DBS hosts visitors from our Milton corporate office

Recently DBS was host to a group of visitors from Downer's Mining, Energy and Industrial corporate office in Milton, Brisbane.

The team was part of the Milton to the Mines group, touring mining operations in the Southern Bowen Basin to gain an insight into the daily routines of mining and manufacturing.

Guided by our Operations Manager, Graham Hogg and Site Managers, Andrew Christian and Paul Cooper, the team spent time on the blast bench and at our Bajool storage and manufacturing facility.

A quick “explosives 101” provided the group with a better understanding of the safety precautions required to handle explosives and they saw first-hand the product delivery process on bench.

On to Bajool, the group were given a tour of the Emulsion Manufacturing facility, including the Laboratory and Ammonium Nitrate storage.

Laura Burge, Talent and Inclusion Manager for Downer’s Mining, Energy and Industrial division wrapped-up the group’s feelings about the tour perfectly, “My big takeaway was meeting people from so many diverse backgrounds who all love what they do and bring a different and unique perspective to the workplace.”
