It's pretty sad there are people in this world that get paid to think of stuff like this. Honestly, do they really think these acronyms and safety jargon actually help? If so, it's a sick world out there...

They can call it whatever they want. Work too fast and be safe. I sometimes have trouble with that.:ohmy:

Re: farewell HABITS, welcome back SWM

Sorry kids SWM is not new. HABITS replaced SWM in the mid '90's. UPS has gone back to Safe Work Methods, not come up with something new.

Does the name change mean that center management will have to create about 20 new binders full of 100 pieces of paper each? Great...now my operations manager can tell us all how embarrassed he is to have us work for him because one out of the 2000 pieces of papers is missing. It's a pretty sneaky strategy now that I think about it...keep us all inside filing paper and we can't go out on the road and get hurt.
