I work for a company, and I have not been provided a radio but the site supervisor has been.  Our boss says we can never split up.  Fine but what if I need to radio for help cause my supervisor is down and I am pinned or cut off from them.  Not that is going to help since our repeater to communicate with our companies other locations is still down.


I told my supervisor and he told me to tell our boss.  This boss has gotten on me for calling out other safety concerns in the past saying I am going to compromise their contract... 


Obviously I am looking for new employment but I shouldn't come home worrying about being fired for raising a concern about my safety!

Bbecker working for a company that does not take your safety concerns is never fun. I know been there done that and bought a hat or two. Our hand held radioes do not work the greatest but we make due with what we have. Good luck on your situation and always always watch your six.


Bad stuff happens to good people, handle it and overcome.
My motto for life:
Let go and let GOD,
Only HE can control everything.

Your supervisor should be communicating with the boss. Carry a cell phone. Sounds like your supervior fears the owner. Seek other employment.

The key to personal safety and protection is to have a plan in place in case of an emergency. I would also suggest practicing situational awareness. Bump gudercop and uncledennis1, watch your six and find new employment ASAP.

 I know exactly where your coming from. I currently work part time for a company just like that. Safety is the furthest part from their minds. All you can do is pray that nothing happens. But I would still record somehow all the safety problems on a notepad. Good luck looking elsewhere for employmeny. Its tuff out there!


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....
