Wind Farm Site
Project Clerk, Herscher, IL - May 21, 2015
This site was fun and stressful at the same time. We had timelines that everything needed to be done and if you were late by a min. it would cause a delay for everyone that needed that info. My co workers became like a family to me. I learned about the safety side of the construction site and that was the best ever. I got to set up the safety celebration every month and the hardest part was the hours. some days were 12 hour days or longer
