Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – KwaZulu-Natal, Richards bay – 1 August 2017
I have a mixed of good and bad days at work as a supervisor on shift with your team no one knows what's going to break or fail, some shifts go well whereby we as at team concentrate on improvements, spares, SAP, training; etc and on the so called bad days we are busy sorting out the breakdowns in the various plants that's under my control, if the breakdown requires contractors to rig/weld/fabricate, I go ahead and arrange the resources, spares and create a plan to follow until completion to the task.
Enjoyable and challenging when your experience is put to the test when carrying out fault finding, working safely and speedily to get the plant back into production.
With all said the hard part is to monitor each activity with each minute spent and a total report is drawn up and submitted and end of each shift with hourly reporting on the progress, sometime challenging when you are busy in-between multiple breakdowns but at the end of it all the work gets done,
