I re-organized the network cables, power cords and switch for the Xerox Plotter so cables and power cords are not running across the walkway.

There was daisy change of surge protectors going to the Xerox printer. Not a good idea; it's clean up now. So no more Surge protector daisy chain.

024893EETD62While the steps are being built in front of B90, the construction workers have taped off the area we used to use, to walk to the shuttle stop.
We would walk behind the power poles. Now we are forced to walk in front of them and having to cross over the electrical cords plugged into the cars.
This is a major tripping hazard. We either have to be careful about not tripping, or having to go around the parked cars, out into the roadway.
Either way is dangerous.
Can the construction workers move the tape?
Or, speed up completing the steps.
I mentioned this to Steve Greenberg and he gave me the Safety Card.

-At the start of the event I took the initiative to close off the fixed trash barrels around the patio and directed participants to use the waste diversion that were provided by the Sustainable Berkeley Lab booth brought out. Many staff were engaged in conversations with sustainability experts about waste diversion. JGI diverted more than 75% of the waste into compost or recycle bins instead of into landfill.

340101EHS122The original EBMUD invoice (dated 3/20/13) was for $15,712.60. I challenged this amount and was able to reduce the invoice to $3,566.06 by noting incorrect billing practices and charges for testing and monitoring which were not performed by EBMUD.

I was able to save the Lab $12,146.54 in charges.

16317OPS177Our new suite of cubicles in 64-240 have 67" high walls that you cannot see around. This was posing a collision danger for folks entering and exiting the suite. I researched corner safety mirrors online. I found one with the right size and specs and ordered it. I then placed a work request to have it installed in the top corner of the ceiling above the blind corner. It's very effective for letting people see around the corners to avoid collision.true

I also customized the pop-up messages about taking a moment to be aware of your shoulder or wrist position, etc., to messages I would actually read/pay attention to. I like it already! Really encourages me to take those ergo breaks, and be aware of my body position - in order to prevent injury/repetitive stress issues.true

001688ALS18An ALS manager was concerned about a facility employee working too high on a ladder. Being one of the safety staff at the ALS I went to speak with this fellow about the concern. Explaining the situation and knowing nothing about ladder training I asked the facility worker to teach me how to work safely on a ladder. Also what types of ladders he uses and what the height restrictions required are for the variety of tasks he performs daily.
My approach was well received and he provided information that was helpful in understanding that he was in fact following the correct procedures and was working safely within the height limits of the ladder he was using. He said it was the right thing to do to “stop work” and have a discussion about ladder safety. I confirmed with his supervisor that we had the conversation and the supervisor also affirmed that his employee is a cautious person who takes safety seriously and plans carefully before doing any work.
During our monthly ALS safety meeting Mike Martin presented me with the card saying my efforts to resolve the issue were worthy of receiving the “safe-ing the day!” recognition. Safety is our number one priority, so I’m assuming it won’t be long before I pass the card on to another person working at ALS.
