Today is Friday, also known as the best day of the week! It’s also a beautiful day in Philly for the first day of summer, which makes the work-day pass by quickly. At work, I’m currently updating the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for the chemicals in the entire treatment plant.
It’s crazy to see how many chemicals there are to be considered, and what to do if an accident occurs. Doing this helps me gain more perspective on the duties of a plant manager. They really have to think and anticipate every situation and they must be familiar with every aspect of their company, in addition to working closely with the employees. I think it’s really valuable to pay close attention to these details while I’m interning, because some of this can not be taught in a classroom, rather, it is learned by experience!
