Ask the Expert – James Dodd

James Dodd is a Senior Health & Safety Specialist and U.S. Navy veteran with over 20 years of experience in project management, including over a decade in oil-and-gas engineering and regulatory consulting.

What do you find most rewarding about the work that you do?

Working with a variety of companies in a range of industries allows me to use my experience and education to better assist clients with compliance and prevent accidents from occurring.

What are you currently working on?

Environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) compliance objectives for a distillery company, asphalt supplier, explosives developer, and testing for a North American trucking firm and specialty chemical supplier.

How can our clients benefit from this service/particular innovation?

Tank compliance and overall EH&S compliance protects employees from work-related injuries and accidental spills, which directly impacts a company’s ability to thrive. One ounce of oil can contaminate up to 1 million gallons of water, and the average employee injury cost is between $250K to $1.5 million. Many small companies cannot survive incident costs,  it is extremely important to be diligent and practice preventative measures.

What is a little-known fact about you?

I am always on the go and can never sit still for very long. In my free time, I enjoy helping with my daughter’s sports, helping friends or family with projects, or working on some of my own. I also enjoy traveling with my family when we can get away. Family time is best when it’s around the dinner table.
