RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
"A lot of senior or client safety guys were in other trades before going into safety because they wanted an easy job that isn't labour intensive, since they already know their way around a job site, such as a refinery, the transition into safety is easy. Safety isn't a "skilled trade", I don't know how to classify it, all I know is that those guys are the most hated people on site and I avoid them like the plague!"

but how much does it pay considering that it isn't a labour intensive "skilled trade" job compared to a traditional one? i.e. can they make big $ ?
btw where are you planning your next vacation Scotian? am going to visit nova scotia in a week, any spots you recommend ? beaches? scenery? etc.
