The Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) Garden Gurus

The Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) Garden Gurus


Sodexo Gardeners Fran Hudson and Kylie Paki perform their jobs in extreme temperatures and a potentially sensitive and dangerous working environment.

Noxious weeds are a constant issue at the KGP, which need to be eradicated and kept under control especially around the operational areas. Weed spraying is one option but there are some areas, especially along the fence line where weeds have grown and tangled into the fibre optics, where Fran and Kylie need to dig these weeds out manually.

Working outdoors in this environment can prove challenging and sometimes dangerous, so these gardening gurus maintain safety as their number one priority. Both have just completed their Weed Spraying Technicians course. Fran and Kylie have real passion for gardening and are making a visible difference for our customers and staff at KGP.

You will see above Sodexo Gardeners Fran and Kylie going through their chemical handling training – They are now both qualified weed spraying technicians! Also Fran getting a helping hand from Craig Hunt weeding on hands and knees at KGP.
