EHS Recruiters is a most unique and specialized recruiting service to help organizations quickly attract and retain environmental, health and safety (EHS) specialists at all levels: managers, engineers, chemists, hydrogeologists, technicians and those with degrees in environmental sciences or other technical disciplines. EHS Recruiters is a service of the non-profit Foundations for Health Education.

Building trust with our client and candidate relationships is based on mutual honesty, integrity and confidentiality.  We are in the people business: connecting good people to good companies.

The strength of EHS Recruiters and our associates includes the 40 years of EHS experience of our co-founder David M. Augenstein, MSc, PEng (ret). He has worked within major corporations, consultants and regulatory agencies. As CEO of Automotive Environmental & Safety Engineering (AESE), his publishing and education enterprise, his major customers have included all GM dealers (all divisions), all Toyota and Lexus dealers, trucking companies, and military bases. He has direct experience in areas in air and water pollution, hazardous and solid wastes, and soils; from laboratories, regulatory compliance, site cleanup, and EHS training and education for hundreds of EHS managers. Fifteen years of this has been in fleet and vehicle maintenance operations.  Learn more about David.


What We Do For Both Clients and Candidates
Client companies and candidates benefit from the scope and breadth of knowledge of the EHS associates and their contacts and relationships within the industry. Our assets include private cloud-based software applications and databases and our unique backroom console we call iNet. These assets become your assets when you engage with us.

(Within fleet and vehicle maintenance operations, the new EHS person and the boss have access to extensive online training and education materials and an EHS Audit System to use as they wish. See the demo at )

Types of Personnel (Tap)

Most EHS job openings are not advertised on internet job boards. We offer opportunities from our currently active base of companies and candidates and those resulting from our search, matching your specific requirements.

What We Do Special for Client Companies

The hiring process is time-consuming and costly and can be devastating if a wrong decision is made, forcing the undertaking to start all over again.
Often the hiring person and HR manager have little time, resources, or limited knowledge of the type of person needed. Some job openings must be confidential and not generally made known inside the company or to the general public. This rules out advertisements. This is another reason to use a third-party, private search firm who can make discrete inquiries.

Ideally, we will provide three qualified, screened candidates ready to move from their current position into your organization.  Our fee is a percentage of the annual income and is not billed until the candidate is hired, half when hired and a half after a 90-day probation period. Our goal is to work well enough for our clients that they’ll continue to come to us with additional assignments.

We will not flood you with resumes of people who do not meet your requirements. Our candidates will be of such quality you will want to pick up the phone and then arrange an interview. Contact David Augenstein or Ann Janovyak at 330-875-1208 or 

What We Do Special for the Job Seeker

EHS specialists who want to change jobs and advance their careers benefit in many ways by working with EHS Recruiters.  If you are accepted into our program you will never pay for our services. Our client companies pay us to find candidates that meet their specifications. Our ideal candidate will hold a B.S. degree in an EHS-related field such as engineering or environmental science and have about five years experience. They also may hold a license or certification such as P.E., CSP or CHMM. After we speak, if there is mutual interest in pursuing the opportunities presented, you will need to provide appropriate references so we can introduce you to the companies. Then you will be able to talk directly to the company manager and arrange a live interview.

EHS Recruiters work for you during the business day while you continue to work at your present job without risk of being unmasked.  We can provide insight into the company and job responsibilities. We can help negotiate a higher salary and provide you with information ahead of the initial phone interview so you will be better prepared.  Our goal is to work so well with you that you’ll refer others to us, and perhaps call on us again when you’re ready to further advance your career.
