Outage CRUD
« on: Oct 15, 2009, 10:57 »
The infamous Outage CRUD, aka cold, flu, stomach bug, Swine Flu, or H1N1.

I haven’t seen any statistics yet on whether the CRUD has been worse this outage season or not, but it seems worse. More people have been calling in sick then I remember from past outages. I didn’t catch it the last two or three, but I got hammered for three days with symptoms this outage. The management has been putting  out H1N1 precautions about staying home if you’re sick----but of course the additional resource personnel (contractors is not PC anymore) are here for the money and most don’t get the option of a paid sick day anyway so they’re coming to work even when feeling bad enough they should call in. (I’m guilty as charged).

So the question is: How bad is the outage CRUD at your site/outage? 
"Never underestimate the power of a Dark Klown"

Darkmatters website is no more, nada, gonzo,  this will get you there, but I can't update it anymore. Maybe nukeworker will host personal sites eventully

Crystal River has cornered the market on outage crud. The bus ride provides an additional breeding ground for germs on top of the added bonus of too short of a sleep cycle due to the extra hour+ spent each day on the bus. There are lots of the walking sick here due to the loss of pay and perdiem that comes from missing even one day.
Oops it is time to head off to catch the bus....

I found I get sick alot less often when I hold my breath in the PCM's

think about it... you step in and put your face less than an inch away from the same spot 1000+ other people have been breathing on all day.

I'd love to see someone culture that some outage.... just to see what grows.

It was tough in the days when we were handing respirators out like candy. The crud seemed to last a lot longer.
