Fam­i­lies gain FMG in­sights

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

Fam­i­lies of Port Hed­land’s Fortes­cue Met­als Group em­ploy­ees re­cently had the op­por­tu­nity to gain in­sight into Hed­land’s unique port and rail in­dus­try.

The fam­ily and com­mu­nity tour is one sev­eral reg­u­lar tours con­ducted by FMG through­out the year at all of its sites.

The at­ten­dees, some of whom had trav­elled from as far as Perth, were taken through Fortes­cue’s Port and Rail op­er­a­tions and en­joyed lunch at Hamil­ton village.

FMG gen­eral man­ager of port and rail Fer­nando Pereira said the tour was a high­light of the year for some of those in­volved, and a chance for young ones to de­velop an un­der­stand­ing of what their par­ents do.

He said it was an op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity and the fam­i­lies to gain valu­able in­sights into day-to-day op­er­a­tions. “We are proud of the re­la­tion­ship that we have with the com­mu­nity in Port Hed­land, where the ma­jor­ity of our Pil­bara res­i­den­tial work­force is based,” he said.

He said the vis­its were es­sen­tial to sup­port the health and well­be­ing of the work­force, by en­sur­ing fam­i­lies were able to feel con­nected through gain­ing a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the op­er­a­tions.
