Gordon’s Blog – First Aid Training

If you work at any industrial site, you will come across some first aid training. It is not required for all employees, but it’s good to take. It’s like an insurance policy you hope you never have to use.  I have been involved with emergency response for many years, so I have had a lot […]

Tamara’s Blog – Working & Goals

Growing up, I can honestly say that I had no idea what it was I wanted for my life or a career or even a job. Heck, I don’t even think I ever really thought about it at all. I started working at a very young age. At the age of eleven or twelve, a […]
