AUSTIN, Texas –(excerpts from recent articles)
"...Jobs posted recently pay between $14 and $34 per hour. Some of the jobs include: administrative support assistant, civil engineer, communications specialist, construction cost estimator, courier, crisis counselor, customer service specialist, environmental specialist, floodplain management specialist, graphics specialist, hazard mitigation outreach specialist, historic preservation specialist, registered nurse and voluntary agency liaison, among others."
"...In Texas, Houston is considering a 50-percent increase in pay for haulers and Harris County, which encompasses the city, is also offering incentives to recruit more trucks."
"...Construction laborers may be unskilled, but they're generally better paid than most unskilled workers. As construction contractors migrated to the most storm-damaged areas after Katrina, the demand for construction labor drove wages up.
General clean-up laborers are also in high demand immediately. The work may be as unglamorous as shoveling the debris out of storm drains, but it can pay well.
Site guards are also needed. If you've worked as a guard before and have a good recommendation or two, you'll quickly find employment after a big storm."

Requirements for Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Professionals
Making a Safe Work Environment
Your business needs to keep its employees safe.But what does this mean, and what does it require? As an Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) professional, you are responsible for customizing a safety program for your place of business. In doing so, you’ll take into account anything and everything that impacts employee safety. Successful EHS programs include measures to address just about every aspect of the work environment. You’ve got to think about ergonomics, air quality, sound levels—indeed, anything that impacts the health and well-being of employees. Training and inspection preparation aren’t just about teaching employees the rules. Safety violations happen even when workers know the rules and are aware of the penalties for breaking them. What they really need to understand are the underlying reasons for the rules.
What is EHS?
Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) departments in corporations and government agencies might develop ways to deal with waste, comply with environmental regulations, and reduce the company’s (or agency’s) carbon footprint. But the most common responsibility is to develop a safety program. The program has to minimize the risk of injury in the workplace in accordance with governmental regulations.
Where do these regulations come from?
Global EHS guidelines are established by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector lending arm of the World Bank Group. U.S. organizations are governed by EHS regulations found in Code of Federal Regulations. These regulations are also called Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) regulations, sometimes written as HES or HSE.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the federal government’s workplace safety policing agency. OSHA assures safe and healthful working conditions by setting standards and providing training, outreach, education and assistance. The training and inspection requirements we’ll be talking about are primarily OSHA requirements.

Environmental certification, as well as all Safety Certifications, is a form of environmental regulation and development where a company can voluntarily choose to comply with predefined processes or objectives set forth by the certification service.
The primary motivations for many companies who choose to implement Environmental Certification schemes are to provide an ethical product for the consumers, increase sustainable development, improve the image of the company, gain a better relationship with stakeholders and to make a higher profit.
