Environmental Health and Safety Intern

“I loved working with professionals in my field, as well as skilled laborers offsite. In my position, I was able to dabble in a lot of subjects; TO15 air sampling, PIT tagging, chemical inventory, and hazardous waste management. I would recommend anyone who enjoys varied work to apply for an internship with SCL.”
