After being a science communicator/children's performer for the first bit of my career, I have now moved into safety. I'm just about to complete a grad cert in OHS and am working part time in the field within a education centre context.
I have already figured out that I love investigations and inspections and would prefer a more active job than one where you sit down all day doing policy etc. And I think transport investigation would be really interesting and enjoyable. Rail seems like a good industry to be a part of and I know that there's been a bit of a push toward hiring women. So that's the rationale.
I looked up the career progression and I see that it's a job you can only get after a bit of experience, plus how am I supposed to investigate a system I've never worked in. So, how do I crack into the rail industry? It seems like you already have to have a RIW card for most of the jobs I see posted around the place. So how to get started?
And what entry jobs would be best for getting to my ultimate goal?
Thanks for the help all
