Great bunch of guys to work with. Would work with Downers again.

• a typical day at work would begin by arriving by bus to our dongers. Minimum safety P.P.E on, we sign on and blow in the alcohol testing device. Put our food in the fridge. Sit down relax, chat or prepare ourselves for the shift (Fill water containers etc..) Begin pre-start with 5-10 min stretch out session. Which commonly would be led by a volunteer. Then the Pre-start would then begin with management communicating all relevant information pertaining to the jobs required. Then we would go to our supervisors and be given our specific jobs for the shift. Locking and signing onto a permit box before going to site. We would then prepare our paperwork and tools. After arriving at our specific work area., we then would fill out the required documents before we begin our task. Then we work safely together thru-out each shift. We eat and drink plenty of water. Have rest breaks if needed. Until the end of the shift. Where we make sure we unlock & sign off our permit to work box, before leaving site. • what I learned was safety is everyone's responsibility. • management- I felt that the majority of management was easy to get along with and they knew what they were doing. • I met a lot of good guys that really knew there job. • the hardest part about the job was that the job finished. • the most enjoyable part about the job learning new skills and advancing my Rigging skills.


Decent pay, great guys to work with.


End of job, saying goodbye.
