Run till ya keel over
You better keel over on lunch or else it's stealing time and you will be fired!
I think air conditioning is the reason. You become accustomed to the heat without it.
Summertime is the best. I can drink a gallon of water and never have to pee. Eat whatever I want cause it just pours out of my sweatglands throughout the next day. No school buses, no school zones, everybody is super nice cause they feel bad we have no ac (I got numerous free drinks from random businesses last summer. Soda Red Bull Gatorade. Good times
My building had a skid of cases of water on hand for a few weeks last summer. Also handed out these water jugs to almost everybody. A couple times they even had 3 large coolers filled with bottles of water on ice at the PCM
EDIT: Then they had the nerve 2-3 weeks after the heat wave to ask why we were over-allowed so much the last ~5 weeks... big heat wave then 12” of rain over 2 weeks requiring a lot of DR bags.
I'm not so sure about that. I've had central air in all my houses since I got married in 71. I even turned them on once or twice.
First building I worked out of for 8 years didn't even have drinkable water. There was no water fountain and a big warning sign on the bathroom faucet
OMG, this summer is gonna be fun when they piss me off. I am going to print off about 12 of these and put one on the desk before anyone has a chance to open their gashes when I get called into the office about over allowed!!!!
That’s exactly what it is.
Even 10 years ago we rarely had guys having heat related issues. Now it’s a weekly event from June-August
I believe ya ... seen many tennis players fall out with EMTs pumping saline solution into them.
F you @542thruNthru
We have 2 of the 5 gallon jug ‘fountains’. Water supplier wasn’t keeping up so they started having skids of water bottles delivered.
We’re told not to drink the tap water either, ours is from a well and we’re in an industrial area.
Think about this for a second. When I started we would drive around with the bulkhead door open while doing resis or business parks. I would also “air out” the truck when it got too hot while driving with the bulkhead and back door open. We also did not have Orion telling us to dig for packages. Times have changed old man.
Who has the balls to call OSHA this year when it gets hot?
Did they leave your skid of water in a non-AC room, causing it to taste like plastic after a week?
I can't believe the example cited in the case is a 107 degree heat index. I'm in New England and we get such indexes because of our high humidity. In the south, that's just a normal summer day. For Arizona and other pockets, 107 is a cool day in July and August. What does OSHA have to stand on using such a low threshold? You can't shut down all outdoor work for 2-3 months out of the year.
You worked in the 70s too?
It’s not about shutting down work. It’s about reducing the word load and understanding a drop in performance, as well as make a honest attempt to keep us safe.
That's what it should be about but this case with OSHA was simply having mail carriers go out at all. Post office was being fined for being open.
It sure has-everyone has gotten soft
