Do you see the job as a joke? Do you think anyone could be a safety guy for a general contractor? Do they do anything worthwhile?
Safety guys sees something unsafe and his response is taking a picture? That is a useless piece of crap.chewy said:They sent the boss an email of a picture of myself with rebar touching both sides of my head as I was looking down a hole, my helmet in my hand, crane in the background with about 2t of rebar being lifted... the safety guy was the cranes dogman and snapped the pic of me. I replied to our boss and CCed the original sender with something to the effect of saying thankyou for bringing the unsafe lifting practices including no tagline and lifting above our mens heads to my attention, I will inform the GC this is unacceptable.
Well said.:thumbsup:90% of the time their a friend/family. 99% of the time they will ignore gross violations on the GCs part all while harassing you about glasses. All in all. Useless

They must have quotas to hit, they tend to just snap pics and send them to the bosses now.Safety guys sees something unsafe and his response is taking a picture? That is a useless piece of crap.
Did you get written up or something?Do you see the job as a joke? Do you think anyone could be a safety guy for a general contractor? Do they do anything worthwhile?
Yea the first place I worked the safety guy would take pics all over the place give them to us and let us play where is it so we could fix it.They must have quotas to hit, they tend to just snap pics and send them to the bosses now.
The safety guy I talked about in the last post is the same one that when I asked about a respirator for cleaning a blood, urine, formaldehyde, medical waste filled trap disnt want to get me one because "You'll scare the other workers, a half mask will already scare them." I fought for 6 months to get that thing and was just about to call OSHA when I finally got it.Give me a safety guy who has worked in the field as a tradesman and has an interest in actually working with guys to see that a goal is accomplished safely, and I will welcome the input.
More often than not they're just egg-heads who spend all their time in obscure classes, have very little practical knowledge, invent hazards where none exist, ignore hazards that do exist, have no idea what the workers are trying to achieve and don't care, and like to throw their weight around to justify their half-assed job. I really hate those safety guys.
we have a three strike policy, first verbal, second written, third off project.Did you get written up or something?
Guilty as chargedOur safety guy is a complete joke.
I was told he is there because we get lower insurance rates, as long as we have a "safety guy".
