I hate having to get up and drive to Neederland every morning. Still getting per diem and living at home makes the drive a little easier though.

i hate trying to justify, in a politically correct way, why someone slipped and fell on a perfectly good side walk. i really want to say , "rectal craniumitis" but have to stick with "lack of situational awareness" or some like that.

i hit myself in the knee with my car door when i tried to close it this morning... mishap

i rolled my ankle when i stepped on a pebble on the sidewalk... mishap

I stepped off the loading dock while i was talking on the phone... mishap

and the winner this week... I went to the clinic because i was bitten by an insect... a MOSQUITO... paperwork!

On call 24/7 with no scheduled time off and a Ridiculous attendance policy to go with it. Take three days off on the weekend and you get an attendance charge.

This is the result of the " you must report anything" culture these days

Yea, but I'd expect most people to use some common sense although I see that it is not uncommon for the office workers to report more on the job injuries than rig workers...

I got a hernia on a job out of town. I had a few more days till I came home. I toughed it out and had surgery once back home. Didnt claim it was work related.

Thats prettty extreme dude, just what I would expect form you.

The stuff I see is usually RSI. Some person that has been using computers one day decides "my wrist hurts" and goes to the doctor.

They say "it started at work" and BOOM now it's an on the job injury. That guy was a religous ideologist though, and I'm glad he is gone.

I have CTS too, but when I went to see the doctor I didn't say it was my jobs fault. It's not, its from years of computer use at differnt jobs and being a carpenter before that.

I wadded up a ball of rags and placed it over the bulge. I wrapped duct tape around to apply pressure. I quickly got tired of pushing a bulge of intestines the size of a tennis ball back into place and I know I could damage the intestines by lack of blood flow if they stayed bulged through the stomach muscles. It was a Gov contract and I didnt want to harm our chances with getting it again the next year

Common sense requires common people. We don't have any of those anymore.

Seriously. Every safety meeting is about reporting the smallest . And they wonder why rates have sky rocketed the last 10 years. Years go I wore a glove out the gate because I needed stitches on my hand. These days a paper cut gets reported. Im not kidding about the paper cut. Mosquito bites and ant bites also
