GOING FOR STRONG AND TOUGH: THE FIRST TIME AS A LABOR SAFETY ENGINEER.
Although the fourth year of the University is just over, with the spirit of inquisitive and eager to train herself, Hanh has had very interesting internship experiences at Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation. Although it is the first time she “set sail”, she has gained many valuable lessons and experiences. It will be useful “luggage” to help her feel more confident and steady in her future work.
In addition to lectures in school, Labor Safety Engineer are also very active in looking for internships outside to both study and practice, between learning the theory in the lecture hall, then the practice is also very important. Therefore, choosing a reputable construction company, a team of a knowledgeable and experienced team to practice, it is even more important. And luckily, when third-year students were accepted by Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation for an internship, a company with more than 15 years of experience in construction, a smooth human resource management system, a team of engineers are always dedicated to their work, complete with procedures, regulations, instructions for each specific job, all the necessary elements to support and help students in the first steps of life..
Through internships at companies, construction sites and projects, students are not only more active, but also have the opportunity to apply their learned knowledge into practice, update new knowledge and practice personal skills. . Although there are still many confusions between the theory and the practical environment, the students have truly immersed themselves in their work to feel more confident and understand their careers.
Practice your ability to handle situations and solve problems
Labor Safety Engineer is a job that always has many unexpected “stories”, so it is not suitable for passive people, who react slowly and do not grasp the situation and handle work in a slow manner. In general, students’ life is quite peaceful to see many bad things, crying and laughing in the real life. And only when going on the internship, the real environment can help the students witness and participate in those thrilling stories. If you do not get acquainted with these “erratic” circumstances, you will surely lose your temper and not solve the root of the problem, because, for the career of a Safety Engineer, neglect distraction for 1 second can cause many consequences, very serious loss. A saying that it will follow throughout the life of Safety Engineer: “Safety first”
Recalling her internship at the Site Board of Management of the Vinatex – Office Building project, Site Safety Board, Hanh happily reported:
“After a period of 2 months at the construction site, I realized that the occupational safety and sanitation at the Vinatex Building project were generally fully implemented according to the company’s procedures and regulations. The project has built a good management system for occupational safety and sanitation strictly and responsibly for each individual. Comply with the provisions of the legal documents issued by the State. The work has well-organized training activities for employees so that they can understand and grasp the work effectively and safely. In addition, employees are equipped and provided with sufficient personal protective equipment. The work of fire prevention, rescue, and first aid is also focused on practicing. Machines are inspected before being put into use, to ensure the requirements of the law. Not only that, the project also measures the working environment, associates with the environmental company to collect solid waste, hazardous waste, monitors the environment periodically, and organizes activities to protect the environment.”
With the wise direction of the Board of Directors of Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation, along with the dedicated help, sharing precious experiences of the Site Safety Board has helped me to become more confident and understand more the work of occupational safety and sanitation as well as having the opportunity to get acquainted with the OSH Management of Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation at the Vinatex Building project.
Gain practical experience in management, training, and propaganda for employees to comply with regulations and requirements at the site to protect their lives, health as well as interests. Know how to manage and check records from human to machine. Understand how to test conventional and rigorous equipment, and how to store and implement compliance with records, processes, regulations, forms according to the ISO 9001: 2015 – 14001: 2015 System and OHSAS 18001: 2007. Implement and issue safety training card and equip workers with sustainable industrial development. In addition, there is more understanding about the psychology and needs of the employees, from which we can consider and propose measures to improve occupational safety and health factor to ensure the best safety for labor.
Not only that, but I can also learn from the brothers and sisters in the project about their style, assessment style, recognition of things and working attitude, how to handle, and solve all situations. All of them have been working actively to avoid unfortunate accidents, to ensure the safety and interests of employees, contribute to improving the quality of labor to ensure the correct construction schedule, but still ensure safety. Being able to study and work at Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation is a great honor for myself – a student with many shortcomings. With a dynamic working environment and enthusiasm and always willing to help from the leaders, I feel friendlier when getting into an environment completely different from the schools. Since then, I feel more motivated and constantly improve to learn more knowledge and experience about the career.
In addition, the Company also has a support policy for students to practice, to motivate their spirit of learning and improve their work responsibilities. After finishing my internship, I hope to continue to have more opportunities to stay and work on the project with a new position. If wearing a uniform with the company logo will be the proudest thing for a new student like me. I myself will have to strive, make more effort, be responsible, and work more disciplined to respond the trust and help from the Board of Directors. I would like to express my deepest thanks to the Board of Directors of the Company, the Safety Board, the Site Management Board.
Thanks to the approval of the Board of Directors of the company, I and my friends have a successful internship. With extensive knowledge and long-term work experience in the profession, the Board has taken very reasonable steps to support students during their internship at the project, so that they can complete their job well assign, support me to collect data in the field for me to apply in the report and it is a bloody experience to help me devote more and more to my career.
With clear policies, procedures, regulations, years of experience management, and the talented management of the Board of Directors, Phuoc Thanh Construction Corporation has been stable for over 15 years at the marketplace full of harshness. Looking at the process of formation and development of the Company, it is enough to see that the brains of the company are talented, enthusiastic, and live hard people for the job and for the Company.
It will be forever happy memories, beautiful memories connecting friends together, and colleagues in the future. With the desire to pursue a career as a Labor Safety Engineer, the students did not hesitate to move forward, no success came by themselves, so go on your own to earn your own success. The path is short or long, some are far and near, but there is no peaceful road to reach glory. Only the efforts, diligence, hard, trying to learn, and comply, the way to success is closer and closer. Trying then soon be successful.
