    Re: Shots for Drain guys

    I remember one of my safety classes, talked about it being an OSHA requirement about getting certain types of shots. Its the same shots medical personal get since we are working with a bio-hazard just like the medical personal.

    Also was explained how our workmen's comp is one of the most expensive out there since we deal with many dangers of different trades. ( Confined space, heights, explosive, fire, bio, heavy lifting, rotating machinery)

      The 2 main things I point out to new jet operators are, confined space monoxide poisoning (speaking from experience) and mist masks to prevent bad bacteria entering the lungs. When the Jetter is working in fresh raw sewerage it can give off a heavy mist made up of a cocktail of germs!

      There is also a theory that is backed up by animal workers at the zoo etc, that is if you work in sewerage with your bare hands, your fingernails grow quicker. The poo acts as a fertilizer for your nails!

            Last year i took a cap off a stack and it was clogged with muck buildup right there. As soon as i went to put the cap back on the clog blew all over my face...Yes i swallowed some and i was nasty...I had to go right to the hospital. They pumped my stomache. I had to get HIV, and some other shot i never heard of. I was current on my Tetnus, Hep shots, and flu shot. I was scared to death. Nothing came of it, but thank god i had my shots!!!!
