Very eduicational experience
HSE Manager, Safety officer (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 1 February 2014
The Fort McMurray working culture is very demanding especially in the seasonal road building construction business. Work days are long and consumed most of ones time from April - October with the winter months catching up on paper work.
Although the pace of working for this company was extreme I was able to gain a great deal of knowledge and understanding of how the road construction industry works.
Direction given to me by the owner and the construction manager, their willingness to teach me all the aspects of the business was greatly appreciated.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work independently with minimal supervision. Every day brought new challenges, making the day to day decisions for the safety department on a regular basis was rewarding as the knowledge gained thru the years was now being put to the test.
