    Mr.Edet, I thank you kindly for such an informal summary of needed information. I just received my OSHA 30, I have about 10 years construction experience with labor or post construction clean-up. I was just asked to be a part of the Safety Personnel Team, how can I prepare myself for such a rewarding task?

      With the OSHA 30 and a construction experience, you have acquired some specialized information to act in the said role. Since you will be working as a part of a team, you will learn on the job.

      Some specific information:
      – Get to understand the company’s HSE policy
      – Understand the organogram
      – Ask of your job description as part of the team.
      – Plan to enroll for NEBOSH IGC
      – Be open to learn, and ask questions.

    Toolbox meetings is operations, should be the responsibility of “operations” team leader Although, safety officer participates and provide inputs on the safety aspects..

      It is not a standing other, instead it all depends on the organizational structure. There are lots of organizations where toolbox meetings are anchored by a Safety personnel.

      Thanks for the reaction.
