Working with Bendix was an interesting experience. It gave me an opportunity to use my HSE knowledge to implement various programs. One of my task involved revising and implementing a hand-on approach to the new hire safety training. I was able to create what is called a Safety Training Lab - an area designated for training on various topics.This allowed me to utilize, organizational, planning, and communication skills among others. This training area will be eventually placed in all company sites across the US and Mexico.
Also, I enjoyed traveling on behalf of the company, offering assistance to the various sites and carrying out risk assessments in line with OHSAS 18001 requirements.
Other than the HSE related activities, I was involved in a Global Employee Resource Group which was fantastic. A Toastmasters International club was implement while working with the company.
The experience with the company has made me more committed to the HSE profession and look forward to the opportunities of working in a company that give me a chance to grow and improve.
