On behalf of BHP Billiton Olympic Dam Corporation and the Smelter Shutdown Team, I would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for your company’s participation and support in the recent shutdown. All shutdowns present a challenge and require the closest of cooperation and teamwork from all involved, employees, contractors and suppliers. Your company’s role is much appreciated and we look forward to your continued support. Given the constraints faced during the planning and execution stages of the shutdown, the Smelter Shutdown has been a very successful one and the works done will provide significant benefits to our business in future. We thank you for your involvement and look forward to your continued support in future.
Manager - Smelter Outage
“Our Mine Maintenance Team would like to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of your employees who attended our recent Shutdown at the start of July. A well executed exercise without harm, please pass on our appreciation.”
"Paul and Daniel, thanks for the visit it’s good to speak with people who are committed and passionate about safety."
“I see good value in the sentries we have on this shut down. I have spoken to some of them and questioned them about their duties and their answers let me know that they are confident in their roles. They are also asking for safety information which re – enforces their professionalism. ”
“BLH is the best on site for representing and auditing their workers with regard to TTTC/Start-Restart Cards and JHAs, and also their audits conducted on site”

“I would like to congratulate BLH on the safety performance & overall execution of the work carried out during the past 9 months on both anode furnaces, while we always aim for Zero Harm, to have only one FAC over 20,000 plus man-hours is an great achievement. Your team’s attitude throughout was both professional and positive in all area’s which is reflected in the final outcome for AF 3 of Zero Harm, on time & within budget. These were our goals at the start of the job and we achieved all three. Also would like to express my gratitude for the quality supervision BLH supplied, as you well know, without this a successful outcome is hard to achieve. Special mention must go to Josh, who is one of the best project leader’s I have had the pleasure of working with, his natural skill in interacting with operational people, whether it be the senior management (VP`s) or one of the smelter operator’s, is second to none. His friendly "can do" attitude and warm nature ensures he gets all on board around him to achieve a quality outcome. From the conversations I have had it is clear that the smelter leadership team agree, he is a credit to BLH, you are lucky to have him working with you. Again, thanks and look forward to working with you & your team in the near future”
“Very happy with the professional service supplied by BLH”
“I would like to officially advise you of my resignation with BLH as maintenance fitter in the smelter at Olympic Dam. As of the 31st of August I will be employed by BHP Billiton, but still in the same role. I would like to take this time to thank you both very much for everything you have done for not only myself but my family aswell, over the past 21 months. It has been a real privilege to have worked with you both and such a fantastic company. Working with BLH has definitely been a highlight in my career, and I have througherly enjoyed working for a company that cares so much about the wellbeing of their workers and families. Once again I thankyou and BLH for giving me a chance, and giving me the opportunity to create a whole new future for my family and I. No doubt I will still get the chance to see you both again in the future. Thankyou very much once again. ”
