Interest

I have a genuine interest in safety and have recently received certification as a Construction Safety Officer through BCIT. 

The real world experience I have in the field includes asbestos abatement and nosocomial work under the direction of an industrial hygienist. I also have first-hand experience with confined space work, various types of mobile equipment, and countless hours of work at heights using fall restraint and arrest systems. My long familiarity with electricity, including Lock-Out and Arc Flash training should also be mentioned.
