Atypical work day brought new challenges and exciting encounters in the work environment all which was made easier with good relations among workers and with management . The team comprised people from different cultures and races but we all worked together as equals. Safety regulations were upheld to the highest level

A typical day at work is based on Schedule Milestones and checking priorities before attending to my incoming and outgoing responsibilities towards stakeholders. What I have learned is that document management is not based on first in / first out methodology like I have originally adhered to but rather working according to a critical path and scheduled milestones. Our workplace culture is very much family orientated - we do work long hours when required but our company focuses on involving our family on fun days or team building events. The hardest part of the job for me is to decline submissions from stakeholders when it doe not comply to ISO standards as set out in our management plans and procedures whilst I am aware it is a document on a critical path. I love document management - I love working with people and reporting on great teamwork to get a project delivered and closed-out successfully!

The company was very productive and I've learn a lot in that company. I am a hard working man who want to learn more and also like a challenging job learn new things everyday because I catch up easily. Working long hours and overtime was my duty because I always plan my work in time because I committee myself when it comes to my work.

It is joyful to have a safe productive day at work. To learn new technology and experience new efficient designs on equipment. It is always a pleasure to have the support of management for assistance. Team work and skill transferring is a must. The hardest part to achieve your goals is to have spare parts and the correct equipment on site. The most enjoyable part is to achieve your goals on or before target dates within the budget range.
