Assess plant site daily, and coordinate site visits and environmental assessments at other sites/facilities i am responsible for throughout western Canada. Keep a handle on pending regulations (Provincial and Federal) that could affect operations and work with various stakeholders and committees in providing feedback to regulators on amendments that could impact the cement industry.
Learned good troubleshooting skills for mechanical filtration equipment as well as sampling and procedural documentation methods.
Management is good, but struggles at times to be proactive and create strategic long-term outcomes.
Great co-workers and team within the organization.
Hardest part of the job is justifying proactive considerations for the cement plant as well as other sites (eg: potential benefits of alternative fuel use).
Most enjoyable part is the constant new challenges faced.
