Work team or supervisor?
Should a team assembled by the Water Authority be present on-site during the performance of work at an unmanned treatment plant? Or, should a full-time supervisor be assigned to the project? If so, the supervisor will need to be completely familiarised with the plant. This is a big ask for all concerned. Sooner or later, something is bound to go wrong if nobody is present on-site who can properly assess the risk of working on the in-service plant and can intervene immediately. Projects involving unmanned treatment plants require a robust project team to identify the risks and to make sure the project is completed safely.
