I work extremely well with others as I have taken a proactive approach to safety by helping everyone to achieve a safe work environment. I have a very strong knowledge base of safety regulations in both Alberta and BC. I was able to use this knowledge while developing site inspection forms for drilling, completions, construction, pipeline, transportation, and facilities and cross referencing them to government regulations and IRP’s (industry recommended practises). I am proficient in public speaking and using Power Point presentations which is an asset to holding monthly safety meetings with contractors. By having strong organizational skills, I am able to follow up with all recommendations to create a safe work site. I have effectively enhanced a positive mindset to safety and carried this thinking forward to the job site, resulting in positive actions and desired results.
