<P>5 This company has opened the doors for many to learn and grow in their career. I would tell a young person to make use of the opportunities that have been available to you, because trust me, there are many! both bpTT and the Government. The royalties earned are contributed towards national development and a better life for our citizens. Another area that we perform at the lab is the monitoring of all environmental indicators here at Galeota – ef?uent discharges into the Guayaguayare Bay and Mayaro beach. BPTT has rigourous environmental standards that align with the law stipulations with respect to regulatory discharges to the environment. In other words, there are clear limitations for what can be discharged into the environment and in what amounts. We analyze those ?gures to ensure that they are within the speci?cations. Q: Youve committed over 30 years of service, working shifts and being called out as needed. How has your job affected your family life? A: In the early years it was very dif?cult, as I would often spend most of my weekends at work. When I joined the company, I was a bachelor; but got married soon after. My wife understood the demands of my job. She stood by me and we raised our children together. I believe that my ambition and drive left a lasting impression on our children and set an example they could live by. During my time here, I have also been keen on self-improvement and making use of the opportunities that have come my way. Ive completed two Bachelors degrees, and studied for two Masters degrees: Master of Science in Environmental Engineering in 2010 and Master of Science in Occupational, Environmental Health and Safety in 2012; all studied part time at University of the West Indies in St Augustine. As it relates to my family: my wife is a school-teacher, one of my daughters is in her ?nal year at UWI St. Augustine and my other daughter attends Johns Hopkins University pursuing her masters in epidemiology and statistics. For the past six years my son Sherard has been working here at the terminal as an Operator Technician with the Kenson Group. I am indeed very proud of my childrens accomplishments and I know that the job I have held has helped to provide and motivate them to work hard to achieve their own personal success. Q: Over the years, what are some of the more notable changes you have seen in the company? A: The big changes Ive witnessed have been in safety and technology. Being connected to the BP group, we have seen and embraced the BP model as it relates to safety. An example of this is the work permit requirement for every job conducted. It is clearly visible how workmen have changed their behaviours towards safety and have put it at the forefront of how we work. There is a new rigor in the business when it comes to applying the technology and standards and in the lab we see a lot more emphasis on areas like calibrations, procedures, and use of state of the art equipment. For me this means that I have to be very attentive to my job. Although safety and technology have changed, being able to be a part of the change has helped me to grow as an individual. By working with bpTT, I have been exposed to many areas of the operations here at the terminal, and one of my real passions is in waste water management. I have seen bpTT improve over the years and I look forward to learning more as I advance in my career here. I have been fortunate to work with some excellent, caring individuals and there are many of them still around us at bpTT. Q: What advice can you give to a new recruit who just joined the company? A: This company has opened the doors for many to learn and grow in their career. I would tell a young person to make use of the opportunities available to you, because trust me, there are many! Keep on reading and keep learning. You can never learn too much! Q: What do you do in your spare time? A:I am a country boy at heart, so I spend a lot of my spare time in the garden. I grow a lot of my own food around the house in the form of vegetables and ?ne crops. I also enjoy walking at least three times weekly. You have to take care of your health and try to have some balance especially where certain job functions can be very demanding.</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/3/3/">Page-1</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/4/4/">Page-2</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/5/5/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/6/6/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/7/7/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/8/8/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/9/9/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/10/10/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/11/11/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/12/12/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/13/13/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/14/14/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/15/15/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/16/16/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/17/17/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/18/18/">Page-16</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/19/19/">Page-17</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/20/20/">Page-18</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/21/21/">Page-19</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/22/22/">Page-20</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/23/23/">Page-21</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/24/24/">Page-22</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/25/25/">Page-23</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/26/26/">Page-24</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/27/27/">Page-25</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/28/28/">Page-26</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/29/29/">Page-27</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/30/30/">Page-28</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/31/31/">Page-29</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publication/520/yclxumnzw/32/32/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.mzines.net/publications/520/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
