  1. I was recently employed as HSE Manager in Kitimat BC were I was tasked with designing, structuring, organizing and implementing the entire safety department for RCS International from the ground up, I had nothing but a safety policy to start with. After orchestrating the entire documentation system and structuring all investigation programs and maintenance schedules with a recertification accountability framework in place the department was in a position that I could teach other Safety Officers the requirements to run it seamlessly. As the chief medical officer I also structured an impressive First Aid dept that was more than adequate to service the needs of the 600 potential patients at any given time. I have held an OFA Level 3 ticket for 16 years and have upgraded my medical skills to an Emergency Medical Responder level. I hold an NCSO designation were I specialized in Pipeline Safety. I have a NEBOSH certificate for International General Health and Safety. I hold a diploma in Process Operations. I am currently rewriting my 4th class Power Engineering Government certificate as I missed the passing mark by 3% on my first attempt. I have vest experience as a high angle/confined space rescue technician and have 7 years experience in the fire service were I have been trained up to Captain. I am currently looking to pursue a Safety career in the challenging field of oil and gas but my future is open to explore any role I feel will challenge me. My job on Kitimat was to develop a safety program for RCS International now that hat is complete I am looking for my next challenging role in Health and Safety.
