Peter O'Meara celebrates 20 years with BACS

Peter O’Meara, BACS Victorian Senior Supervisor & QA Manager, has worked at BACS for over 20 years. What started as a 3-week temporary relief position grew into much more.

Peter says he has not only worked at some amazing places in Victoria, but he has also gone to every state and territory in Australia, sometimes cleaning in Brisbane and Canberra for a week when big jobs came up or staff were on leave. Some of his fondest memories include

  • Flying to Darwin for a regularly scheduled clean every month.
  • Traveling to Pinjarra WA to clean 40 server racks which turned out to be only 4.
  • Sailing to Tasmania on the ferry for work and sleeping in a cabin with 4 other strangers.
  • Going to Katherine to clean a small server rack in an Aboriginal nursing home.
  • Cleaning phones in some unusual places like the Melbourne Zoo & College of Surgeons, just to name a few.
