Safety and well being driven
EHS Manager Audits and Risk Assessments (Former Employee) –  Perth WA11 February 2015
* Routine pre-start Safety meetings and work place hazard hunt for a couple of minutes by workforce in their operational area. Collect data and analyse major high risk hazards to be closed out.
Almost daily inductions on contractors visiting sites!..assist Supervisors with day to day safety related queries.
* Have learned to listen to the employee on the floor at the coal face to determine the reality and give attention to their concerns identified.
* Promote solid relationships between Management and key stakeholders where the needs of all are respected.
* Always support co workers ideas and productive inputs with great respect.
* The hardest part of any safety job is where production and financial restraints interfere with safety objectives and targets.
* Everything about Safety is enjoyable!! especially to be able to be a role player in a team environment for the safety and well being of your employees.
Pros
Job Satisfaction
Cons
Negative Management with Ego problems.

Technical Support Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  perth wa Australia3 November 2013
The typical day at work was when we had a broken track frame for the Drill Rig in a Blasting Area. The job was to take two to three days to replace the track frame due to environment in the Pit. We managed to remove the rig from the blast area although the blast delayed for 2 hours.
As a supervisor I learnt some thing like in such situation never panic get the co-workers on the table discuss how you are going to do the job , let every one contribute and the make a final decision.
The hardest part of the job was when we had to wait for the new frame , it took 2 weeks to arrive to the mine site and the guys from the mining section were on us because they wanted the machine for production.
The most enjoyable was when we managed to remove the Drill from the blasting zone safely and mining continued .
Pros
Free meals
Cons
Long working hours

Large Global company with secure job structures and flexible time.
EHS Manager Audits and Risk Assessments (Current Employee) –  Perth Western Australia 24 May 2013
Responsible for the ISO certification of the company via the scheduling of auditors to conduct pre audits on all mines and constructions sites in region APC. Assisting all other EHS Managers in developing procedures and Risk Assessments on Machines and Equipment.
Also a Global Lead Auditor, traveling the globe to conduct audits on some of the 142 countries...

Have done some good courses in EHS, QA and Environmental systems auditing. Completing a pre graduate Risk Management Diploma for Mining Professionals with the University of Queensland.

Have been working without a Regional EHS Manager for about two years, so not much about Management..

Working with a fantastic EHS Team and colleagues! Always available and helpful 24/7

There is basically no hard part of this job, just need to stay on top of all legislation changes.

The most enjoyable would be the opportunity to see other countries and the ability to work flexible time..

Pros
Car allowance
Cons
Annual salary adjustments
