Trainer / Assessor and Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Gladstone, QLD14 April 2015
I found working for McCosker Contracting very fulfilling and enjoyable.

Daily events included but not limited to:

* Early starts for "pre-start" meeting and work force assessment (random D & A's) positive and enjoyable. Formed a trust bond between workers, supervision and management.

* Work site and safety inspections, incident investigations(rare).

* McCosker Contracting Inductions.

* Operator assessments for Verification of Competency(V.O.C.) including Legislative compliance, general knowledge assessment(theory) and operator skill set(practical).

* Documentation and storing of results for auditing purposes.

* Researching of A.S.Q.A. or other guidelines and Unit Descriptors to comply with various training and assessment procedures.

* Delivery of above training procedures in accordance with guidelines and descriptors in either a class room environment or onsite as per identified procedure( usually both).

* I improved my classroom delivery of training, interaction and management skills, and learned a lot about W.H.S. compliance and implementation. Also improved my computer operating skill set.

* Over all management of McCosker Contracting was very good but pockets of resistance to progress in some divisions of workforce.

* In my capacity of Trainer and Assessor/ Safety Adviser I needed to tread a very "fine line" between a wide variety of workers and management. As such it was difficult to maintain a positive opinion of my value within the company.

* Having a position that allowed me to interact with both the "hands on" workers
  more... and the management meant a lot to me as I came from the "ground" and still enjoy the "feel" of a construction site and seeing something "grow" beyond frustrations and setbacks. I must admit that there were times when I would have preferred to be the "operator" which can be easier and with much less responsibility.  less
