not sure how it affects linehaul..i will be sure and ask...also they are rolling out here first because they choose a few SC's and those get trained first and then they bring in fos's fom's etc. from other SC'S to train at our SC...you will still have to carry DR'S and have them signd like always...(legal issue) you just go back to your truck and type their name into the handheld...only thing i know about the linehaul side is you will type your equipment numbers in and there will be a barcode at the gate of each SC...you will scan those when you arrive/depart..the breaks you do not have to enter on the handheld..only your lunch...you choose the option to take lunch and it starts a timer and after 30 it has an alarm that starts beeping..while on your lunch the handhelds shutsdown so you can not communicate nor can dispatch communicate with you during the 30 min
[/quote]So, I will have to stop taking hour-long lunches??
No...it just means you will be required to take your hour lunch in thirty minute increments.
Once the first thirty is up just reset the timer...and at the next alarm your hour is up...
Unless you want to take the hour (or whatever one wishes to take) in separate stages...but evidently it must be done half hour at a time....per new company policy.
Whew!....now that was funny!...
OK...much better now...please carry on...as I have regained my rodent composure.
I'm OK...really...its alright now.
(I think I peed my pants)...nope!...just spilled beer.
Sometimes I crack me up!
