Agilyx Corporation is a Petrochemical Manufacturing facility in Tigard, Oregon that collects waste Polystyrene (Styrofoam) which would normally be disposed of in the landfill, and through thermal means convert it back into a styrene monomer which can be used to produce more Polystyrene.  The EHS intern position would be more safety oriented, but environmental regulatory issues are also a constant concern.  Continue reading

I am the EHS Manager for Tosoh Quartz, Inc. in Portland, Oregon. We have an open position for a health & safety engineer. Although we are looking for an experienced Health and Safety engineer, we would consider people who could work themselves into the position.

If anyone has any questions, they can email me at chelikson@tosohquartz.com or they can call me at 503-605-5777.

The Corvallis Montessori School here in town (next door to the North co-op) are looking for a community member to sit on our workplace safety committee.

Responsibilities include:

  • Attending a short meeting each month (15 to 30 minutes) to review any concerns raised by staff about workplace safety.
  • 4 safety walk-throughs to complete a facility safety checklist (roughly 1 hour each, September, December, March, and June).

This is a volunteer position but could be a great resume-building experience. I’d also be happy to supply a letter of recommendation on behalf of any individual who can commit through June 2018 and who excels in this capacity.

Interested students can contact me directly (hommela@oregonstate.edu).
