How to Make Right Hand Turns

Here’s a safety video I felt was important to share for anyone considering a career in trucking. I get other drivers always trying to pass or tailgate me on a daily basis. I’m not sure why anyone would want to put themselves at risk, but they do without any regards to their own safety. 🚫

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to drop a comment. ⤵️

Lock Out Tag Out

Here’s a video of a brief explanation of how to conduct a “Lock-Out,Tag-Out” procedure. If you decide to work in a warehouse and it’s a manufacturing facility, you’ll want to know what a “Lock-Out,Tag-Out” procedure is. 10 times out of 10, a manufacturing plant will have machines that will need to be locked out for preventative maintenance. 🔐

Even if you have no experience as a machine operator, you’ll get brownie points at an interview for mentioning and explaining this procedure. You’ll demonstrate that safety is your number one priority, and you can hit the ground running with minimal training. I’m telling you from my own experience, interviewers love to hear that candidates have extensive knowledge in safety. ✅

Warehouse Safety Tips

Here’s a short video on warehouse safety tips. I used to work in warehouses for 15+ years and did everything from lumping to management. One factor that always got me a job offer was my extensive knowledge in safety. I used to really love doing a walk-through in a warehouse for my interviews because I could point out safety hazards immediately. If a fire extinguisher or a exit was blocked, I would mention that. 🧯

If you’re interested in getting into the warehouse industry, I highly recommend learning about OSHA regulations and best safe practices. Safety will get you into a leadership position and possibly even a safety coordinator position if you’re willing to get certified. Keep in mind safety is the number one priority in any warehouse, and once management recognizes you understand this, they will put you as their top candidate. 🚧

Unauthorized Semi-Truck Parking

I was reading an article about a Greyhound bus colliding with a semi-truck on July 12 killing three people and injuring 14 in Highland, Illinois. This was the result of a semi-truck parking on an exit ramp which is unauthorized parking and cannot be used as a rest area. DOT regulations have strict rules that prevent truck drivers from driving past 16 hours or they’ll receive a citation and penalty for breaking this rule. With this rule in place “Over the Road” OTR drivers tend to just pull over on the highway and rest for 8 hours which is illegal. 🚫

Apparently the state of Illinois does not have enough rest areas for truck drivers. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating this accident to determine how they can prevent tragedies like this in the future. Although I’m not an OTR driver, from my personal experience truck rest areas are very difficult to find and can be really spread out making it a hassle for drivers looking to rest, fuel up, and put air in their tires if they need to. 🚛

If you’re a new driver, I recommend improving your time management skills, navigation skills, and organizational skills so you can minimize any possible dangerous situations like this. Know your routes and rest areas along the way. You can utilize apps like “TruckMap” that will provide you with truck routes, rest areas, scale locations, and other features that are useful for truck drivers. I am providing the link to the article for those that want to read it. 📖

“Warehouse Safety”

I was able to find some before and after photos from when I was a warehouse supervisor in 2017. I was hired as a supervisor to improve the poor conditions that plagued this place. I was offered the position for many reasons.

  1. I have over 15 years experience in a warehouse environment.

  2. I have several Business degrees and professional certifications.

  3. I was able to point out multiple safety violations when I was given a walk-through.

  4. I was able to assure the Operations Manager that I could improve the warehouse conditions in 90 days with confidence.

Whatever industry you are in, make it a point to know all aspects that go beyond your job description. Ask your superior that you want to be cross-trained in another department, ask questions about other departments, be curious, learn the machinery used in the warehouse, and most importantly extend your knowledge towards safety. Management favor an employee that have knowledge about safety and OSHA regulations. I pointed out simple safety violations like the fire exits were blocked, fire extinguishers were blocked, and pallets on the second tier needed to be wrapped. Your goal should be able to move up to a management position from an entry level position. Don’t ever be complacent and you should desire career growth.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics in the workplace is important to keep workers safe and healthy. Workplace safety increases employee morale and productivity. I have personally worked for a company that attempted to achieve a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) certification which is a goal to go above and beyond OSHA regulations and creates a safety culture. Some best practices that were implemented were “Be Your Brothers Keeper” and use “Mechanical Assistance” to reduce injuries. Here are seven processes that are implemented to protect workers. These are also great to mention an in interview whether your are applying for a management or entry level position. I can’t stress the importance of demonstrating your knowledge about safety during an interview. Hiring managers are more then likely to consider offering you the position when you have extensive experience and training in safety.

