Unless my wife can talk me out of it I'm 80% sure I'm going to quit this job. I'm somewhat hesitant too cause I hit 10 years with this company in July = more vacation. They've had an issue with production over safety for quite sometime now, this led to a mass exodus of talent. Now that they are struggling with not having enough experienced people they are saying, oh no we are safety 1st. Yet their actions still say production over safety. They killed 2 people a few months ago, now they are wanting me to go to a meeting to discuss knocking a plug out of a system with a 2x4. This plug in the line is at the bottom of a vessel which contains what we call high boilers. They are very reactive and catch fire easily when exposed to humidity or any moisture. We cannot verify weather there is any liquid high boilers above this plug. Yet they want one of my people to stand under it in a Chemical suit and hammmer at this plug. ****ing crazy idiots!!!

I know a way to check if there is liquid above the plug but they haven't deemed it necessary to ask me.

If you stay there you can possibly save someone's life, and you could point out the issues until you get fired. If that happens, you can go after them for whistleblower retaliation. Win win either way.

I'm the one that has to insist that they follow our SOPs, they keep violating safety related requirements if it involves how many people are required to perform a task. Management acts as if they didn't know about these requirements and only acknowledge them when I state that "such and such SOP requires 2 people for this task". They'll act as if they didn't know that, but they do!!

Another thing that's really pissed me off is that they are bringing a supervisor in from another area whose position has been eliminated. They are placing him over me when I have better qualifications and experience in this position.

Stay in a job where safety doesn’t matter to get a little more vacation?

If there were a fatality and questions were asked... would you be the one thrown under the bus as the scapegoat? Document, document, document all actions until you leave.

Highlighted above... been there before and it sucks.

I know!!! I want to leave, but I like the people who are left that I work with. But they are generally much less experienced in this area. Now if they bring their yes man supervisor in I'll probably be silenced. I'm also almost 59, so looking for another job in the fields I'm experienced in would require me to move and may be difficult to get hired on. Many people here have left and gone to TVA or Oakridge. At 59 though I don't know that they even consider me.

Maybe I'll just retire early and volunteer with the VA. The house is paid for and I have 0 debt, we can survive on mine and my wifes military retirement, she also still works for SSA. So I just don't know 100% what to do right now, I don't want my emotions make me come to a decision. I have to wait till I'm not pissed off and decide.


Edit: They also just gave me a 12% pay raise.
