Health, safety, environmental hazards – these are more than just buzzwords for you.
They’re what you care about. You’re passionate about creating safe environments in which people can work and live without risk to their health.
So are we. We’re T. Harris Environmental Management, a leading Canadian environmental consulting firm, established in 1979. We specialize in environmental services, hazardous materials management, industrial hygiene, and occupational health and safety. We empower companies to create safe and healthy environments.
If you’re ready for a new challenge in the environmental industry, then search no further because we have what you’ve been looking for!
As our new Environmental Technician, your main goals are to become a subject matter expert in our areas of expertise and provide our full range of environmental services to clients.
These include (and are not limited to) services like: environmental site assessments, asbestos and mould assessments, indoor air quality assessments, lead surveys, and more.
You’ll spend about half your time working independently in the field, and the other half of your time working alongside the team in our Toronto office.
You’ll conduct a variety of environmental assessments by surveying sites, monitoring and collecting samples, and gathering relevant information and data by interviewing client representatives. With this information, you’ll generate detailed technical reports that will help our clients achieve safer environments.
The autonomy and flexibility of this role will give you a deep sense of satisfaction, as will the chance to work with an incredibly supportive management team who is dedicated to your success and professional development.
Your success will also depend on your initiative to learn. You’ll enhance your existing knowledge of environmental regulations, hazardous materials, and occupational health and safety through self-directed study and one-on-one learning with senior members of our team. There’s a lot to learn, and that excites you.
With your environmental field experience, you’ll be ready to jump right in here. And while your experience is important, you’ll thrive in this role because you are:
- A strong communicator – you’re great at getting your message across in person, and in writing. Our clients and our team will appreciate the clarity you provide across all mediums.
- Detail-oriented – you take thorough notes. Your documentation is accurate and concise, and you never miss any details.
- Organized – you take a systematic approach to your projects and you keep up with multiple priorities easily.
