Our sups told us it was the "Ketter Group" that was out doing observations. 1 driver has already been fired. Take it one delivery at a time and follow all the methods and stay out all night.
Blind side backs? Backing without permission? You mean, backing your package car into a dock or is there some vernacular I haven't picked up...
ahhhhhh I remember this stuff now. HABITS b.s.Types of backing at UPS safest to the least safest.
1. No backing - aka the only backing permitted.
2. Driver side -backing to the driver side of vehicle
3. Straight backing
4. Blind side - backing to the passenger side of vehicle
Is anybody out there having management follow them around busting people for not using hand rail, bad DR's, parking brake, bulk door open, packages in cab? Its been an everyday thing here in OH.
Think about this next time you leave your vehicle and it is not secure:
Here in Memphis we had 2 drivers run a package up to a home and leave the bulk head door open as well as the passenger door. Both had only left the vehicle for 15-20 seconds. When they returned someone was in the cargo area - pulled a gun, made them strip, and ducted taped them up. The robbers later parked the car in area off the route and took what they wanted. When the drivers didn't come in on time and it got really late the police was contacted and luckily for both they were found still alive, but needless to say they were really shaken up and both went out for a while on stress leave.
This was about 2 years ago and one of the drivers has still not been able to return to work (disability)
Be careful, but most of all be smart!
