"Edward was a member of my senior management team, serving as the site Health, Safety, Environmental and Facilities (HSE&F) Senior Manager. Our site was quite a complex mix of products, customers and local, state and federal regulations. Despite the complexity, Edward built a high performing work team that changed the way the HSE&F functioned at the site. Edward and his team instituted, and successfully performed initial certification of both the ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 programs. Edward’s other major accomplishments were the creation of the volatile organic compound (VOC) program for the site, no notices of violations (NOVs) under his watch, and achievement of a total case incident rate (TCIR) of 0.18. Initially, Edward managed the HSE&F functions at the site but was ultimately given responsibility for Facilities as well because of the close link in operations and because he was capable of getting tough tasks completed. I highly recommend Edward in any endeavor he pursues."
