My typical day at work would be to do a proper and complete shift relief from the out going operator. Going over any incidents and possible problems that may come up. I would go and do my own personal walkthrough before my shift meeting, looking for issues that could come up. What i learned from the refinery and or chemical plant is to respect the process because it can be unforgiven and dangerous. Management plays a big role in production by that they call the shots so good communications skills with management is very important. Workplace culture is crucial in the field being that working with the dangers could cause a disaster, so safety is very day is the culture i believe in bringing to the job. The hardest part of the job would be to encourage co-workers and new hires is to never cut corners follow the work order as written, never attempt to do job you are not qualified to perform and ask question and ask for help, always least 2 people, never work alone! Safety is first. The enjoyable part is learning that all incidents can and will be different, know your process, know your equipment and what is its function .
Good Learning, Good Pay and benefits
You must respect the process!
