@orgazm89 tricky … @orgazm89 tricky maths involved , but practice helps
oh boy you would … oh boy you would not be allowed to work like these guys at the Tarsands , there p.p.e,s are mandatory safety before everything else sometimes i find these p.p.e cumbersome in the summer heat and believe me it can hot in northern Alberta in june july and august but these jobs pay so mucht first thing is avoiding any accident causing injury damage or even just a spill one must even have a certificate now if climbing higher than 2 metres on a ladder its called fall arrest training no kidding
in reply to … in reply to Starwars518 well at the Tarsands on a typical camp job one can put away in the bank say on a 3 or 4 or 5 month job more than most people could put away working in the city for 2 or more years in the city you just have a huge pile of expenses i have only worked at camp jobs now in the last 5 years i probably will not even consider taking a job in the city
is the math … is the math involved with being an electrician easy or hard
im choosing between … im choosing between to be an electrican or a bricklayer. which would use advise me to do ?
I have worked all … I have worked all year round for the last 15 years I took my required coffee breaks and didnt do a ratty thing and made more for doing a better job then u rat bastards
All of you union … All of you union guys just and moan too much. Maybe if you did not take so many coffee breaks you would have more work. Call me a rat or whatever, I WORK ALL YEAR ROUND.
this comment just … this comment just doesn't make any sense.
do you mean you noticed 20 examples of OHSA violations in this particular clip? And this somehow a representation of non-union work practice?
i just saw 20 … i just saw 20 violations on safety rat electricians just don't get it.
that is just silly … that is just silly (and ignorant). Markets drive and determine industry costs, not the union.
are you industrial … are you industrial or contruction and maintenance?
im a second year … im a second year now tho as of feb.
serious man, ive … serious man, ive worked for 3 companies the first i was making 10, then i got a raise to 12, then i moved to another company that did commercial work, i completed a no frills store here in ontario, then i got on with a contractor who friends with my dad (my dad is an electrical safety authority inspector, ESA) who does residential and industrial and now im making $16.50 an hour (its actually 15.50) but i get a dollar an hour more for vacation pay, i have no reason to lie brother
bull shit bull shit
every tool that is … every tool that is carried in that tool pouch is needed, you can make as much money as you're worth, depending on how much responsability you want to take and how much ability to run work and lead people you have.
guard against … guard against sparks, good vision etc.
in reply to … in reply to Mistermanguy yes i suppose one may get shocked doing electrical work in my case mucht more so working at home or when i was young tinkering with electrical gadgets now when i work at the big Tarsand projects it is rare someone would get shocked that would be considered a incident not that everybody reports it if one follows all the mandatory procedures on these jobs it becomes nearly imposible to get a shock doing electrical work and you do not want to be hit with 600volt or4160V
@cjw1169 What … @cjw1169 What takes you a year to make we make that in 6 months.
Yep. I was doing if … Yep. I was doing if for about two months before I got shocked. Was’nt a hard hit though. It didnt grab ahold of me. Once you get hit you will loosen up about it and feel more comfortable around it and trust me..its gonna happen. You can reduce the chance of getting hit with a good pair of insulated gloves though.
Amen buckslyr…… … Amen buckslyr……I have been in the IBEW for 22 years and other than 1 stint during the first Bush years I have worked steady for the last 16 years without missing a break or lunch and the contractor I work for has prospered as have I. Couldn’t even imagine working without my wage and benefit package and having to do every wormy thing to keep my job, Thank god for unions and those who fought for it in the early years. Some just don’t get it!!!!
I’ve been to … I’ve been to college and got on the Electrical Course and Plumbing gota choose between em now..
Judgin by the comments this trade is good, But this course says u do one year full time (level 2 certificate) Then Level 3 part time wid apprenticeship one year then ur an qualified electrian ?!?! Wat am i missing here
I see people on here say apprenticeship last 4 years..
Also Electricians Out there is it Fact that u will be shocked at one point during work?
Reply back if know
I would be more … I would be more concerned about the kid on the ladder, wearing trainers & not tied off.
the less money … the less money union electricians make the less rat electricians make so i hope union electricians make minimum wage so all the rats just die.
wel i started off … wel i started off in residential, then i moved to commercial, the company im currently with now does residential and industrial. Industrial work is my favorite, we just did work at a wood plant here in northern ontario, we wired 12 kilnes and a boiler room all new at this place and an endless amount of 3 phase 600 volt pumps lol. lot of PLC in this place too, and motor controlls, but i didnt do too much of that, but i did get to wire a transformer up, lots of experience there!
