Why a career in Safety?

I have a passion for helping people, always have. It makes me feel good to know I can make a difference.

 

Biggest Accomplishment:

My most recent one, I was brought in as the Project Safety Manager for a shutdown at a chemical plant.

 

Biggest disappointment:

That Safety as a whole is not regarded very highly in just about any industry.

 

Other Careers aside from safety:

A few of the typical small things growing up, bus boy...had a few jobs as helpers (millwright, scaffold helper, etc..), it has been Safety for the most part.

 

Mentors:

Many, actually. I believe there is something to be learned from just about anyone. I've learned how to talk to people properly, tactfully, and how to handle different situations better.

 

Advice:

It's not easy, just keep trying, and don't give up if you really want it. Make as many contacts within this field of work as possible.

 

Goals:

My end goal is to find somewhere I can stay permanently. I do not want to travel turnarounds forever. I would like to be a family man someday.

 

Personal Passions:

I like to try new things. Pretty much anything outdoors. I like to Scuba dive, skateboard (on occasion), hit the beach, just about anything really.

 

Safety Passions:

I'd have to say, the Personnel area more than any other. It's amazing how many different things there are that can hurt just one person in a construction environment. I like to be there to help remind people of the things that might be easily overlooked.
