Safety and Occupational Health Manager
Responsible for insuring my organization provides a safe and
healthy workplace for our employees.
I was a registered nurse that took a job as an Occupational Health
Nurse and when the Safety and Occupational Health Manager position
came open I applied because this would be a way to broaden my
eperience, provide me more challenges, and get me a promotion.
Recommend looking at college programs that offer a degree in
environmental health and safety degrees. This is a growing field
and provides a number of options - full time employment as well as
part time and consult type jobs. Job security is great, because,
as long as people are at risk from hazards the safety and occupational
health field will be required.