Provide Management Support - A strong commitment by management is critical to the overall success of an ergonomic process. Management should define clear goals and objectives for the ergonomic process, discuss them with their workers, assign responsibilities to designated staff members, and communicate clearly with the workforce.

Involve Workers - A participatory ergonomic approach, where workers are directly involved in worksite assessments, solution development and implementation is the essence of a successful ergonomic process. Workers can: Identify and provide important information about hazards in their workplaces. Assist in the ergonomic process by voicing their concerns and suggestions for reducing exposure to risk factors and by evaluating the changes made as a result of an ergonomic assessment.

Provide Training - Training is an important element in the ergonomic process. It ensures that workers are aware of ergonomics and its benefits, become informed about ergonomics related concerns in the workplace, and understand the importance of reporting early symptoms of MSDs.

Identify Problems - An important step in the ergonomic process is to identify and assess ergonomic problems in the workplace before they result in MSDs.

Encourage Early Reporting of MSD Symptoms - Early reporting can accelerate the job assessment and improvement process, helping to prevent or reduce the progression of symptoms, the development of serious injuries, and subsequent lost-time claims.

Implement Solutions to Control Hazards - There are many possible solutions that can be implemented to reduce, control or eliminate workplace MSDs.

Evaluate Progress - Established evaluation and corrective action procedures are required to periodically assess the effectiveness of the ergonomic process and to ensure its continuous improvement and long-term success. As an ergonomic process is first developing, assessments should include determining whether goals set for the ergonomic process have been met and determining the success of the implemented ergonomic solutions.

💙 ✨ HOW TO USE THE JOBCASE JOB SEARCH TOOL TO FIND A JOB IN A RESTAURANT!! ✨ 💙 🖥 📲

I see a ton of posts from Jobcasers asking for help finding work at a Restaurant near them! 👨‍🍳 🤵 I’d love to share some step by step instructions on how to use the “Jobs” tab on the Jobcase App to find open positions in Hospitality wherever you live! 🇺🇸 ❤️ 🏡 💙

Start by filling out your Jobcase Profile as throughly as you can with your work history, and consider what positions you’d like to work in next. 📄 Then find the Jobcase Job Search Tab, either on the top of your browser page, or the bottom of the App on your phone! 📲💻

Use your previous job titles as the key words in your Job Search, and add your zip code and mileage range as well. 📍That will show you what jobs list those key words in their postings, and where they are located. If you’re looking for Work you can do from home, check the box that says “Remote Work Only”! 🛋 🗺 🧭 💙

Then take the Resume your profile generates for you, and apply to the job listings that look like the best fit, for your past experience and future plans for your career. 🛣 The best way to apply is to explore job postings and apply through those, or go to the website of the Restaurant directly, and submit your information on there. 👩🏻‍💻 If it is a large national chain, like Applebees for example, you could go to their Official Careers Page, find the location where you want to apply with your zip code, and apply to the Restaurant where you would like to work. 🧑🏽‍🍳 🖥 🤵🏼‍♂️

Make sure to always research any job posting, and use context clues to make sure it is a legitimate position and not a scam looking to steal personal information. ‼️💻 The Job Posting should be well edited, with an email address related to the company you’re applying, and they should only ask for personal banking or social security information AFTER you are sure you are employed by a real company, and you have started the job. 🪪🗃 You should never have to buy equipment, provide your credit card or Venmo information, cash any checks for them, or interview in a nonofficial capacity, like over the Telegram App. 💳 Please be careful of scammers and stay vigilant! 💜

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO FIND A RESTAURANT JOB NEAR YOU?!? PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO ASK DOWN BELOW! HAVE YOU USED THE JOBCASE SEARCH TOOL TO APPLY TO JOBS ALREADY?? HOW DID IT GO??
