Consol Energy - Wind Ridge PA As a section Foreman, my responsibilities included the daily tasks of lining my crew up for the tasks of mining coal safely, starting with a daily safety brief, going over special instruction for the shift, recognizing uncharacteristic hazards we normally may not encounter and introducing new methods, ideas, members, or regulations as things within the industry or workplace changed.
As the day progressed my duties also included review of safety policies being followed, job duties, making my examinations for safety and compliance, and ensuring the work itself was being completed in a safe and efficient manner.
Our core values were safety, compliance, continuous improvement, production and cost.
As a supervisor, it was my responsibility to ensure these were met by every member of my team in all aspect of the job every single day and if not, then it was my responsibility to correct what needed corrected to bring us back to the core values.
For 5 years this was a successfully accomplished without any injuries on my crews.
Record keeping was also a key in my role as we documented many different items within our daily duties for both the company and the state as required by both policy and by law.
Our Work area varied in size since we could be given a different location to work in every day.
we had to have flexibility to move about, work with a wide range of equipment, and with a range of people both highly experienced and inexperienced.
My responsibilities required that I match the inexperienced up with those who had the necessary knowledge to make sure they were trained and properly prepared to handle the job at hand safely and efficiently.
Our team was alone for the most part several miles from the surface and possible help so we had to learn to trust one another in everything, so for this reason we learned to talk to one another, trust one another, and to communicate about life in every aspect.
For me, knowing my men outside of work as well as at work, their duties underground allows me to know when there is something wrong and help prevent problems or accident.

Heavy Equipment OperatorKinder Morgan Arrow Terminals LLC － PA
At Kinder Morgan, I was considered a general laborer with quite a few different jobs, however, the primary and most common was equipment operator.
Kinder Morgan was a warehousing facility for metal alloys.
This company handed various types of alloys where we as laborers were still involved in quality and quantity control as well as the reporting of materials used.
As a warehouse facility we conducted inventory, however we were also involved in processing and packaging these materials since the materials often required a different type of packaging than the original per the customer's specifications.
As the years progressed there, this became the most focused and most common job for me.
Our normal day always started with safety talks and job lineup since our jobs were almost always typical for us but widely varied and many times required specialty rigging or ideas to complete.
Our job was often detail oriented and required attention to safety and teamwork.
Paperwork was another key area as we had to track so many different customers inventory in a vast area.
Our territory of operation was 3 lots spread out over nearly 3 miles between 2 towns and the lot had a warehouse that alone was nearly 15 acres under roof.
our inventory was huge and mostly government own so control and quality measures were strictly enforced.
My success at this company prepared me for my future roles and helped me recognize that I could progress to a higher leadership role.
For that reason, I chose to change jobs and more forward and upward which I successfully accomplished in 2011.
