Typical day at work: Collect production figures of the previous day from shift foremen, update them in the metallurgical accounting spread sheet and send to management. then start compiling production report and technical report to have an overall performance of the plant. send report to management after completion. Plant walkabout and equipments evaluation.Technical meeting.
What I have learned is to work as a team, plant operation and control, plant process chemistry and practical aspects of engineering.
Management: Always emphasising on safety of one and those working with. Concerned about employee's growth and development.
Co-workers : Very ambitious, interesting and hard working people. Safety conscious and willing to help.
The hardest part of the job: Plant performance is unpredictable especially with aspects that are weather dependent. Breakdowns that need immediate investigation and solutions. Projects that were not scheduled in time but due to plant performance, they must be carried out.
Enjoyable part of the job: Carrying out plant surveys. One gets to learn more not only intellectually but personally especially because you are working with different people of different departments.
