Meet the Occupational Safety and Health Technicians

SCT’s traveling safety technicians are the heartbeat of our safety company. Providing safety staffing services to glass manufacturers makes up the largest part of our traveling techs’ jobs. Depending on the project’s size, glass furnace demolitions and rebuilds can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months or longer.

Serving as Safety Managers, SCT’s technicians often oversee workers from multiple trades, who are all performing different jobs on site. It’s hard work, especially since the plants are spread out all over the country and the techs spend a lot of time away from family and friends. Interested in what our techs do on the road?
