Project Description

  • Work in a unique operating plant which manufactures a wide range of finished products, involving the use of extremely hazardous raw materials. 
  • New product development and continuous improvement to existing formulations and procedures occurs continuously (greater than 125 process changes per year). Operators are required to review and comprehend all process changes. 
  • Requires the handling of many pyrophoric, toxic, corrosive and extremely hazardous materials.  
  • Extreme caution must be exercised in the performance of all job duties to ensure personal safety and prevent all incidents or environmental releases. 
  • Must ensure that the control room is attended at all times. 
  • Must have working knowledge of total plant.  Operator is required to interpret and notify appropriate personnel when any alarms or unusal activity is observed. 
  • Coordinate and activate emergency procedure when appropriate and required, including the emergency telephone, emergency stop buttons for various processes, emergency evacuation alarm and calls to outside agencies ambulance and fire. 
  • Required to prepare equipment for maintenance work by isolating, depressurizing and decontaminating piping or pumps. 
  • Required to perform pressure testing and leak checking following repairs or preventative maintenance prior to starting up normal operations. 
  • Operators rotate areas of responsibility on a shift basis, throughout the two trains running in the plant. 
  • A knowledge of all areas is required by the four operating groups. 
  • Competently operate the following equipment and perform procedures:   
    • High pressure autoclave, autoclave vent scrubber associated heat exchanger, pumps and instrumentation in both trains. 
    • Phosphine weigh tank and associated instrumentation in both trains 
    • Catalyst mix tank and associated pumps and instrumentation in both trains
