As a contractor at the Bayway refinery, a safe and profitable Conoco, makes me safe and profitable. This is why I believe that Conoco Phillips should look into the ability of the Bayway Refinery Maintenance Manager, Jim Smith, to effectively manage.
1. Many complaints were sent about icy walkways.
Reply: Walk like penguins.(not joking)
Someone slips and breaks ankle.
Reply: He failed to follow proper walking procedures.
2. Many things go unrepaired despite good catch reports.
3. It is rumored that the Isomerization pump that failed and caused a fire in 2008 needed to be replaced and is well documented before the fire.
4. Workers are forced to eat break on the units, possibly opening up an OSHA complaint.
5. Wages have been cut, lowering morale, creating disinterest, anger, lack of focus, and causing the highest skilled workers to seek employment elsewhere.
6. Tuesday,9-20-2011, he sent home hundreds of workers for two days, some for longer because of two hand injuries. Men and women who are already unhappy at their job, who followed all the safety rules, were fined for something out of their control. An excellent mechanic quit his job because of this.
7. Thursday 9-22-2011, Jim Smith held four 2 hour meetings to reprimand hundreds of contractors employees. He came across as unstable.
8. Mr. Smiths lack of preventive maintenance and people skills will eventually cost Conoco. The unstable atmosphere he has created cannot be a formula for safety and productivity.
