The material complements the GHSA State Profiles publication by providing specific information regarding the job duties of the staff positions referenced.
Sample position descriptions were developed by Betty Mercer, Mercer Consulting LLC, based upon position descriptions from several states. Organization and staffing requirements vary widely and are necessarily dictated by the individual state’s budget, law, policy, labor contracts and other agreements. With this in mind, the information has been compiled to be used as a reference by the states and then adapted to their specific need.
Each position description listed is provided in two formats: HTML and Microsoft Word. States can open the HTML version in a web browser and then copy and paste into another program to modify as needed, or download the Microsoft Word version and save to a computer hard drive for further manipulation. A PDF version of the complete document [867 KB, 33 pgs.] is also available for download.
