    My day varies from a day review project blueprints and specifications to conducting workplace inspections or accident investigations to writing safety policies and procedures. Most of my work depends upon contact with shop employees and being able to communicate well with people at all levels of the organization. Also, I am fortunate enough to have developed a relationship with people in the American Society of Safety Engineers and have spoken about topics such as SAfety Through Design, Fall Proteciton, and making Historic Buildings Safe at national Professioanl development Conferences. If you would like any informaiton on school programs I suggest contacting the society online or you can ask me more questions through Engineer Girl. Good luck in your endeavours!!
