GPS systems are active in all I+M, CXM and Line vehicles. Use caution when traveling in any of these vehicles. Do not deviate from work locations unless you notify your manager. Drive at a safe speed and use caution when idling your trucks . All of these things and more can be seen on a GPS report. Adhere to the old phrase “be where you’re supposed to be”
A reminder to all technicians who use a tablet. You are not required to take these tablets home. These are company devices and should be stored at your work location. Be careful with data usage, as this is monitored as well. Some APPS will continue to update and will cause excessive data usage, so limit downloading any APP that will do this.
The company has been conducting safety rides throughout the Local. It is important that all members in safety sensitive job titles have the proper safety equipment. There should be no one heading out to a job without this equipment. You are responsible for your own safety. This not only means working safely but making sure that you start the day with everything you need to do your job safely. PPE or personal protective equipment is vital to every day functions. Make sure you have it and make sure you use it. If any member has any questions on safety procedures, there are a lot of avenues for you to get these questions answered. The local has safety coaches and we have a lot of information here at the Union office. These are both options for you if you are unsure of how to handle an unsafe condition. There is nothing that we do that is worth even the slightest injury. Always be aware of your surroundings and do not cut corners. Safety must always be our #1 priority.
