Biggest task not fully understood

Nobody really understood what I was doing from July to December 2015. I just got back from my maternity leave not really wanting to do management system audits. I was extremely frustrated, nothing is happening, but since January 2015, I have been reviewing documents, procedures, guidelines, contractual requirements on the health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) for the fabrication of seventeen (17) modules for delivery to the Yamal LNG project. I was also locally managing a contractual arrangement with BV Russia.

Today,  the Paris Agreements which calls for global climate action is set into force. Does anyone among the people I truly love understand what this is all about? Even the President of the Philippines does not even understand the context of the Paris Agreements and he has to rely on his advisers on how to …

Mt. Apo Calling

The time stamp on this photo is 3:47 am.  I think this is somewhere in Makilala, North Cotabato in 2012. I wanted to master night photography, but I need a stronger lens to do so. I haven't maximized the use of my Olympus EPL-2, do plan to buy a Panasonic 20mm pancake lens, five years …

OH my S! No turning back, I guess.

On April 21, 2015, I wrote a post about going into Health & Safety as part of my work responsibility and finding my level of expertise too shallow. Good industry experience is essential to gain expertise, but the lack of professional direction,  mentorship, technical supervision and even the lack of audit assignments on OH&S was …
