BHP Billiton has completed the process of centralising the major operating roles at its coking and thermal coal mines in Queensland and New South Wales. BHP’s integrated remote operating centre in Brisbane employs 212 people who perform functions that were previously undertaken at each mine. In addition to transferring existing staff to the remote hub, BHP has hired about 30 additional employees, with many recruits having a non-mining background.
