Stools FSS and FSM 5.2020

Sit stand stools; it has been some time that the Union had argued that the Service should employ more sit stand stools in all prep stations at the FSS and AFSM. The Union was successful some time ago that there is a need for stools in areas that requires an employee to stand without movement. Such prolong standing in one spot can cause health problems for employees in their back, legs and knees. To offset these ailments the NIOSH-National Institute Occupational Safety and Health informed the Service of potential problems associated with prolong standing and a need to have employees lean to take the pressure off their legs. Finally, after many discussions the Service agreed to purchase 25 sit stand stools to be employed in each prep stations at the FSS and Flat Sorter machines. Special thanks to all stewards for their help in securing the additional stools.
