What does your workplace look like today?

Recommended Posts

It's pretty clean compared to normal

My desk is a bit messy, but this is the view when I turn around.

I just noticed this right outside as well. The photo isn't great, as it's just an old phone, though a flyscreen, and the glare is bad, but that nest wasn't there yesterday. I wondered why they were noisier than normal today.

yeah a lot of people do that. I do too sometimes when someone nearby is on a call and wearing headphones they don't realise how loud they're talking 😡

You should, Japanese style toilets are awesome. At least yours have English labels - it's much more a lottery in Japanese.

It's a work in progress. I get one WFH day a week.  Yes, that's a serving hatch in the wall, no we don't have ducks on the wall, we may or may not live next to Hyacinth Bucket though. :lol:

Yep I’m not “allowed” and then if I was allowed I’d have to fill out a JSEA and obtain a Cold Work Clearance and a Hot Work Clearance with the appropriate standby man. 
 

Not really worth it sorry 😐

My workplace today featured a newly arrived 400kg saltwater croc, a vet appointment for a frill-necked lizard and feeding the venomous snakes.

Same ..... nearly.  I operate a home office out of a granny flat in my backyard.  Just waiting for the red belly sunning himself at my back door to stop smiling at me and move on so I can go out and have some lunch.

Unfortunately with the move to FWoW seating, work has to accommodate the lowest common denominator, which is laptops that can't support a wireless mouse, so every desk has the wired mouse. There's probably also the issue of mice going missing if they weren't attached to something.

There's even a bloody keyboard supplied, but I refrain from touching that.

We haven't quite gone that far yet but some s/w has been loaded that sends up alarms if we plug in any kind of USB drive and will result in you reconsidering your career options!

Just when I started here, lots of folks were bemoaning the fact that IT had cleaned all the laptops of the program that wiggles your mouse to keep you active in Skype. :lol:

This is why the building industry is farked these days. Our weekly progress meeting gets taken up by the HSE section for 75% of the meeting, and progress and issues for probably 10%. Talking shit about replacing toilet paper and soap and why it goes so fast - they don't believe me the Indian labour take it home or sell it. Then I get told by the Consultant I need to train them to wash their hands and not steal stuff...WTF! I'm not their mother.

Oh...and those cigarette buts that aren't put in the bins make the place untidy. Or, I need to put a Work Instruction up and how to use a Bench Drill. Fark off.

Sorry... had to let it out. Easy being a Consultant telling people what to do and making reports for a living - you know, not having to actually do anything or contribute to the project. Having Contractors spend money on shit they don't need or make any money from.

One more project and its time to give it away.

LOL.  I watched a movie the other night, complicated story, but a Frenchwoman encountering a toilet that played Mozart and squirted her in the face as she was getting too curious was priceless.

So true, when I worked in the LNG industry, the amount of bullshit we had to listen too before we actually did something meaningful was crazy.  
 

then when the guys needed to do a simple 5 minute job, it could take 3-4 days to actually get a permit to enable them to start.

I was a compliance officer at one stage. I hated the job. I could see what needed to be done by the guys on the tools, but there were so many impediments in their way it was a joke. Some are worth-while, if they get you home alive, but I remember an experience when we had an auditor come in to a work-site one day. Everything went great, until they got to the vehicle and pinged us for it being dirty.

FFS. Brisbane was at its highest water restrictions in my lifetime. We had a policy not to waste water washing vehicles.

We've had $5k jobs that have been costed at $20k due to the induction training courses we've had to do to get on site. And that's just to put a card into a piece of equipment in the comms room on the LNG site. Why do you have to go through a 4 day induction to do a 15 minute job inside a sealed room?

I’ve often wondered, are you actually allowed to take shoes off in the gym? Our gym says on the door that shows must be worn.  Where does one stand if they take them off and drop some weights on their foot crushing toes

Unless they have Steele capped sneakers I could never see the point of them claiming this argument. I'd often deadlift in socks.

As More said unless you have steel caps on a bit of fabric is not going to protect. 

Feet need to freedom to work without the controlling nature of a shoe.  

Gyms have some stupid rules and this is one of them.  The other is no towel no training.  I have spoken to manager many times that a towel gets sweaty and then you go and wipe a piece of equipment with sweaty towel.  Most gyms have wet wipes now.

Our gym has wet wipes, pitty a whole lot of users have their heads to far up their arse to be considerate to others and actually use them

the other thing that shits me is some will be using a machine or bench and put their towel on another bit of equipment, but then spend ten minutes on their phone, I took a towel off the other week and used a machine. Nearly got my head kicked in 😂😂😂
