Even though difficult and labor intensive at times, I really liked working in the HazMat industry. Too bad PSC was more interested in profit and liability than they were in abiding by the "Right to Know" laws that govern the industry. Even the manager of our Tacoma facility at the time of my accident supposedly didn't know what it was that I was thrown into the tanker to pump, rinse and treat. Anyway, despite my burn, (I ended up only having to have my right thumb amputated) as I said, I really liked the work. And I was wondering if you knew of any employment opportunities either with Kitsap County, or one of our federal installations. Or if you hear of any in the future, do you think you could email the pertinent info to me @ markb812@ hotmail, or markblate@yahoo? Thank You !!! Sincerely, Mark Blowers
Rick, I was surfing the net looking for info on opal and gold mines in Washington State when somehow I came across your "interesting" article here. First of all, I live in Kitsap County, born & raised. Next, I too am a former employee of Burlington/ PSC. Although I have "toured the Georgetown Plant, I occasionally worked a few shifts at the Kent plant only when they were short on manpower on some of their larger projects. But I was full time at the Tacoma Facility, working swing shift with 3 others. And let me tell ya......... OH THE STORIES WE COULD TELL that most people would find to be nothing short of HORRIFIC!!
