I finally got out of the class room and onto the tools today. After three days of being induced by Bechtel, Thiess and whoever else was lined up to have their way with us, me and all the other newbies got our chance to see the light of day and go and cut up some cable tray.
After a brief tour of the site with one of the supervisors (including repeated reminders not to operate any machinery or just plain fuck up) , we were turned loose on the water pumps near the thickener tanks onsite.
It’s all stainless and aluminum here.
This gig should only last till December, I reckon I’ll enjoy it.
