Let's all agree that no one or no department is perfect.
(S)elected position are little more than a popularity contest and should be done away with. But until compentency based testing comes to every department that is not going to change.
It would appear that based upon NFPA 1521 you are not qualified for the position of safety officer or NFPA 1021 qualifications for fire officer.
However it also appears that you are trying to do the best that you can given the situation.
I would agree with most of the previous posts. Find out the expectations of your chief. I would also reference NFPA 1500, 1521, and 1021 for starters.
The choice is yours, but get trained to job properly.
By the way I am a state certified Fire Department Safety Officer, however my department does not agree, instead we go without one.
Whatever, that is an administrative and command desicion.
