5 years, an injury free workplace: An what'd ya get?

The scuttlebutt is that the dept. supervisors get big bonuses when their workers go without injuries for a certain length of time. Here's what Bob and his co-workers got...

Gee, uh, thanks?

There is a flip-side too. One year at Christmas, I recall the director at a former job got each employee a lovely Harry and David-type coffee-cake. Do you know people complained??? I don't recall their specific grievance, maybe they just wanted a bonus.


  1. Wow, can they spare it? Sounds about right though, no different in these parts unfortunately.

  2. So this is what the downturn in the economy has caused? Red glass thingie?

    The school gave me a pewter plate when I retired this year after 38 years. It's pretty. Has the school name on it.

    Sound familiar?

    Money is always nice.

  3. The sad part Jean, this happens all the time in a GOOD economy..

  4. So for "only" a year of injury free, what? A kick in the pants? Of course safety is worth it, but come on! BTW, is it a water bottle or?

  5. It's in people's natures to complain. Hey, at least it's something!

  6. I guess you could look at it as "at least it is something" ??

    Some companies don't give anything.
    Congrats on the really good safety stats!!

    Take care,

  7. I was listening to the Stable Scoop radio and thought of you. Near the end of the 36th episode a vet was talking about his recommendations for abscesses.

    Anything that includes whiskey has to be good! :)
