Humans of Bis – Richie

At Bis, our people are skilled, trained and experienced. Meet Richie: A Heavy Duty Fitter at Granny Smith Mine, an underground gold mining operation located 740km northeast of Perth in Western Australia where we provide haulage and civil construction services.

Richie first started with Bis ten years ago in Kalgoorlie as a mobile fitter, followed by two years at St Ives as a fitter, and now six years at Granny Smith in his current role. As a Heavy Duty Fitter, Richie’s responsibilities include maintaining and repairing road trains, loaders, graders, dump trucks, light vehicles and a host of other equipment.

A usual day for Richie can vary, and that’s what he loves about his job – there is no typical day and it’s always changing. Of his time with Bis, Richie says the best parts have been the challenges that have forced him to think outside of the box.
