When i was working in industry . I was working as process engineer. I have right to take important decision about process plant but sometimes i need to take permission for important decision. Here i want to discuss one incident when i have conflicts with my supervisor. I was working in nitro benzen plan . One day , thare was getting acid in feed tank of the distillation column. So its damaged the packing material of the whole column . We need to do emergencyshutdown of the plant . For ensure, we checked the sample in lab . It was contain acid. So my manager was asking me how you got acid in feed tank because we are maintaining ph of feed in last face of the plant by adding caustic. So i explain them that the employees who was in night he didn’t maintain the certain level og feed in the reaction so its gone up at certain hight and its moving with the product in washing section . However, the night guy doesn’t even check the sample of washing section .thats why we got acid in feed tank. Unfortunately, my supervisor was making false by giving his opinion and he started sauting and misbehave with me . Than afteri request them to come in plant and take the sample of washer and check the ph . So you will come to know about the exact situation. And finally, he agree with me we took the sample and check the ph as welll as we run the sample through GC so we got the percentage of component. This is the way I solved my conflict and I always work with patience and try to find out the batter way to deal with situations. Less
