Amazing company to work with. Fast Paced, and Growing!
Project Manager, Chief, Inspection (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – May 14, 2019
Awesome Company doing difficult work, without destroying the environment. Fair to the public, and workers. Growing pains as the company grows, seems to be the achilles heel, if there is one. Though I was unfamiliar with day to day pipeline construction, I was aware of Pipeline Safety, for First Responders by attending yearly classes Hosted by Plains All American Pipeline all over the US. The Company is on the cutting edge of the technology, and realizes cutting edge is a constant change.
Due to the nature of the job, Everyone hates the Safety Man! I quickly saw that the Normal approach to Job Safety is not effective. Hard nose, "I'm going to Fire YOU!" seems to work till Safety is out of site. Education of the workers in Why Safety is needed, and understanding expectations was a Joy! In a mere few weeks "Crews" become "Family." It is second nature to look after Family. The job I did, turned into being one of my most rewarding.
Was a temporary job to facilitate completion of that Project.
