Safety Compliance Field Engineer Supervisor, Milwaukee, WI - 16 March 2018
You wake up at 5am... be at the clients facility by 7am
You hang the procedures and tag the energy sources from the previous day.
You begin fielding equipment for LOTO procedures
When completed, you return to the hotel and begin writing the procedures.
When finished, you would print 2 copies of each procedure, 1 for clients machinery and 1 for the binder.
The procedure for the machinery would be laminated after printing was complete.
You would add the procedures written to the master equipment list and upload the written procedures to rackspace.
You then gather the necessary tags to be installed with the procedures the following day.
When this was completed, you would then log onto your field engineers sites and check their work for errors or defects. If any were found, you would call them or send them an email informing them what you found.
In between doing all of this, there were at least 1 gotomeeting to attend for best practices and software development issues.
I would normally get to bed by 1 or 2 am. Then begin the process all over again.
I learned that no matter how much you dedicate yourself to a company like Brady, you are just a number and your work was never appreciated by your managers..
The hardest part of the job was getting cooperation from the clients staff on large pieces of equipment like boilers. It was common for everyone to disappear when those came up on the list. And getting calls to go fix another field engineers work at another facility was a common issue.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to got to different places and meet and work with different people. This wasn't always good, but for the most part is was the best part of the job.
