Dear Hiring Executive:
Having worked for 15 years in chemical engineering for the power metallurgy industry before beginning coursework for my forthcoming Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, I have both the theoretical knowledge and practical, hands-on experience in loss prevention and control in industrial settings to qualify for a challenging position as an Occupational Health & Safety Professional in your organization.
Offering outstanding team and project-management skills and a strong operations background in hazardous chemicals environments and training of technical emergency response crews, I am ever flexible and accepting of increased responsibilities. My work has enabled me to develop expertise in a broad range of industrial applications, including chemical processing, machine tooling, fabrication, hazardous material handling, manufacturing, building controls, and laboratory setup and experimentation. In addition to my full-time job as a research technologist, I have devoted my spare time to serve as an instructor for rural volunteer fire departments in techniques for environmental
emergency response. Among the highlights of my work are the following:
- Lessening handling risks for a dangerous industrial gas by configuring available technology to provide a means of evaluating levels of concentration.
- Co-managing a respiratory-protection program for a chemicals research department and facilitating the formation of a chemical-spill response team.
- Leading project teams to develop new products and processes, including environmental health and safety procedures.
I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how I may be of service to your company. In the interim, I appreciate the time you have spent reviewing this letter and the accompanying resume.
