Had our annual comapny meeting yesterday, policy change.
MY company has a meeting for all employees every Spring. In this meeting we go over the company policies and handbook among other things.
I posted a thread last year about this when the safety manager really got on the soap box about weapons at work.
Well this year there was no mention of it, we all had to sign a piece of paper...again....stating that we will comply with all the company policies contained in the "revised" employee handbook.
I did more than a skimming through it, but not quite a detailed word by word reading, and found no mention anywhere about weapons of any sort. :image035:
Now I am on fairly good terms with the safety manager, and I was tempted to point out that there should be mention of not bringing or having any illegal weapons (since 50% of the employees have tools or have access to, that could certainly be considered weapons - knives, clubs, hatchets, axes...) but decided against it.
This year her lecture was focused on Violence in the Workplace, and was really disappointed when she stated that as observers we are not to get involved, just call 911. That voice in my head immediately said "When seconds count, the police are minuets away".
Another employee had asked if someone started hitting them, and they hit back in defense, would they get fired? "That is a possibility." :ticking: I would hope that there would be some sort of investigation into that.
I wonder if I should write out a letter of resignation and keep it with me that just needs a date and signature in the event of a SD shooting. Kind of a "Jump off the cliff before I get pushed" sort of thing.
