Bell Bay Aluminium

The role of the maintenance Team leader is a key one in Maintenance. It can be quite a challenging role as brings together not only balancing teams activities in preventative, corrective and predictive maintenance, but doing them in a safe manner and to a quality standard. There is a strong need to satisfy operations requests and needs, but also dealing with team and people issues, solving the problems and tackling the day to day challenges the role can bring.

Swiss Army Knife

The role can often be thrown other challenges eg. projects, improvement activities, working on maintenance strategies, training and often even planning and scheduling on top of coordination and execution of day to day maintenance tasks of a team which is typically core to the role.

With a lot of challenges to balance, it is a very crucial role in maintenance as this is where rubber hits the road. You can have the best maintenance strategy, the best maintenance plans and schedule, however without the team leader, its unlikely a team will come together to implement and execute these maintenance activities in a safe, efficient and effective manner.

This workshop will have Bell Bay Aluminium share on their own insights and learnings on a role they take quite seriously. Come share and learn from others who also have an interest in this topic.

Some of the topics to be discussed on the day may include:

  • Prioritisation and delegation
  • Key attributes of a good team leader
  • Support the role requires
  • Planning and scheduling
  • Coordination and execution
  • Budgeting for continual work
  • Communication with team and across shifts
  • Role in problem solving
  • Mentoring
  • Discipline and dealing with difficult people
  • Motivating the team

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. There will be no vendor companies in attendance at this meeting. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – a mini presentation (2 slides), something that you can present in 5min maximum. It could comprise a few photos, a brief descriptions of the current efforts/learnings, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or share knowledge or expertise. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
