DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS


Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector I - This is the entry-level class in the Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector series. Positions in this class typically have little or no directly related work experience and work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks. The Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector I class is distinguished from the II level by the performance of less than the full range of duties assigned to the II level. Incumbents work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks, progressing to general supervision as procedures and processes of assigned area of responsibility are learned.


Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector II – This is the journey level class in the Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector series and is distinguished from the I level by the ability to perform the full range of duties assigned with only occasional instruction or assistance as unusual or unique situations arise. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the I level.


This class is distinguished from that of the Senior Fire and Environmental Safety Inspector in that the latter is an advanced journey level class responsible for providing administrative oversight, and exercises direct supervision over assigned staff.
