    Operator's responsibility- plant production & safety


    Operators have many production responsibilities, including take action to prevent and solve problems. An activity that operators may be involved in to help prevent problem is preventive maintenance.

    Generally, part of an operators job involves making regular inspections of the equipment in the unit. With experience, an operator can detect early sings of equipment problems, such as abnormal changes in flow, pressure, or temperature.


    Operators perform a variety of tasks related to unit production. Many of these tasks are routine duties that may seem very basic, but they still must be done properly.

    • Housekeeping
    • Taking scheduled readings of process variables
    • Somewhat less routine

    As another production responsibility, some operators are involved in vapor emissions monitoring. In many plants, operators check for vapor leaks at valve bonnets, piping flanges, and packing glands to find and eliminate toxic emissions.
