Primary responsibility operating paper roll packaging equipment, as well as quality control, and product shipment. I also have experience and training on various other mill wide skills including: Lock Out/Tag Out implementation and documentation, hazardous energy control including "steam, electric, pneumatic, and physical", Material Safety Data Sheets, Proper PPE for potential risks, monthly OSHA training, pre-task safety checklists, equipment maintenance records, hole/firewatch training, Lauren Hebert Neck/Back/Arm school, and millwright/electrician helper. The common schedule is 12 hour/shifts both during the night and day.
This position consisted primarily of assisting in traffic control for highway work zones. These duties included properly creating a safe highway work zone with proper cone tapers and spacing, warning signs, and flagging according to MDOT SOP.
Extensive training in wildfire control from small lighting strikes where only hand tools are required, to multi-day burns with thousands of feet of hose and pumps, with air support. This job was a summer and fall call in position as needed. It was very physically demanding and mentally challenging.
Received a wide variety of education that greatly benefits in any career beyond the degree title. Electives that I chose in philosophy, computer skills, and public speaking have well proved their worth in life thus far.
This home study course has greatly strengthened by knowledge and faith in my God. I believe the moral benefits alone are a huge addition to any employer.
Safety is key to any business success. Safety has also been a primary goal of my current employer at LP&T. Through their dedication I have had the opportunity to take part in many hours of safety training that will be a great asset to your company. The safety skills that I have acquired, and will reap great rewards at your company are many. The skills that I think will be most important are:
I have training in the control of electric, steam, pneumatic, and physical energy and how to isolate the energy for safe maintenance activities or safety concerns using the Lock out/ Tag Out system, bump tests, and line blocks.
I have experience using many forms of PPE. The common PPE used in my work place are steel toed footwear, cut resistant gloves, safety glasses, and hearing protection. I also have experience in less common situations using PPE such as chemical resistant boots and suits, disposable and canister respirators, hard hats, cut resistant sleeves, goggles, and face shields.
This is a very in depth ergonomics training that goes far beyond methods and teaches exactly how the back, neck, and arms operate, including all the muscles and tendons that are involved. Dr. Hebert has revolutionized the prevention of soft tissue injuries by great percentages. I find this greatly applicable for this position because of a huge reduction in soft tissue injuries in line workers at another Maine electricity provider that uses this program.
