I have seen the industries change drastically as baby boomers retire. There are not enough experience younger people to fill the positions. supervisors are selected that have very little to no experience in the work that is being done. all they know is work safe and get it done quick. I have seen this in the oil/gas industry. It scares the crap out of me knowing how bad things have gotten in the management. Thankfully there are still a lot of skill workers left who perform the actual tasks. that's changing too though.

See my edit Woody. It now reads: "1 year hands on experience in a trade such as plumber, electrician, carpenter so you understand how workers feel about some of the OSHA requirements

1 yr exp in a trade and you barely know how to wipe your own nose. Not enough experience to be a supervisor. When I was young I thought I knew it all. Now that I am older I know that young people don't know what they don't know, and that makes them poor supervisors.

We used to call the young guys that had about a years experience and now was able to sweat a joint properly "one year wonders"

The young Dudes really thought and would say "I'm a plumber"
we would laugh and tell them no, you have SO MUCH more to learn, you have no idea.......

They knew enough to be dangerous..

I would say that it rakes at least five years before someone has a bit of a grasp on being professional...




Since I've given up all hope, I feel much better

That is exactly the scenario in power generation where I work. Management makes less than the skilled workers so no one wants to take the management jobs.

Its a good job for the right person. I spoke to them back when but it didnt fit my needs. Never hurts to talk to someone you never know where it’ll lead.

Safety professionals are in high demand right now. We sent one of our employees through all the required training to get his certs for a project at the airport. He will remain our full time safety officer for future projects as we move forward. His cost to company will ideally offset any future costs from potential injuries. Well worth the investment for company and families. One back injury cost us hundreds of thousands and lost opportunities for jobs for 3+ years. Not worth it. And we're a small business glazing contractor. Typically larger GC's are the ones who retain such professionals. I tell many people who want a change of direction to think about this position. But with it does comes the responsibility of being charge of keeping the company and it's projects/employees safe and that for some is too much to bear.

Another case of clueless old fa*ts not understanding the modern computer driven workplace. Decision making, ojt and knowledge are no longer a prerequisite. We now have Google right on our phones. JFGI

Its hilarious how weebray (is that the sound more than two asses make?) thinks google can solve problems related to construction safety with a phone. You can have the best accident prevention program known to mankind, the most qualified and experienced workers and STILL have injuries or worse. It’s human nature to be careless and think it won’t happen to me. RIO, I just passed my EM385 refresher, again!

Does weebray ever have anything constructive to add here? Not that I’ve seen.

in my industry, gas, oil, transportation pipeline. most of the people who really knew how to do the work retired. I wound up as a general supervisor after years of in field experience. Now the same job goes to a kid maybe 20 something who has no clue what the actually work is. It's a very dangerous job at times when chit goes wrong and things leak. knowing how to properly handle the situation is a learned thing. not an off the cuff look it up on my I phone. if you actually had an I phone on the site you would most likely be incinerated as it would ignite the gas. it's a scary change I would not want to be involved in today. I know too much about things that go on in this industry. these pipes are old like me most are even older some put in in the 1800s and a lot of steel put in in the 50s it is past it's expected lifetime and ready to fail. good luck to all these wanna be bosses when the crap hits the fan.
