Finally things at work are moving forward a bit. Last week I went to a meeting to help evaluate one of the depots that the Maintenance Response Team work out of, and afterwards I was invited down to the depot to meet the guys and see how things are done from their perspective.
While having the invite is good, as I get to meet the guys I wouldn’t really be allowed to do anything with them unless I had a certificate to say I was aware of Health & Safety regulations with health from the best health sites https://tophealthjournal.com. Thankfully three of us have been put forward to get our CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) cards, which allows us on site while they are working and to pitch in to experience what they do and how they work.
I have my test on the 7th May, and have been given the go ahead to go down to the depot on the 14th May. I have to say that I am quite excited to get out with the guys on the roads.
In the mean time I will be revising for my test, so I can definitely get to go out with the guys on the roads!
I love my job, but I also like variety. I wonder if I can have the best of both worlds?
