Unsafe acts blasts from the past

I could not believe I’m back here again, but more safe and more hi-tech. Its stressful organizing hands-on training, no this is not my first time, but my second. The last one was in 2010, still working at the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) where I  was fortunate enough to manage capacity building projects on energy  and climate change  from the Philippine Council for Industry and Emerging Energy Research of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCIEERD) which was Methane to Markets (M2M) back then and  of course with the Department of Energy (DOE) whom I now partner with the Cool Contributions fighting Climate Change project.

What was the difference? Basically, health and safety and we’re more serious about it. I have so many frustrations working for BV not really using my training on occupational health and safety, but I was so fortunate that I can finally use whatever training I have had on safety and health on fighting climate change. Sometimes, things are just a perfect fit, though it can be a bit stressful…when its only you who know and not much contribution from others, not really getting their hands dirty. The video above was so dirty working on an anaerobic biodigester in a microscale pig-farm and so rowdy and noisy. May be good for learning but not really the best conditions for a technical hands-on training.

Below is my recent assignment for GIZ, but the focus was on hydrocarbon air conditioners.  I have no idea why we had a very rowdy crowd up there, because I was young and rowdy myself, not really taking safety seriously…
