Trades person (Former Employee), Jansen Saskatchewan – August 14, 2013
Pros: surrounded by excellent trades people
Cons: backpack mine is trying to build a mind
My experience at other BHP projects has been outstanding. safe, rewarding work. Jansen is a different story. My time working under the direction of DMC was only brief.

A JHA was an inconvenience to DMC supervisors. morning line up is a joke. poor communication and insulting to the professional's in the room. injuries and damage seem to be just part of the cost of doing business. If there's been a restructuring of the management team then maybe the DMC project it's worth a look at.
Good luck, and perhaps look before you jump at the job. – less
