I Lost My Job!!!!

Recommended Posts

Look, I came to work on time.... I did exactly what the boss told me to do..... I followed all the rules..... never once gave the boss the bird.... Then the first time I ever had a chance to drive one of them there fork lifts..... one little mis-step.... and everyone runs around in circles screaming and shouting..... you'd think I blew the place up or something..... I don't understand it....... I didn't mean to do it....... It was an accident...... It could have happened to anyone......

Happened at MOMAG Unit Eight in the Naval Magazine, on Guam. The Forktruck is a standard 4000 explosive/electric forktruck and the operator was an experienced E-4. The weapon is a 2000 lb MK 65 Quickstrike underwater mine."The situation was very simple: The driver had been loading a flatbed trailer with mines and instead of turning left out the door of the magazine he would position the weapons on the truck which was parked parallel to the loading dock. After loading the last mine, the truck left for the assembly area. The driver was preparing for the next truck and was momentarily distracted by one of the handlers. He claimed that before he could stop, he was already on the way over the edge. Why? inattention to the task at hand and because that he had previously moved hundreds of rounds without incident, his guard was let down. He recalled when he first got his license how deliberate he was with explosives and how with more experience he became faster but not necessarily unsafe. . . Another contributing factor which was not on the explosive incident report was that operators prided themselves on the speed by which they could load/offload trailers. Sometimes their skill and deftness with the fork tines got mixed up with the safety aspects of moving ordnance. Obviously, this changed that. It sometimes takes incidents such as this one to bring home ORM"Cut and pasted an email I recieved using the pic for some ORM(Opperational Risk Mangement) Training tip.EDIT: So with the driver being in the military he still has a job, just ain't drivin' no forklift, no more. Maybe he be peelin' taters :-lol,:-lol:-outtahttp://publish.hometown.aol.com/p3superb/images/675-2n.jpg

The fact that the explosives didn't go off speaks volumes for the QA and professionalism of those handling and building them of course.Obviously designed to be dropped :-rotor
