What does a plant operator do?Originally posted by newtradesman
I have been hearing the term "plant operator" used alot in many of the buildings I am visiting.
The guys with the title seem to walk around and look at stuff but I don't see any of them doing much labor type work.
What is a plant operator?
What do they do?
What qualifications do they need?
Is the pay good?
What do you do?
A plant operator runs things, and is usually a master electrician, or boilermaker. Knows how to monitor and troubleshoot complex systems, and gets paid well for it. Sorry guy but it isn't something that you can just apply for.
