What is the salary like at Seaspan ULC?

Pros

-Good pay, good benefits -Access to certifications/designations

Cons

Before I began working as a Safety Advisor, I received a 4-day Confined Space Rescue course and a 2-day NFPA Shipyard Competent Person course. This, along with an advanced first aid ticket, is enough to qualify you to oversee the safety of over 150 trade workers on any given vessel. You need to be familiar with every trade environment, which is only developed during heat-of-the-moment exposure We are thrown onto the floor without any formal training on how general docking dangers, face mask requirements, fire evacuations, rigging/crane dangers work. They pair you up with a more "experienced" coworker (experience can range from 6 months to 10 years) and they are expected to teach you everything about the job. It is an incredibly diverse role to occupy, and the training should not be conducted casually by other coworkers. Trade workers depend on us to watch out for them, and they deserve better than the sluggish attempt at oversight that our department provides them. In Victoria, the department has a boy's club mentality. Any attempt at going against the grain to try to improve conditions will likely be met with a campaign aimed at reducing your hours and/or an attempt to have you removed.

Advice to Management

This isn't a hard problem to solve, please just get a proper training program together: -Mandate/enforce checklist training. The existing checklist is underdeveloped and no one bothers to confirm you have completed it. It isn't even used most of the time -Test new staff with a written/practical exam before turning them loose on their own -Host a training day once every 2 months to build competency/team cohesiveness. We do a ERT sessions once per year during the course with no further practice, its a disaster waiting to happen. You use discipline every time you want the department to improve, but you never implement new training or build more efficient procedure. If you don't know how to do your jobs, at least try to emulate people who do
