Engineers: To check all the computers are working to the standards and to fix the computers that aren't functioning properly. This uses Physics.

The machines before were not tested regularly, in fact, they were only tested once every year. Not many people where up to standards with "Health and Safety", whereas now everyone knows just in case a member of staff may be ill and someone has to take over. Also there was no white uniform and women were allowed to keep long hair and long nails but now the modifications have changed and the white uniform is a must for hygienic purposes and for the safety of the consumers. There weren't many setbacks for Thames Water because they always have to be alert when supplying to water. Any sort of contamination would cost them severely and will affect millions of homes.
