What is a Site Supervisor? A Site safety and health supervisor (or official) refers to the individual on a hazardous waste site who is;

  1. Responsible to the employer for site safety;
  2. Has the authority and knowledge necessary to implement the site safety and health plan;
  3. Verifies compliance with applicable safety and health requirements.

The supervisor must constantly watch over and inspect both the workplace and work procedures, keeping in mind the three E’s of safety: Engineering, Education, and Enforcement. It is the supervisor’s job to work with safety and health professionals, designers, engineers, maintenance, and personnel staff to engineer as many hazards out of the workplace as possible, to educate employees in safe work practices and procedures, and to enforce all safety rules and policies. In this role, the supervisor acts as investigator, safety researcher, and advocate.
