So, where is everyone these days, at home, still in the office, stranded somewhere?

Get the feeling a hell of a lot of box sets will be consumed and games played..

I'm trying to get IL2 configured again and playing a bit of CoD_WarZone...

At home I'm playing a bit of Kerbal Space Program, but still have to go to work.
Luckily most people are staying home, however this good weather is tempting the muppets out to the coast, where they meet me.

im still working

in a company that pretty much disregards health and safety laws as they see fit.
A lot of machines 50 years old have only just had safety guards fitted, only 2 years ago started obeying noise at work regs
(mostly because i claimed against them)

i think im pretty fucked as far as catching covid goes, absolutely no chance of staying 6 feet apart.
A very few face masks have been handed out, dont fit well, no hand sanitizer in site, fumes are so bad i wouldn't know
if my sore throat was normal or covid.

not just yet, on the cards though.

hope you feel guilty about the knife kills you had on me,
couldnt hear you behind because i was at the very first stages of noise induced hearing loss although i had no idea at the time.

lol, no nihl is a very slow and long process and truly had no idea how bad my hearing had become until my first test.

just to give you a quick idea, the last 3 or 4 bands of a graphic equalizer do nothing at all :eek:

consultant told me i should have had hearing aids at least 5 years before i got them so yeh, ya guilty of abusing my piss poor hearing :P :P :P

If you're working in a loud environment then hearing tests should be yearly, do you not get any sort of hearing protection?

yup, should have been given ppe, should had annual hearing tests, should have had ppe that fitted properly ect

we were told the noise levels were within limits and they stuck to that for DECADES, their sound meter was "faulty" or tampered with, take your pick.

now we have the correct ppe and annual hearing tests.

Bastards nearly got away with it, unfortunately for them i had done nothing in my personal life or had medical history to cause the hearing loss
i now have.
