    You think that'll fly when the employee could've brought it to work in their cooler? The OP said they were on the way to the first stop, not in the middle of the day and ran out of ice.

    If you got the ice early instead of taking your normal time morning break, maybe you broke the rules about when to use your break, but you certainly aren’t stealing time.

    The problem was that it wasn't coded out that day before they punched out or the total allowed breaks were expended and the board was punched out without coding unpaid personal time in it to cover the time. I am amazed at the petty garbage the company requires of PC drivers and here they let a certain feeder driver stand around all the time because the pcs they pick up shows them greatly under allowed every day. Total garbage.

    Yes. Any downtime should be utilized by studying the 8 point commentary and the 13 yard control methods, or even the A B C's of seeing habits.

    We got that covered for mornings.

    Get close.
    Position feet.
    Call your coworker over.
    Call another neighbor over.
    Tell them to bend at the knees.
    Coordinate their lift.
    Watch as they grab the package in the middle by the straps.
    Test for weight and shifting contents by shaking boxes full of fragile things.
    Tell them where to put the package.
    Make sure they lift with a smooth, steady motion.
    Watch them twist instead of stepping or pivoting.
    Throwing packages onto the floor counts as using existing equipment.

    No where in my training does it say I have to bring my own water and ice to work.

    Per UPS I am to take steps to prevent heat related illnesses. Getting ice water is one of those.
