Mechanical Trades Supervisor (Former Employee) – New Waterford, NS – 15 April 2013
Safety meetings, reviews, tailboard discussions and risk assessments daily. Everything documented to the n th. degree. Think, work and live safely, comes before production.The Loss Control Program and team targets driven by management have become the status quo. We broke many records ! The workers were excellent and rose to the challenge and took on this safety culture. They are very well trained. The hardest obstacle at NSP was getting the required work done without enough spare parts, without enough manpower and sometimes not enough time to complete the job. My co-workers and customers were the best part of the job. Keeping them satisfied was the real joy at NS Power.
great workers, happy customers.keep those turbines spinning. rewards.
long hours, to much paper work (redtape), constant documentation. work overload.
