Train Controller Port Hedland (Former Employee) – Port Hedland WA – 14 March 2018
I learnt how to operate the rail activities from a computer room in Port Hedland Nelson Point.
I learnt how to use excel programming to connect wagons to trains, what line they will arrive on and what line they are to depart from.
I learnt that all wagons have to be connected particularly because all the brakes are on a particular side.
I learnt how to track the train, how to monitor the wheel bearing temperatures through heat seekers. How to direct the empty trains into pull off waiting bays to allow the full trains priority to pass.
This job , as an aboriginal ex national park ranger was exciting and enjoyable because I love machinery being a Farmers son. I have the greatest respect and the willingness to continue to learn

Process Technician/Control Room Officer (Former Employee) – Port Hedland WA – 11 October 2017
I worked with a great team to be able to start up a Green field site. This was from checking systems, writing all safety documents and passing the information throughout our team. Also writing start up procedures. Before startup, we had to walk through the site to check all the piping, Process machinery, safety systems. Any faults were reported and then corrected. After learning the process, I was integral with passing this information to my peers. Working in a start up site, there was only 50 personnel in the beginning of the startup. This brought the team together with the buddy system, as well as enjoying their company outside of work.
Team work, Learning the process, enjoying life outside of the site.
Anxious of start up. New process. Sometimes not getting enough information.
