Ariana Flores Amador: “The sky is the limit at Techint E&C”
Ariana Flores Amador has been pursuing her career for almost a decade in the Quality, Health, Safety and Environment area at Techint Engineering & Construction, where her greatest satisfaction is "to make sure people get home safe, sound and happy."
Ariana Flores Amador studied Industrial Engineering and joined Techint E&C in 2013, starting work with the QHSE team at a steel project under way at the TenarisTamsa Industrial Center in Veracruz, Mexico.
After the COVID-19 pandemic, she took on a new challenge at the Olmeca Refinery project in Dos Bocas, Tabasco, where she is the Head of QHSE at the Effluent Treatment Plant.
Part of her mission involves supervising and ensuring that internal procedures are followed to avoid deviations while the project is being built, monitoring the environmental impact of the works, as well as the safety and health of her work teams.
For Ariana, working at QHSE is immensely satisfying and, “I don't see myself in any other area because I find looking after people very rewarding, it’s about making sure people make it home safe, sound and happy,” she says.
In these years at Techint E&C, the QHSE leader has grown professionally and learned many life lessons along the way, one of which she highlights—self-motivation—as it’s a skill she incorporated thanks to the example given by her first boss at the company.
“If I’m motivated, that means I have a good reason to leave the house in the morning, and to finish the day satisfied with what I did. And that’s how we managed to build this extraordinary project we’re working on today: the Dos Bocas refinery,” she explains.
Another thing that Ariana has learned during her professional career is that “the sky is the limit at Techint and you can grow as much as you want, to the point where you can say ‘this is what I set out to do’.”
This is why she envisages a future of continuous personal and professional growth at the company. “I see myself as a QHSE manager—and, why not, even at regional level,” she shares.
