    Not too much that someone off the street couldn't deal with. You don't need any qualifications to do it at least. It's probably more how you cope under pressure.
    It's mainly dealing with car accidents and removing hazards off of roads. Part way between road worker and traffic control

    I personally like shift work, and it's not too bad, mainly Monday to Friday either 6am to 2pm or 2pm to 10 pm. Weekends are 12 hours and night shifts are 10pm to 6am Sunday to thursday but they only roll around once every 2 months or so. Weekends you generally do 1 a month depending on whether other people want to do them or swap/give them away

    Luck I think, I just happened to chuck an application in and somehow I got an interview and ended up getting the job.
    I had a fair bit of experience volunteering with the S.E.S. so that probably gave me a bit of a leg up. But I love my job, best job in the world.

    No, but I have shoveled all sorts of dead animals off the road with varying degrees of intactness.

    Not exactly a job for someone with family commitments by the sounds.

    Heard recently that a friend of a friend left his job in real estate and started his own "business" cleaning solar panels on house rooves.
    Apparently he goes around with a ladder, some special high tech anti dirt cleaning solution (windex) in a spray bottle and a bag of rags. Charges $50 per house and recommends annual repeats.

    7-10 houses a day 5 days a week, mostly paying cash and you'd be pretty comfortable I'd think.

    My friend was pretty vague when I asked about the safe working at heights. Seemed to me that to be above board he'd need to be harnessed.

    Working on the roof is a can of worms. A job that you can do simply at home, becomes a major expense if you need to pay a business to come in with harnesses and scaffolds and crap.
    Of course it hits the elderly or the disabled.

    Yeah agree. I've got my safe working at heights so understand the requirements which is why that stood out to me straight away.
    I got the feeling that this guy was just jumping up on the roof with his ladder, giving a quick spray and wipe and bingo that'll be 50 bucks thanks.

    Working in wineries is good pay especially if you are a grade 3-4 doing shifts
    Can pull close to 80,000 a year if not more

    Wonder if we'll ever know how it happened.

    Is it safe to assume that "unskilled driver who was paid very well forgot to put the handbrake on "?
