Had a day of throwing my tapes into the water today, Berth 5 Valdez terminal. Erecting a little 4'X30' platform suspended under the sump. Safway tube and clamp. Simple should have gone quickly but.....
No worries it will be there in the morning.
For what it is worth wages in Alaska are down, about $500 a week less than last year for me a bigger cut for others. Two years ago 7, 12hour days 10 weeks on two weeks off were common. Now 6 10 hrdays with 6 weeks on 2 weeks off. Laborers are at $24.49 now, full scale is $32.00 There are no carpenters working on the Trans Alaska Pipeline.
Good luck to all and keep your tapes dry!
Justin, I work for Patent in Georgia. We have no work down here in the south and I am needing to work. I will travel anywhere. If you know of anything please let me know. I am a Journeyman and also a foreman/leadman. Just wondering if you could help me out.
Thank you, Justin. I am currently working off and on for the KC branch. I am only filling in where they need me, so work has not been that consistent lately. I was just researching scaffold builders to see if there were any outages that were about to start that I could travel to. If you hear of any nuclear or power plants that are in need of help, please let me know at your convenience. I have worked at various power plants including Sibley and Iatan, and I have been doing scaffolding for 2 1/2 years. I can pass a drug/alcohol test, a background check, I have no criminal record, and a good driving record as well.

Here are a couple of links for our Occupational Health and Safety legislation, if you are interested in comparing what you have in the States. I expect that it is much the same. I will try to find the link for free access to the Canadian Standard Association Z97-09, as well. It is new and I am not as familiar with it as its predessesor, CAN/CSA-269.2 M87. http://employment.alberta.ca/documents/WHS/WHS-LEG_ohsc_2009.pdf http://employment.alberta.ca/SFW/3969.html
If there is a way to attach files to the site let me know and I'll see what I can dig up. I have a fairly decent library of manufacturer's specifications.
