Days blow so fast like a blink of an eye. It’s nearly the end and yet I am not quite ready to say goodbye. The days I spent in WKCDA have truly impact my career choice, my way of thinking and attitude toward life.
As interns, we are assigned with a wide range of various works, from the most boring one to the most challenging one. It cannot be justified which were better than the others, because every single task is an exercise, preparing us for the future life of work. Throughout the process, I’ve came to realize not only the importance of team work, the skill of interpretation, the significance of every role in a project, but also how one should take his/her responsibility with great carefulness.
Take the safety issue as an example. We are always told how vulnerable human life could be and therefore how crucial safety is. But before working in Project Control Department, seldom have I thought of the actual meaning behind it, like how much exactly does safety weight, or the process of ensuring the well-being of everyone involved in the project (especially the workers on site). Sure I’ve had classes in school teaching us about what to do with accident or how to prevent them, but what about real life cases? WKCDA and its contractors make an excellent example regarding raising safety awareness as well as guaranteeing the level of safety. By launching the “Pay For Safety” scheme, WKCDA encourages all the contractors to establish a safe working environment with extra effort. The regular inspection (both weekly and monthly), together with the scoring system for every main-contractors and their sub-contractors on site, secures the safety performance at its best level. The zero accident rate for most of the site in WKCD well proves this. By participating the safety inspection with our Project Manager from time to time, it surely raise my awareness of safety’s significance, especially when it comes to construction site. I’ve learned much more practical knowledge than I ever did in school. “With great power comes greater responsibility”, a major project like WKCD requires more than average effort, and it did well.
