My day would start with a short cross shift hand over with the previous crew. I would write down all the information I would need such as any hazards or extra gear I need to take underground with me. Management would go through the daily targets and any hazards that will be in our work area and also if there were any firing on our shift. Work place culture is very strong and everyone looks out for everyone and help if help is needed. The hardest part of the job is to try and keep everyone on a zero harm frame of mind and the enjoyable part of the job is doing the safe and making sure I leave the job safe for the next person behind me and returning home to my family.
Being in a good work culture and leading by example
Start at 5:30am, start meeting at 5:50am, head underground about 6:30am in a light vehicle travailing about 2km to get to the underground working, where i would install GS, the GST consisted of J-tec bolts, cable, oz-row stra, split set , 900mm stubbiesand this would all be install on a square meter.
12.5 hours a day production mining have had the chance to upskill which is a huge benefit they need to pick there supervisiors based on skills and leadership rather than picking there own friends overall needs to be more of a team company attitude between workers. nobody really gells and a whole alot of small little 2-3 person groups all trying to catch the other out.
