PMG Brennan addresses safety, other matters in new video

Featured Video Play Icon
In her latest “Business Focus” video, Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan urges employees to stay safe during hot weather.

She reminds everyone to complete required safety training, which includes guidance on staying cool and tips on recognizing signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

“Building awareness and guarding against heat-related illnesses ensures that we all understand the signs and symptoms,” she says.

On the public policy front, Brennan discusses efforts by the administration to return USPS to a sustainable business model.

“The Postal Service welcomes the interest and engagement from the administration in addressing our financial situation. However, we will be thoughtful and considerate about any potential suggestions to fix our broken business model,” she says.

Any recommendations must include all stakeholders in a transparent review process that considers the effects on consumers and businesses, Brennan says, adding that Congress has the ultimate responsibility for establishing a more effective business model for USPS.

Additionally, Brennan notes the Postal Service is continuing to seek immediate reforms, including greater pricing flexibility.

Other topics addressed in the video include the organization’s improved system to measure its service performance and the next quarterly financial report, slated for release Aug. 9.

The famous words – “YOUR SAFETY MATTERS”
I guess if you say it enough – you start to believe it.
Maybe she needs to start holding her supervisors accountable – because to them, they could care less about safety. This includes the union for employees. How about making management accountable for their actions instead of worrying about all your worthless conferences.

Last holiday season, Ms. Brennan mandated no street time for mail carriers after 7 pm citing it’s unsafe, prompted by an apparent mail carrier working until the wee hours in the morning in very cold and difficult condition on the east coast. Wonder how much of that was to save overtime and pushing carriers to the limit, to the breaking point with the increase in parcels, yet not allowing extra street time. If Ms. Brennan could curtail mail in the winter times, why not in the summer heat when someone in California already died in a 117 degree no A/C… Read more »

It is not the mail they are worried about getting out. It is all about the amazon parcels. Our POOM stated that Sunday and holidays (amazon) is more important than the operation of the local post office six days a week Last winter they had us come back at a certain time if the route was not finished – the mail was placed on hold – the certain good ole boys took the amazon parcels out – they all had to be delivered that day – not getting back sometimes until 10 pm. If you haven’t noticed it by now,… Read more »

cut cost by cutting back on the top level, way to many chiefs not enough actual workers who touch the mail. safety does not matter to supervisors until a serious accident happens on their shift, speed is crucial to them it is all about numbers.
