Actively participate in Project/Site Safety Programs.
As a Field Piping Technical Specialist you must actively engage in current project/site safety programs. The most pervasive of these are Tool Box meetings. These are team safety meetings held daily, usually before work starts in the morning, that update the construction and field engineering team on the current progress status of safety on the project as it reflects on safety incidents, how many near misses, and how accomplishing project schedule milestones creates safety pinch points and strains to watch out for. This is where you will hear emphasis placed on site safety initiatives like the requirement of buddy systems for jobs to be done in a work permit environment. It is the accredited milestones achieved safety, with out injuries that is the number one value for today's project clients, owners and all the workers on the construction site.
