  • Membership Vote - New Forum

    All YardLimit.com members are asked to vote 'Yes' or 'No' for the addition of a forum entitled "Railroad Safety." The forum will be in the 'On Duty' section, directly below "The Yard Office."

    We all work under the same governmental regulations. Safety issues are of the utmost importance to all of us, regardless of the carrier. By centralizing all safety issues under a single forum, those important matters will become much easier to access and follow by our membership.

    The voting will take place over the next 30 days. The results will be announced on April 24, 2011. <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
    102
    Yes
    86.27%

    No

    The poll is expired.

    NS should not require warm up exercises. We get enough exercise jumping to conclusions, flying off the handle, running down our bosses,knifing friends in the back, dodging responsibility and pushing our luck.

        Comedy will be moved to the Comedy Forum. Politics will be deleted and the poster will be penalized. Politics are for the Current Events Forum only.

          sounds good, however it will probably get like my safety committee has gotten lately. fights over what is considered safety items and what is not.

            As I said a few years ago.
            If you can get hurt by it, its a safety thing. So, EVERYTHING!
            I see the "moron meter" pegged you! It never fails...EVER!

              Well last meeting we were informed of several issues that upper management did NOT want to ever see again on our safety meeting minutes due to being termed not safety committee items. which all of them were issues that involved safety in some sort of fashion. and most of them had actually been fixed.

                I'm in. Discussions about safety from different crafts and roads without the carriers propaganda, great idea.

                    I reported ALL switches that I handled a few days ago , in a yard I haven't worked in quite a few years, as being "HARD TO HANDLE". Come Monday they will not be lined by me ever again until something is done!!!! I WAS promised by the YDM that the switches would be taken care of in a week or two!!!! Surprise, I'll need some asistance at each of these switches come next Monday!!!

                      A new forum sounds like a good idea. It'll help put all the safety comments on the various threads into one easy to find place. I vote yes.

                        You have to vote in the poll at the top of this thread, if you want it counted.

                            All postings by BadOrderKing are public information, works of fiction, sometimes resembling the rants of a madman and in no way should be construed to represent the positions, views, or thoughts of any particular railroad carrier. No one listens to him anyway.

                              I voted NO too.... Reason? Because it sound like some more "Committee" bull sh*t to me. Anything that requires a committee to get it accomplished sounds to much like government. And we all know how well that works.
