Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone could give me any information on this position-mostly I'm curious about if there is promotion potential there, since it would be more geared towards administrative work in the area directors office. Could it possibly lead to an investigator position? All comments on working for osha in an administrative role are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

I don't work for OSHA, but I know people that were OSHA investigators that started out in other positions. I happen to be in the same series as the investigators in another agency.

What do you bring to the table?

Work construction?


Industrial Hygiene?

Know the NFPA, NEC, 1910? EPA and Hazardous Materials laws?


Veteran who worked in the construction, aviation or shipboard trades on active duty?

Maybe it will maybe it won't.
