Rounds

Friday, January 5th, 2007

I’m sure most of you are familiar with the idea of security officer having to do rounds during their shift. What you might not know, however, is that most places consist of monitored and unmonitored rounds. There’s usually a system of checkpoints that either have a barcode or a button to be pushed with a special device.
Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but right now the plant is on shutdown so the cleaners are stripping and waxing all of the floors in the building. Tonight there are three areas that are blocked off, yesterday there were four! That means there are buttons I can’t get to, or that I have to go a LONG way out of my way to get to. The other problem is that they move things out of the area they are waxing, and they like to block exits and stairways. It’s not fun to get to a stairway you need to use and find it blocked by a skid, not to mention that I don’t like being at the top of a stairway that is blocked at the bottom. What if there is a fire or something?? They must get things back into place by the end of the night or something because I can’t believe HES isn’t throwing a fit. Well, it’s almost over in any case. We’ll be back to full production on Sunday night or Monday morning.
