More Training at LANL. Dollars well spent, I am sure

From Anonymous:


Attention CCS Employees,

On March 21, 2005, a Master Management Memo went out to the entire work force stating:

"Commencing March 21, 2005, the course Environmental Management System (EMS) Workers Awareness- Initial, EDS#32461, is mandatory for all LANL workers, including subcontractors."

The memo went on to emphasize that this mandatory training was not due until September 31, 2005. Nevertheless, the EMS training plan has been activated in every LANL workers profile, thus putting a big dent on compliance numbers.

If you have not already done so, please take a moment in the next couple days to complete the EMS Workers Awareness Training, Course 32461 at the following URL:

**PLEASE NOTE** Choose Option #1, it is a read and sign 'lecture'.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Nonsense like this just keeps getting worse and worse with each passing month.
This memo is a perfect example of the typical "damn the staff's time, I'll
just cover-my-ass" attitude that is so prevalent within LANL management.

This class is for EMS workers. It's in the title of the course name! I'm
not an EMS worker, so I plan on ignoring it. If it is, indeed, in the
compliance records for all CCS workers, I suggest CCS management remove it
from these records, rather than waste the time of their staff in a totally
inane "check-off" compliance action.
