About the Role

The Presidio Trust is seeking a Safety & Occupational Health Specialist to serve in a pivotal role in implementing safety policies, procedures, and training programs for the Presidio Trust.

The Safety & Occupational Health Specialist will collaboratively partner with individuals at all levels, from across the organization to run a robust, professional, and proactive safety program.
