What kind of BS is this?

We got an email this morning from the owner... who just happens to be going on vacation for the next week and a half.

So you know...

We are putting some cameras into the office, warehouse and exterior of the building to test out video capabilities on the web for all our facilities.

The goal is two-fold. First, we would like to see all facilities - especially will-call areas. This would be on screens in the home office as well as access on the web. Secondly, we would like to integrate them into a comprehensive security system.

Overall, we are looking to connect ourselves up so we can see when constraints occur - busy will-call areas, trucks in the dock, etc. as well as protect the company assets.

So it might feel weird to see cameras going up but this is the easiest place to test capabilities.

This has been a task that has been on my goal list for quite a while and I think you will eventually find helpful assuming we are able to accomplish what we have set out to do.


WTF!?

Big Brother..... I guess as long as you have nothing to worry about all is good, just turn your monitor away so they dont see you surfing on CLSB, or they will install tracking software in IT dept next.. You guys have a theft issues going on, or you been stunting in the loading dock area again?




j/k good luck & Carry on!!

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I'm in good with the IT lady no worries about that at all. I completely understand them wanting cameras in the will call areas and in the warehouse and dock ares. But to have them in the office watching us just makes everything uneasy up here.

i can understand both sides of the coin.

just do your job and you'll be fine.

having a remote viewing access for productivity viewing and security has always been a benefit.

It'll be odd at first but as long as you do your job you should be ok.

I know some pd's are talking about, if they dont already have, cameras inside the squad car that record what the officer is doing inside the vehicle 24/7.....I wouldnt be too keen on that. I don't want someone viewing a tape of me singing in the car or picking my nose!

Commuter locomotives have cameras on both the outside and inside. Newer freight locomotives have them on only the outside. When someone has to watch these videos, it is never a pretty sight.

Dont they have a system in there where if the engineer doesnt do anything for a few minutes a little alarm goes off.. and they have to hit the "no it's ok, i am still here" button within like 10 seconds or the train automatically hits the brakes?
I guess that's the next best nanny system thing to a camera... maybe better in some aspects (while video of your conductor sleeping might be funny... I suppose it could also be potentially dangerous.. right?) -- at least this thing tries to keep em awake

Most engines have am alerter in them to keep the crew awake. FWIW, I have never slept on an engine.

The alerters work on out main line, but are disengauged when we are on foreign railroads (bnsf, csx, ihb, ect). Then you put a cigarette in your hand, nap, and wake when it burns your fingers. True story.

eve, if you have any real questions about this issue from a business stand point, a personal stand point, privacy invasion in the work place.

if you like (since i owe you big time) call me anytime to chat. hopefully i can ease your mind and also make sure you don't feel a victim from something you might not know about cameras in the work place.

it just makes one feel less appreciated. we all work our asses off and we get our work done. it was such a relaxed environment and now we feel more like prisoners, we can't go have the 2 minute conversation to relieve ourselves from feeling like a robot.

and it has voice recordings. so yea, everyone is super paranoid. just the air in the entire building changed today.

i guess it is what it is.

We just got done having new cameras installed at work. They put up a total of sixteen new cameras and all can be veiwed from the web. The building now has two cameras on every corner leaving no area unconvered. In addition to the exterior whe have four cameras in the shop. One in every corner. Plus three cameras up front in the office and one in the back store-room. These along with the four exsisting camera make a total of twenty watching us at all times. It was a little wierd when they first went up but if you just do your job like your supposed to then you have nothing to worry about. The boss is just a little anal about things. His wife has him convinced that everyone that works for him is stealing things and wasting time.
