Patriotic, rewarding and stimulating career.
Pros: the freedom to enteract with employees, hear their concerns or safety issues and being able to resolve them.
Cons: it is difficult to get benefical traing that pertains to the profession, other than education. we do not have the opportunity to participate in work related conferences, training, interact with other perfessional, experts.
My work day includes:
Traveling to different airfields to conduct training of safety procedures and ensuring that all maintenance work is in compliance with the Department of Defense, Department of the Army, NFPA, EPA and OSHA/CFR guidelines. Conduct investigations of accidents pertaining to on-the-job injuries or damage to government and company owned property. Generate reporting for AGAR, AAAR and companies requirements for documentation. Recommend corrective actions and preventive methods as appropriate for each aviation accident incident or injuries .
By managing over 500 employees and 20+ supervisors daily, I have learned the importance of being flexibility and understanding all while balancing the policies and requirements of the company.
