“Put forth the initiative and dedication towards the safety, quality, and production of your work and you will plant a seed that will allow your job to grow into a career,” says Turner Industries Safety Manager Trevor Clardy
While earning an associates degree in occupational safety, Trevor Clardy chose to work at various industrial sites as a scaffold builder in order to begin grasping the knowledge of “plant life.” After reaching his goal of being the first member of his family to graduate with a college degree, Trevor had the opportunity to achieve another of his objectives – getting a job with Turner Industries.
“What I find most satisfying about my career in safety at Turner is that the company as a whole takes care of its employees.”
Trevor works at Shell in Geismer, Louisiana, and when he’s not on the job, he is either in the woods or on the water. Just like his daytime profession, many of his pastimes, like being a certified scuba diver rely on various safety procedures. Trevor loves to go spearfishing off the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.
“Work hard, play hard” are words by which he lives. His attitude towards life is that it is either a daring adventure or nothing.
When the weather gets cooler he relaxes by hunting. Whether he is deep under water, high up in a deer stand or firmly on the ground at the jobsite, safety is Trevor’s number one priority.
How long have you been with Turner Industries?
I was first hired on July 11th, 2013
What makes Turner Industries different from other places you have worked?
I quickly learned that Turner Industries takes pride not only in their quality of work, but also in the safety and wellbeing of their employees. Turner’s mindset is that “We are in the people business and we have to take care of our people.”
