Bored with doing the same thing each day? Good at juggling lots of different projects? Eager to learn more? Want to work somewhere where your knowledge and skills are appreciated?
Our mission is protecting the lives of workers. We’re a women-owned, well established, growing company that works with small local businesses to support that mission. We’re looking for someone to join us in providing EHS consulting services to those businesses. That includes training employees, conducting site visits, dealing with regulators, developing safety and health programs, facilitating safety committees – and whatever else our clients challenge us with.

As an organization, we strive for excellence, consider every client important, and think that people matter.
