Good luck man! I'm can't ever tell if you type the way you do on tbh because its tbh and its funny or thats really how you type? If that is really your type I would think a large part of that position is incident reports/recap write ups. I would focus on some skill improvements there.

Confidence is key in an interview. Don't be a know it all but try not to lag too long in answering questions. A good tactic is to take a sip of water when asked a question... it'll give you a second or two to gather your thoughts and give a coherent non-rambling answer. Don't be afraid to embellish a little on your examples of how you've handled workplace safety concerns and conflicts. Don't get too long winded though, you may need to remember some of the examples at a later date. Good luck.

Try to anticipate questions and think through your answers.

Go in with questions to ask. When asked if you have any questions, the wrong answer is "no".
