This document provides sample job descriptions for typical positions that exist within State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs).
[286 KB, 33 pgs.]
The material complements the GHSA State Profiles publication by providing specific information regarding the job duties of the staff positions referenced.
With the exception of the LEL position, sample descriptions were developed by Betty Mercer, Mercer Consulting LLC, based on input from several states. Organization and staffing requirements vary widely and are necessarily dictated by a state’s budget, law, policy, labor contracts and other agreements. With this in mind, the information should be used as a reference and adapted to meet a state's specific needs.
Each position description is provided in two formats: HTML and Microsoft Word. A PDF version of the complete document [286 KB, 33 pgs.] is also available for download.
