BHP Production and Maintenance

Operations Services is a new organisation created within BHP to accelerate productivity improvements and reduce its use of labour hire workers.

A team of directly employed, permanent workers will be assembled in Operations Services to deliver services currently outsourced through labour hire companies.  It is expected the new roles will drive business improvements and better performance.

People will have the opportunity to apply for permanent roles with BHP that include benefits such as job stability, competitive salary, performance related bonuses, flexible work options and permanent entitlements including paid parental, sick and annual leave, and access to the company share program.

BHP is committed to maintaining its global competitiveness, and to achieving ongoing advances in performance.  This decision is also about building our long term capability.

The Operations Services model was introduced to parts of our business some months ago, and for the past year we have been working on building the supporting systems, capability and processes that have made this a possible option for our sites.  

BHP Spokesperson:

“The goal of Operations Services is to accelerate production improvements and enable BHP to leverage best practice.”  

“Operations Services offers permanent jobs for workers – many of whom are currently labour hire employees and will provide security and flexibility to them, labour stability and productivity benefits for BHP.”
