I am also in the Environmental Health & Safety field but have plans to stay put for the next few years while my kids are in school. I have been focused on Industrial Hygiene although it is not truly my passion.

I know it would be a bit of risk but have you considered starting your own consulting business? Traveling around the country conducting ISO audits etc. sounds like it may be a good fit for you. You could be at a site in person for a week or two and then create reports and review supporting documents from anywhere. All it takes is one nationwide or regional customer. Breaking out on your own will be a huge risk but if you have good relationships with previous collogues you may be surprised how high demand can be.

Utilities, municipalities, collages, and commercial retailers all require consultants and all you need is a foot in the right door. I know of two individuals who have created a comfortable lifestyle doing this. One got an in with a utility company and the other with a regional healthcare provider.

Best of luck:
Nate

just curious, what would make a passport dirty?
Anything that would flag at a border, mainly it’s a way of saying there has never been an issue before with it, the holder. However, warrants, legal issues, custody stuff, watch list, hold orders would flag it. And probably other things I am unaware of. Sometimes border crossing at a specific location, within certain dates. Usually pertaining to heightened concerns with conflict zones, ,etc

* I should add, current global entry card as well.

Thanks for that. Hundreds of stamps and visa's in mine over the years and I never thought of this.

Consulting and training go hand in hand. As strange as it may sound, someone is (or should be) getting rich driving around doing basic awareness classes and audits for commercial business you deal with daily. McDonalds, Walgreens, Dollar General, Bank of America, Shell, etc. all need people with our background.

You have a leg up on me with your marine industry experience. My wife and I dream of exploring coastal areas by land and water and would love to transition into something like I described near the east or gulf coast. She has an accounting background and does bookkeeping and payroll for 4 small businesses now. We both also have business degrees, so the behind-the-scenes stuff doesn't scare us much.

Go ahead and setup your own consulting business now. Trade a few hours of your time walking through preschools, churches, and small businesses for lunch or something. The references and years of operation/experience all add up. While you are at Bob's Tire Shop offer to exchange your services for a discount. Bob may know a guy that owns 6 carwashes that OSHA or the local fire marshal just visited.

I do a lot of training as well. Most of the large places, have in house people for it, EHS, SHE, HSE whatever acronym soup is in vogue for safety and health that year. ( DuPont, Honeywell, and a lot are also including the medical side as well. And quite a few I have worked with. Most have in house Audit teams as well. I worked with the in house Audit team with DuPont, and others. Other places like McDonalds, has an in house person but they make < Industry standard. ( according to LinkedIn)

Like Chevron, AWS, Icicle, not to mention construction sites. With someone who also does the onsite medical, the ins and outs of what becomes an OSHA recordable/Vs Reportable. Like Steri Strips vs Sutures which are a recordable. As OSHA considers Steri-Strips first aid. And we are seeing companies like Amphibious Medics, CORE medical. Who provide a tele medicine or on site medical rep. As the workers comp industry is massive in the states. With the occupational medicine segment growing very fast. Some of the Industry’s I have worked with have a Doc on staff, as well as X ray machines. I have used portable ultra sounds in the field/ and “work” environment.

I don’t hurt for work, and have worked hard enough to be picky. There is a market for consulting for sure. In Fact in General, Safety and Health is a large growth area.
My “plan” is after spending the last 5 years freelance I would like to spend 10years maxing out my 401k Again. As well as having insurance. And then “retire” to training and consulting At 44.
But, plans right? I never would have guessed the life I have lived thus far.
