Sets standards, compiles reports and submits to various regulatory agencies. Services may include: safety, contractor safety, occupational health, process safety, fire protection, environmental, distribution, and/or ergonomics.” The specific competencies in this role lie in fire protection and life safety management systems. More specifically, the person fulfilling this position is responsible to lead and manage the Site Emergency Response Team ( ERT) function and processes associated with ERT; conduct/coordinate the testing, maintenance & inspection of Site fire protection, emergency response and life safety systems; and serve as a resource in the siting, design and installation of new facilities with the expressed intent of preventing or minimizing losses related to fire, chemical release or other serious incidents. This position helps to assure compliance with regulatory, state and federal code, and corporate requirements pertaining to site emergency response and fire protection systems.

Conduct or coordinate ERT training for business personnel as requested. This may include activities such as emergency evacuation drills, fire extinguisher training, spill response, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) training, and first aid.
Coordinate testing, maintenance, and inspection (TMI) for site emergency response equipment and fire protection systems. Elements of TMI scope include:
