Health and safety advisor credits TAFE for confidence
LILI Anderson is now looking at a prosperous career providing Workplace Health and Safety advice to industry in Gladstone, after completing her studies at Central Queensland TAFE.
Ms Anderson recently began work as a Health and Safety Advisor for Clyde Babcock Hitachi in Gladstone and is feeling confident in her role, due in no small part to the training she received at CQ TAFE in Mackay.
"At the moment, I'm working on a boiler shutdown at a refinery in Gladstone, which involves looking after the health and safety of around 70 CBH staff," she said.
"Although it's a little daunting, as it's the first time I've done this kind of work and I am responsible for looking after people involved in what can be high-risk work, I feel I am prepared as I could possibly be, thanks to CQ TAFE's training."
Ms Anderson has since completed a Graduate Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety at the QUT.
"After I completed the Certificate IV in OH&S at CQ TAFE, my interest and enthusiasm for working in health and safety only grew," she said.
"The success of my learning at CQ TAFE was really made possible by my teacher, Frank Bogna.
"Having a teacher who obviously enjoys teaching students and is willing to take so much time and effort in ensuring the success of his students, is what guaranteed my success through the course."
