As a result of both steady growth and geographic expansion, Midwestern Insurance Alliance has created a new position on our loss control team. If you are an experienced loss control/safety professional and have ever wanted to land a career within a company that is large enough to provide the stability and employment security you need, but small enough that you are valued throughout the company for your knowledge, opinions and insight, not an expendable part of a bureaucracy, then Midwestern may be the place for you.
Midwestern has a strong transportation industry focus. So if you have a solid understanding of the trucking industry and familiarity with FMCSA regulations this could be your perfect match; however this is not a DOT compliance position. In fact, if you have experience with a wide range of industries, keep reading. In this position you will leverage your knowledge, skill, and experience to assess the injury exposures and safety management efforts of trucking companies, logging crews, recycling entities, wood products businesses, and more.
To provide efficient services, the ideal candidate will reside relatively central to the NC, SC, and VA territory.
