    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    You’re the one that told me there are no standards for injuries then said one could be fired for not reporting.

    If there’s no standard how can I be fire for not reporting something I don’t consider an injury?

    I said I don’t set the standard for injuries.

    I believe you are being intentionally coy.

    A small child knows when he gets a boo, boo on the hand.

    A grown up employee of UPS certainly knows or should know for the most part when they have a hand injury, even when it is not very severe.

    I hope you report all vehicle accidents, regardless of the severity and not just the ones you don’t consider to be accidents. I don’t think you logic would help you if this is how you operate.

    No. As I indicated earlier, this company doesn’t care if we have an adequate supply of toilet paper for the restrooms, or driver release bags (or tape, pens, info notices...), so why would they care about gloves?

    Certain facilities do.

    I believe in any facility where the employees took seriously the reporting of hand injuries, especially minor ones the management would care very much about gloves.

    Correctly selected gloves do a good job at preventing most minor hand injuries.

    The question really is do the employees really care enough.

    Apparently a lot of employees don’t even care about reporting injuries that are more severe let alone less severe hand injuries.

    Our ups facility does not
    Amazon does provide gloves to all employees. They also have water coolers next to the unload/load doors. They also have climate controlled buildings.

    Socks are technically gloves for my feet and they don’t supply those either.

    I reported a hand injury. I got hauled into talk with all kinds of management. The full time wall guy, the sort manager, the division manager. Oh put ice on it, oh it is because of your age, well guess what....I have a lawyer and the ups doctor guy even agreed.....Work related. Report everything!

    I'm surprised the UPS doctor didn't give you a bottle of 500mg ibuprofen, a pat on the bottom and a full release to return to work.
