When you take your cat to the vet, take that guy as well and have him snipped. There are enough dumb folks as it is.

It's always a hard decision to be a whistle blower and call OSHA. https://www.osha.gov/workers/file-complaint

Why do you continue to put up with this kind of stuff? Why don't you contact your Temp Agency and make them aware of the unsafe environment they have placed you in? What does your supervisor or manager say when you bring these unsafe working conditions to their attention?

I worked in a factory for well over 30 years, I have never heard of as much dangerous working conditions as what you have posted in the last couple of years. As an employee, I feel you have the right (and in some cases, the obligation) to contact OSHA, if the management refuses to make changes to eliminate "known" unsafe and dangerous working conditions. I'm sure there is some type of a "chain of command" at the place where you are working. Follow that process first. If there is a Safety Committee at the plant, bring your concerns to their attention. Most importantly.....DO SOMETHING about the problem before you or someone else is injured or killed!!!

Tonight i ran over some netting my wife thought she needed to keep rabbits aways from plants with my 1100 lb lawn tractor. Usually i fashion a collection of boards to create some sort of ramp to put the mower high enuf to pull blades off, but not tonight. I have old steel ramps to put a 4 wheeler in the back of my truck. i drove this up on them and i very quickly and nervously attempted to remove the middle blade, and had to use a pipe on a socket and kick it to release the mess that wound up in the spindle. Pretty sure i was laying down so as to be centered between the ramps should something give.
Now this is probably not the safest or smartest way to go about this. The moral of my story is we all have to go sometime.

What you ought to do is snatch that dork up by the collar... spin him around backwards... then jerk his britches down and give him a brutal bare butt whippin with the hardback copy of the safety manual


Insert profound nonsense here

Dave that's why they have energy lockouts on machines when preforming maintenance and repairs. If you aren't using them, that's on you, you did receive the training yes or are you operating outside of your training?

Coonman, sounds like with the dual palm buttons and safety curtain or (laser lite screen curtain), there are two safety devices. Really three if you consider a properly trained operator. We had a operator with a HUGE gut tell us his safety curtain or (laser lite screen curtain) was bad. Got over there and ever time he would mash the palm buttons his gut would break the curtain. Had to end up moving the palm buttons to keep him from whining or (losing weight). FYI, you might want to be careful. Sounds like you're borderline racist. Black people don't like being called cry babies???

Just saying man my last job was full of rundown crappy old machines and people who didn't wanna work or wanted to do nothing but work, got sick of it after like a year, checked around ,sent in an application now I make $5 more an hour don't have to get up till noon since it's a night shift and work in the A/C. Do you not have anyhother options at all other than to work in that crap hole ?

He has plenty of options for better jobs but he doesn't want to apply. I've listed a few that pay $7 to $9 more an hour and he won't go apply. For some reason he's hung up on his part time custodian job in the evenings. Bodine electric in Peosta has openings for 2nd shift with 4 10 hour shifts and he won't go. I think the part time job in the evenings gives him plenty of time to be on Trapperman or he's got someone he's sweet on working there.

He could go to Crown Holdings in Dubuque if he wanted to be a janitor for more money also but I'm sure that's a no go too.

As usual Savell gave sound advice to Coonman again grin

He does have a world of options....He himself chooses to be in this situation.

It is all tied to having time off from this part time job to trap. At least that's what I read between the lines.

Not sure why you continue to post about your work conditions. You seem to completely ignore all the suggestions and help that is offered. It's hard to help those that don't want to help themselves

It's always the same old crap with Coonman. Complain, complain, complain but do nothing. Not a big surprise he only gets work at a temp agency.

I know everyone always asks, Why haven't you quit yet....

I want to know why they haven't fired you yet? They must really like you and really want to give you all the chances they can.


Have a great day Dave, even though I'm sure you don't want to.


You don't rise to the occasion, you fall to the level of your training.

not sure about IA but everywhere I go in WI people are hiring , signs out , banners , adds on the radio

start looking for a new place

or file the complaint and let osha decide if it is a violation


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
