    A slag pit attendant would attend, or look after, a slag pit. This seems to be where the residue of a steel furnace, or similar industrial process, is deposited.

    "Slag" is the mineral waste from mines, furnaces or similar industrial processes. This is normally piled up onto slag heaps, so I expect that slag tips is an alternative name for these; a pit suggests that the slag is being buried in holes in the ground.
