Safety Equipment Technician , QAQAC (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 3 December 2017
At this workplace each day was different it was never the same routine . I was travelling all over Alberta . I was taking care of all kind of safety devices and equipments , ( distribution , inventory, quality control , calibration , generating Invoices) . The hardest part was to be away from home at all time without fix schedule . once I was away for 3 months without coming home until the end of the project . I enjoyed the people that I worked with .

Best thing I can say is their training program was top notch. Pay at the time was very poor as were the working conditions but you can learn a lot. Best place to train as a safety hand. Get the experience here and get out.

I did enjoyed working part time and some crews were really good and some just so so. Not enough hours to make a living... Worked long hours and days with little time off and management changes safety to keep clients even when it is not safe for us to enter or do work. Will not use all the experience of people to make things easier to do job....people with PHD,masters degrees,process operators have lots of ideas but will not use them...
Not long stints to work on jobs could not stand full time...

good company, maintained friendships. Only negiative with the company is they only have contracted work and it is limited in winter and spring months so it isn't reliable. Non permanent, casual work only. Benefitting students or people who do not have to worry about money or providing.
Safety Watch (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 July 2016
A typical day at work is a 10 hour shift, on your feet in PPE. I learned how to detect for dangerous gases and chemicals which are inherent on the site, which was a fertilizer plant. The hardest part of the job was the long hours and the fact you could work for 10-12 days in a row. The most enjoyable part of the job was being on at the plant at seeing the layout of the plant and the design of the process.
Good group of people, great management that taught me a lot in the short time i was there

Everyday was a new day. You never knew what was to come. You had to figure things out on the fly. I would perform safety meetings, create rescue plans, and train new crew members. Rig in High and low pressure lines at extreme heights. Crews were normally large with few experienced workers. In this Environment one learns to think on the fly very effectively. I would follow the guidelines set out by my management team. The hardest part about my job was trying to balance long shifts and home life (Being I worked away from home). The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting several different people and all the experience I have gained.
