If you know of anyone interested in becoming a compliance officer for Cal/OSHA, now is the time for them to put in their application with the State (see URLs below).
The application period closes this Friday, January 20th – so all new applications must be filed this week! Once an application is filed, the applicant will sit for an oral exam, and then be interviewed by the District Manager who has field inspector positions to fill.
We are hoping to increase the number of Cal/OSHA inspectors with technical skills, with hands-on OHS experience, and with a desire to protect workers on the job. The agency pays well (see application forms for salary scales), and there is a new leadership interested in high-quality, thorough inspections which can identify the hazards on site, motivate the employers to fix them, and level the playing field for employers who already take their OHS responsibilities seriously.
Please circulate this email to anyone and everyone you think would be interested in a compliance job at Cal/OSHA. Application deadline is this Friday, January 20th!
Thanks for your help in spreading the word.
