Health and Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Fort Saskatchewan, AB – October 10, 2013
Working in the oil and gas industry-safety, can be demanding, high energy work, lots of traveling around the country, job scope changes from site to site, depending on what I was contracted for' safety, medical.and rescue. Some sites I was working alone setting up breathing air trailers, auditing according to clientele needs (near miss incidents, safety advisor, emergency procedures). Most Industrial sites I was working in high risk areas, meaning, using SCOTT packs, Dragers, setting up rescue equipment according to work being done, on site. The hardest part of the job is having to deal with accidents when the accident/ near miss, could have been prevented; ex; rushing to get the job done, complacency, not knowing the equipment, the worker is using, not enough sleep, personal issues, and many more.
meeting new people, traveling to different sites and learning different plants; sag-d, gas, chemical, hydro, coal producing energy plants, chemical plants, pipelines, and oil rigs
long hours, working with people that dont follow onsite safety rules and regulations
