  • Overview - External

    The Consultant Engineer I (CEI) is an entry level position for field engineering.


    The CEI will receive training in all of the various phases of office and field engineering work. All work is typically conducted under close supervision. The CEI will initially spend much time trailing others and being trailed in the field.


    Field work will consist of small, non-complex regular visits, and the engineer typically will not conduct first inspection activity. Technical decision making will be of a very basic nature and will be based upon clearly defined procedures and guidance.

    Responsibilities - External

    1. With appropriate guidance and supervision, conduct basic on site loss prevention evaluations that identify all reasonably forseeable physical and human element exposures for F&EC, B&M and DIC perils.


    1. With appropriate guidance and supervision, accurately quantify exposures at client locations to assure that the Account Team places an appropriate level of attention on the exposure.


    • Quantification should include analysis of the damage to physical property (building, contents) and the impact to the business (BI, TE, Interdependencies).


    1. Assure the operational functionality of protective equipment at low complexity client locations in order to maximize the opportunity for loss mitigation.


    • The CEI should take appropriate steps, in accordance with established policies, to assure that protective equipment, whether sparse or complete, is operational.
    • Confirm that in-house procedures are established to ensure that the protection systems are maintained at all times.


    1. With appropriate guidance and supervision, obtain local client understanding and agreement on the hazards/exposures discovered and their potential business impact.


    • The CEI should aim to move the client along the consulting continuum as far as possible. The initial step is to achieve understanding and then agreement to resolve.
    • The CEI should consult with the highest level of management located at the client site.


    1. Assist with effectively managing change at client locations, with appropriate guidance and supervision.

    Qualifications - External

    Bachelor's degree in Engineering or Applied Science or equivalent.

    0 to 2 years, competencies typically in Basic proficiency range. Examples include:


    Business Interruption - Collects basic data (annual report, annual

    sales and turnover), but has difficulty analyzing the information without



    Flammable Liquids - Identifies the provision of damage limiting

    construction (ex: explosion venting and resistive walls) in equipment or

    rooms, but cannot determine the adequacy of the design.


    Human Element - Has difficulty in determining a location's "real"

    commitment to human element programs. May be too easily influenced by token

    signs of human element programs (ex: organization charts listing emergency

    organization roles, neatly checked off valve inspection checklist forms,



    Boiler & Pressure Vessels - Applies the proper operating standards

    strictly by the book; i.e. may not understand the "why" behind the

    concepts, analyses, and instructions.
