10 Dec Staff member spotlight – Dan Caulfield
Dan Caulfield – Inspector, Waterstop Solutions QLD
We are very pleased to have Dan on board. He is an absolute true team player and is doing a spectacular job of picking up our concepts. He has been working on the tools, doing inspections, and helping to write up quotes. Dan has shown some great passionate dedication by swapping into roles at the last minute to help with emergencies.
As part of Dan’s Engineering Degree, earlier this year, he spent 3 weeks at a mine site up north where he did his practical experience as part of his thesis. Dan’s thesis project is on the classification and management of diesel emissions of underground equipment. Currently, they are managed using a NSW guideline that Dan believes requires updating due to the improvement of diesel equipment emissions since the implementation of this guideline.
