As scaffold worker for over 40 years

Among those who have worked diligently at one type of occupation for a long period is Rim Chon Bom at the Chonnaeri Cement Factory.

He has been working at the factory as a scaffold worker for over four decades.

When he was assigned to the factory after finishing the middle school course, he volunteered to be a scaffold worker that others generally hesitate to become.

“I did not want to do only ordinary work that anyone can do,” recalled Rim.

Scaffold work is not an easy job as it involves moving enormous machine parts at a giddy height.

He tried hard to hone his technical skills as he learned experience and knacks from veteran skilled hands and attended a college under the study-while-you-work system.

In that course, he became a labour innovator who proficiently carries out his assignments by dint of novel ideas and considerable technical knowledge and skills.

Some years ago, a project for remodelling a calcination tower was undertaken at the factory.

At that time, some people insisted that steel pipes and other facilities weighing dozens of tons could never be lifted up to the height of dozens of metres without a crane. But Rim came up with a bold method of lifting them with a hoist to help complete the project successfully.

At the time of repairing a kiln, he also thought up an idea of carrying a heavy object, which was believed to take at least a fortnight, in a few days, thereby contributing to shortening the period of repair and normalizing cement production.

Officials and workers of the factory praised him as an asset of the factory as he always carried out his assignments admirably with fiery passion and great devotion.

Officials unanimously say they usually call him first whenever difficult technical problems arise.

While performing feats of labour, he was awarded a citation of Chairman Kim Jong Il and high state decorations.

He was also conferred the title of Merited Builder in December 2014.
