    I have a story of a site supervisor that was feed-up with people just signing the JSA without reading it, so...

    One day he gathers his crew around the normal morning toolbox circle to talk about the days work, while the JSA is passed around to read and sign. Once everyone has signed on to the JSA he leads his crew around the corner to a shipping container used to store small parts for the work (valves, bolts, those type of things). Once inside the supervisor stands in the doorway, blocking their escape...
    He pulls the JSA back out, hands it to one of the crew and asks him to start reading the tasks details "again"...

    "All crew will report to the parts container to collect tools, equipment, parts for the days work; Hazards.... / Controls...."

    Next line "Once inside the container all crew will immediately remove their clothes; Hazards - slips/trips/falls.... / Controls...."

    ..."Once all crew are naked they shall be requi.... :scream:"

    After that day no-one on his crew would sign any JSA without first reading the entire thing!

    In response to an absence of a sense of humour and censorship there will be no more posts from me on the Frivoulous Friday thread.Andrew

    Don't let the earnest wear you down mate, we'll bombard them with humour and until they bloody well laugh and get the point of this thread.

    Here's an interesting story where an employer introduced a facial recognition programme under the guise of 'health and safety', without appropriate engagement or consultation, and with the underlying agenda to crack down on cheating on time sheets. The employer fired a worker who refused the facial recognition scan when the employer could / would not answer questions about how it was used, how it actually linked with safety on site, and what was going to be done with the data.
