which are distinguished by the complexity of assignments, the size and scope of the program, the level of expertise required to perform the duties assigned, and the responsibility assigned for providing leadership to others.
This is the career level of the job family where employees are assigned duties and responsibilities at the full-performance level and perform a wide variety of tasks involving planning, organizing and implementing an occupational health and safety hazards program which is small in size and scope. Some positions may be assigned responsibility for conducting workplace inspections as a Safety Consultant or Loss Prevention Specialist and/or providing assistance to employers in the prevention of industrial or other accidents. Employees will conduct comprehensive industrial and/or other workplace inspections to identify actual or potential safety hazards and other dangers. Inspections are performed in either public or private sector workplaces according to the division to which the position is assigned. Tasks are performed independently and are concerned with the identification and correction of mechanical, structural or other hazards which result in physical injury to the worker or damage to the workplace.
Education and Experience requirements at this level consist of a bachelor’s degree in geology, safety, engineering or a closely related field and two (2) years of experience in industrial relations, safety, safety inspection, safety education, engineering or risk management; or an equivalent combination of education and experience, substituting one year of experience in industrial relations, safety, safety inspection, safety education, engineering or risk management for each year of the required education.
