I have a passion for construction and the wide range of knowledge I am receiving on commercial sites.
What do you enjoy the most about being an Apprentice? My favourite part about being an apprentice, especially in carpentry, is that two days are never exactly the same. The job has a vast amount of variety and every day brings its own challenges. The apprenticeship allows me to connect with and work alongside a wide range of trades and business people.
I have completed the first, second and almost my third year apprenticeship in first fix and second fix. I have enjoyed learning the skills involved in the carpentry trade. Moving forward, I would like to achieve further experience and I plan to complete some additional training that will enable me to gain further knowledge and experience within the carpentry field.
What is your goal once you have completed your Apprenticeship? Upon completion of my apprenticeship I plan to work for SA Construct and to build a stable future for myself.
Who would you like to thank? I would like to start by thanking Jarrad Morgan of SA Construct for assisting me to maintain my apprenticeship with Master Builders. I would also like to thank Suzanne Moore, my Field Coordinator for assisting and mentoring me through various stages with on and off-site training.
I would also like to thank my family for their continual support and encouragement throughout my apprenticeship.
What does safety mean to you? We work in such a fast-paced and physically demanding industry that consists of a lot of progressing tasks. We all need to ensure we all make it home safely at the end of the day. This requires the highest level of safety and concentration at all times – not only to keep ourselves, but those around us safe. Without the understanding of safety expectations, the industry simply would not function. Safety means all of us working together as a team to ensure that ourselves and our work mates go home each day unharmed. A Take 5 Assessment is conducted daily to ensure a continual identification of hazards and risks are controlled prior to commencement on site.
