Cottingham and Butler HazMat Response (Ammonia) Trainer/Safety Consultant (Home-based position - IA) in Des Moines, Iowa

Are you tired of going to the same location every day, working with the same people? You should consider becoming a safety consultant.

Why consulting?

You will be able to share your expertise with food processing/construction/manufacturing/staffing companies of varying sizes and locations throughout the United States. Two things can surely be promised - No two days will EVER be the same and you will learn something new every day as trainings are conducted. Safety Management Services Company (SMSC), a subsidiary of Cottingham & Butler, Inc. (23rd largest insurance brokerage in the U.S.) is currently seeking a bright and highly motivated individual to join our team of safety consultants.

Typical projects may include:

This position includes safety consulting and training for maintenance personnel in the skills necessary to respond to ammonia incidents through hands-on training with Level A hazmat suits while also helping other companies to reduce their potential injury exposure. Additional tasks include Gap analysis safety assessments, hazardous materials response team training specific to ammonia, jobsite inspections, mock OSHA compliance investigations, planning and presenting at risk control workshops/safety seminars, writing technical reports, developing safety service plans, developing and conducting safety webinars and employee training programs, while staying current with federal regulations and hot topics across many industries.


We prefer candidates with safety or operational knowledge and experience within the manufacturing, construction and staffing industries. Familiarity with the OSHA Regulations (1910 and 1926), Process Safety Management Standard (1910.119) and a minimum of three years of safety experience (industrial and/or food processing facilities with ammonia) is preferred. A CSP, ASP or ARM, or working towards any of these certifications is preferred, but not mandatory. Travel is required, varies weekly and typically consists of 2-4 overnights per week.
