Robert M. Pope, New London, Connecticut resident, started his career in safety inspection after he graduated high school. Having received quality training in mitigating issues in the workplace regarding safety and other concerns, he started as a safety inspector at Millstone Nuclear Power Station in Waterford, Connecticut. His work in this facility helped him gain experience in work sites that deal in energy and engineering related work. Nuclear power is one of the most efficient forms of mass energy production presently. Due to the nature of the fuel type and its capabilities to produce energy and potential safety threats, there is a lot of work that goes into maintaining a safe work environment. If there is one slight oversight on the job, lives could be impacted.
Robert M. Pope knew that working in nuclear safety was a great way to get experience in the field of workplace safety. Successful handling of his responsibilities at Millstone allowed him to look into working in the environment as he oversaw the team that worked to cleanup of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. In 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran into a massive reef in the Prince William Sound in Alaska. The spill caused a loss of about 750,000 barrels of crude oil that affected 11,000 square miles of water and 1,300 miles of coastline. It was the largest oil spill in United States history until 2010, when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Robert M.

His affinity for helping save the environment while keeping crews from harm kept Robert M. Pope, New London in Alaska for the better part of a year as crews worked.

He started his company, ACS Solutions, to work as a consultant and inspector for hire on job sites wherever he was needed. His work took him to various locations on the east coast as well as parts of Canada to oversee various jobs.
Feeling like he had cut his teeth in the environmental work safety field, Robert M. Pope, New London, started his own company. ACS Solutions, which he based from his native Connecticut, works to consult job sites on how to properly regulate worksite safety. Because there are a lot of hazards that go into labor intensive and environmental work, there are a lot of laws and standards that regulate their industries. One such organization that presides over job safety is The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA. They dictate workplace standards in order to maintain the optimal sense of safety possible when on the job. When an incident occurs, OSHA comes in to investigate and rule whether or not the fault was with the employer or employees.
Another part of what Robert M. Pope, New London, and his company did was review other safety procedures and equipment. Fire suppression, medical, and other essential items for the workplace were under his company’s review.
