Each typical day I fulfilled the tasks given to me by my foreman.
In my previous job I learned safety starts with me and you. It never used to report minor accidents and incidents at work until when we were told the benefits of being open in disclosing them to our supervisor or safety. I started participating actively on tool box meeting and analyzing risks to every task we were given and reporting every simple incident to the safety personnel for investigations, which in turn improved our work safe practices.
I learned that good management in following company processes and practices cuts down wastage of time and money. For example it never made sense to me in moving from office to office getting alloy slips for welding to be approved by QC's, I came to see some welds being cut due to wrong alloy used which costed a lot time to be redone.
My co-workers were friendly, each time we hard a new worker he or she was being assigned with a mentor for the first four weeks in order to familiarize with the surrounding work area, evaluated from time to time to see if they are following the safety practices of the company and their competence at work.
The hardest part of the job it was when the job was underground, we used to get stuck on mud and the more you try to remove one leg from the mud you insert pressure on the other until you get some help.
The most enjoyable part of the job was that everybody was ready to help which made me get to be more confident person.
