Groundsman /Heavy Equipment, Walhachin, BC - 20 May 2016
Day starts at 6 am with a toolbox meeting, then out to the truck to preform safety checks, then begins a 12hour day of driving from loading area to waste dump. I have learned more about safety issues and how to risk manage as well as care and maintenance of various crushers and conveyors as well as safe operation of various heavy equipment. Management is very safety conscious and open to suggestions for making the job site a safer place. Co-workers are very diversified and all have their own stories. Hardest part of the job would be the long hours but with that comes the financial reward so some sacrifice has to be made. The diversification and opportunity to learn .
