Challenging week at work.

Posted in Life, Uncategorized with tags , on 31/05/2015 by arthur1977

I am a Project Safety Resource at the widget plant I work for. My primary responsibility is to ensure that  government and company rules and regulations are followed by the contract personnel assigned to my projects.  

More often then not I have no issues with the groups I am overseeing, they are professional and ask questions when they are unsure of the rules and regulations.  This week however it seemed like two out of my three contractor groups decided to not follow the basic rules that are expected in any construction site.  During the week I had to enter two Safety Incident Reports for obvious rule violations and confiscate some slings because they were to damaged to use.  On the plus side no one was hurt and the violations were minor.  I struggle to understand why some people disregard safety rules and then challenge when they are called on them.

Tomorrow is the start of another week.  Let’s see if my groups have learned their lesson from last week or do I need to take a stricter approach with my groups.  I have been told that you don’t make friends being a safety representative and I think I proved that point last week.

Destiny: House of Wolves PvE Impressions

Destiny HoW

I had been taking a bit of a break from Destiny but have jumped back in with the release of the second expansion, the House of Wolves.  My RL friend (32 Titan) and I (28 Warlock) have been two maning most of the new content and really enjoying it.

The Rift is a nice new social area that looks great and I can see myself heading there over the Tower.  The quests have been challenging with the enemies levels ranging between 26-30 but we have been taking our time working through the new environments.  The venture into the Vault of Glass in a quest was fun since I don’t see myself ever attempting the raid.  Some of the bounties I have been having problems taking down the last guy before the time limit runs out and he leaves.  I was doing the Dervis, Wolf Baroness bounty on Earth with 2 other players when the final boss got bored and left when we had him down to 20% health,  grrr.

Overall House of Wolves seems to be a nice little addition to the Destiny universe.  The new quests are challenging but manageable if you are willing to take your time.  I am not a huge PvPer but I hope to try out the  Trials of Osiris this week.  My skill level in first person shooters leaves a lot to be desired so I don’t see me unlocking any of the nice new PvP items anytime soon.

Let me know what you think of House of Wolves by posting a comment.

Time to shake the dust off and get back to blogging!

Wow, its amazing how fast time flies.

Life can get hectic to say the least but I want to try and put a renewed focus on expressing my thoughts and experiences through this blog.  Considering I am a shy individual by nature, blogging is a great way to help me express myself.  I am hoping to expand my blogging topics, moving away for my video game focus that originally sparked my interest in blogging.

I want to thank everyone who read my blog before and hope there is continued interest in what I hope to transform this blog into.
