A job that looks easy but requires common sense and lots of water!
Traffic Controller (Current Employee) – Townsville, Qld. – 4 February 2013
A typical day at work is managing traffic for road maintenance work sites, maintaining a safe work environment for yourself, all workers and the public and assisting in the set up and pack up of signage. Referring to the MUTCD Part 3 for every new work site and wearing appropriate PPE. Management looks out for their workers well being. Most of my co-workers are switched on, communicate well and are easy to get along with. From this position I have learned to be alert, use my common sense, wear plenty of sunscreen and drink ridiculous amounts of water. The hardest part of this job is standing on my feet for 8 - 12 hours a day in the blazing sun. The most enjoyable part is talking to people!
