It the world today, everyone is short handed and in a rush. This Amazon delivery driver, should have taken the time to use a cart. The box on the bottom shows 34LBS. No telling how much the other box weighs. Additionally, due to the size of the boxes, he cant see where he going and is in danger of a "trip and fall".

I felt sick and called into and tested myself for COVID-19 which I tested positive for and reported it over to all necessary staff like my safety supervisor so this could be passed over to whomever I came into contact last.
I’m now quarantined for a week and will be until I no longer have symptoms or taking medications.

Thank you,

For the Housekeeping safety week, by organizing a station of tools and material against the wall, I have not only mitigated tripping hazards but also increased productivity speeds by having easy and organized access to material and tools at hand. (Below is the after picture)

The reduce pressure backflow preventer is right above the electrical equipment if and when this assembly go's into full discharge it creates a huge electrical issue along with bodily injury hazard. Did not test and had a conversation with the customer.

We work in a copper mine here in Bagdad, AZ. There are many dangers here in the mine. They include raveling of the pit walls, which is when the walls start crumbling and falling onto the mine roads. The heat in the summer here in Arizona can get up to 120 degrees at times. In the bottom of the pit it is actually much hotter with temperatures up around 140 degrees. Hydration is a must. There are many different types of Wildlife in the pit, including Deer, Javelina, Big Horn Sheep, Bear, Mountain Lions, Grey Fox, Bagders and Coyotes. However, the biggest danger is driving with all the Heavy Equipment in the mine. Our trucks are the smallest vehicles out here and are not easily visible by the bigger equipment. Everyone driving in the pit must be Pit Driving Certified, must have a 12 foot buggy whip with flag and light, and must have a radio tuned to the main pit channel. Even with these safety features we are responsible to let the larger equipment know that we are there, our lives depend on it.

There was a duct detector above the ceiling tiles in front of a door that we needed to test. It required a ladder to get up above the ceiling to reach the duct detector. To eliminate the danger of the door being opened while on the ladder we opened the door and had one tech hold the door while watching the ladder while the other tested the duct detector.
