That's a good post, mostly, but I don't agree at all with the first part as pallet jacks and hand trucks have traditionally been owned by the companies there is no reason to change that.... and the part about management not having any responsibility for them because you take them out on the street....I take my truck out on the street too and if I damage it, they would investigate and do whatever they felt they needed to do, same thing with pallet jacks, company property so the company should also keep track of it.....Oh and by the way I have found tools in my truck more than once after it came out of a shop..Know alot of mechanics, carpenters, electrician, plumbers, and HVAC tech that have to buy there own tools. The one mechanic I know has over $30K wrapped up in tools
Why not. People have more respect and responsible when they are tied to an item financially..How many wrench's to you find in you truck when it come back from the shop. 8yrs and have yet to find one
Why should management be responsible??? There not the one taking them on the street. It's like saying management is responsible for the tractor trailer you are driving.
I have pull 3 jack off this year at your place. I done doing it. If your drivers are to lazy to back in the dock and pull off there jack, I'm sure there on OT by then, then so am I. My city drivers thank you for the extra equipment.
Now that's funny....You are saying you have no management so who would I tell???
Accountable....Really. I seen city driver not enter hazmat details and the load come into the FAC without placards. I sure no ones held accountable for that....
If you call someone out they going crying to HR or the union in your case and say they are being bullied. The problem today is the management is to afraid to hold someone accountable and driver have no self pride in the job
