Working in a harsh environment

Winter is over (almost), Shelagh has whacked us with her brush and its time to finish up a mini-project about working in a harsh environment. This is nothing new for Newfoundlanders who have always made their lives from land and the sea, going out in all weather, but its always been a low tech affair, muscle, endurance and will. Hauling nets and hauling wood.

 The coming of the offshore oil industry to the North Atlantic has introduced high tech to the work environment allowing both a more comfortable and safe working conditions but also the challenge of keeping the high tech working when Mother Nature has other ideas. In the end, someone still has to go out there in the weather and chain down the load …and someone has to go photograph it.
