    Interesting Jay. Duke Energy had similar work practices. Daily safety meetings, preflight checklists, pre, mid and post job briefings with all present signing a list to make sure they understood what was going on. It all takes time but accidents frequency has went down. I don't know if it's because of all the meetings or if they just don't do a lot of work because of all the meetings.;)

    He was running off from the day he arrived. He has gone for as long as 4 hrs before, I took the truck and found him by chance the other side of the valley. He was hunting animals. (perhaps a bit of r&r after a few stolen hours of amour)

    That was how it went when I did some work for the railroad as well. Every morning was a meeting between us, the traffic control, our track officer, and the big shot from the RR. Our track officer carried a radio and the engineers would alert him when they were 20 minutes out. If he didn't respond the train was to stop. He always responded though giving us plenty of time and the train dropped down to 20 mph. It was a good experience. I also worked with a company named Arcadis doing an environmental clean up for GoodYear. 3 safety meetings a day. I can't say they were "to safe" , but since they were unfamiliar with our industry I had to spend a lot of time explaining our safety standards. They also tried to make me wear tyvek under my chaps while I was climbing. I presented that it was more dangerous than me possibly take no poison ivy residue home with me.

    Yah for sure. That's the major responsibility if you want to keep a unaltered dog imo. Is insuring it isn't accidentally breeding. If you can do that than why bother snipping em? I snipped the little guys because they were starting to hump stuff. Undesirable feature in a lap dog.

    Well he does piss off, but I've spent all week fencing the garden so that should put paid to that. I believe it's more about the hunt than the #unt that's causing his runaways. You may be right though.

    I think that's fine as long as he isn't wandering off loose like you mentioned he was doing at first. Both of my big fellas are unaltered and they've never caused any accidental pregnancies. I had the same thoughts as you they aren't aggressive, don't hump things/people, and I was worried they'd just get fat and lazy by snipping them. They are about nine and eight respectively so have already lived a good life for big dogs and for mastiff crosses they are in very good shape for their age and have been their whole life. I think not fixing them has helped in that regards. I lol at those contemplating getting 'a' dog. Thunder, tank, horto, and buckler. Now that's a pack!

    I've only done a very short stint on "utility Arb" in the UK but full time lookouts were standard afaik. Safety is taken very seriously on the railway crews.

    Stands for Japan Railroad, a huge company here that manages the railroads, I guess it's everything except for some other company owned subways in large cities. A friend of mine works for some people that JR contracts with to do arborist work along the lines and around stations, keep potential hazards from trees and whatever might be within that category to a minimum, and also to keep things tidy. A huge and constantly going on job throughout the entire country. My friend asked if I would fill in for him for a few days. I'd seen guys working the lines when I was traveling, and it interested me. I showed up to find a three man crew plus two guys from the parent company whose job it is to oversee the operation, particularly safety, not really there to direct the tree work, but to oversee the operation in some official capacity should some question arise within their responsibility. The work goes smooth, the guys are pros, and real pleasant people to associate with, everyone busting A and quite courteous. What really got my attention was the lengths the company goes to so as to ensure safety. There's a checklist that they go through every morning, covering PPE and an array of cautionaries and procedures pertaining to the trains coming through. Aside from having the train schedules on paper, the safety guys have some special gear on their waist that catches some kind of signal when a train is a certain distance away and it sends a warning. Upon which they alert the crew and all activity has to stop and the crew raise their arm to acknowledge and you keep it up until the train passes, or if near a station platform where there is a stop, at least until the train quits moving and then acknowledge again when it gets going again. If the work is where the signal can't reach, a call comes in from a station on the line monitoring the train's location. Certain people are well informed of what is taking place along the line, their duty to attend to it. All the same instructions are gone through every morning, the same as the day before with the same crew, plus any special circumstances. What got me though, is that it's also recorded for verification, should there be some circumstance that calls into question whether if there was a proper announcement or not. At the end of the day, another meeting to briefly discuss the work if needed, and any commentary by anyone is welcomed. Also making sure everyone that is supposed to be there still is. :lol: If there is some physical problem, it's the time to say. Tomorrow's work might be briefly discussed as well. The whole thing seems a no brainer for the crew, I mean going through the same defined routine everyday as is mandated with every crew wherever they are. JR has an excellent safety record with the crews working the lines, and that's a lot of people, especially this time of year. To some extent all these procedures are a cultural thing, how the people grow up to think and what to expect in a work environment, but it occurred to me that some part of that approach might have some use in other places too, I guess I mean by making safety consciousness a routine. I know that the people in the house generally don't have to worry about local and high speed trains come rocking trough their job sites, but I just thought that there might be some value in mentioning the situation. Anyway, for me it was interesting to observe, the manner of the approach where the thinking is that you can't be too safe where hazards are reoccurring. At least one guy full time is on the lookout. :/:

    The customers I have that get most out of their bars and chains is the ones that rotate chains, 5-10 on one bar and rim. By rotating you have even wear. If you run bar with replaceable sprocket it can run 30+ chains if nothing happen. Educating custemers to keep their stuff better makes me happy as I don't have them breathing down my neck often and always comes with a smile.
