Blair Hawkins' Work Journal
Fri 7-1-2016. Kerchof steam tunnel. All cuts made. All 8 sleeves were a challenge and needed cleanup. Some pipe sections still bolted down. For summer shutdown, the non-asbestos "fart rock" black styrofoam insulation was removed. New dumpster has arrived. Old dumpster needed a bobcat bucket to lift and push the warped door shut.
Leander McCormick Observatory 1883 is open to the public 1st & 3rd Friday evenings. Store lead paint waste and blue barrel.
For Friday Start 6 am.
(1) Kerchoff cut pipes.
(2) Ask plumber Bruce to mark out the glovebag needed this summer.
(4) Clean up 2 possibly up to 8 spots where the pipe comes through a sleeve.
(5) Remove Bruce's glovebag.
(7) If new dumpster, begin hauling pipe.
(8) 2 pm pick up blue barrel and waste. Observatory open tonight.
(9) End of workday 2:30 pm.
Thu 6-30-2016. Kerchoff steam tunnel. Remove 2 decommissioned lines with asbestos pipe insulation total 550 linear feet.
Private Clinics 2570B and 2445. Three stained ceiling tiles to be replaced. Spray-on asbestos above drop ceiling.
McCormick Observatory. We now have 3 full blue barrels in our storage.
Wed 6-29-2016. Kerchof steam tunnel. Upon arrival we saw nobody. As they came from farther down the line, I was able to count 6 workers as posted at the Kerchof entry. All glovebags are removed. Next phase: cut pipe into sections and lift out the manhole into van into a new empty asbestos dumpster.
McCormick Observatory. Pick up waste and the blue barrel.
Tue 6-28-2016. Back to Kerchof steam tunnel. My initial measurements and estimate 4-4-2016 Week 26 seem reasonable. I calibrated my air monitor at the plumbers' shop. Today our main entry is JPA-Emmet manhole. Initially the Kerchof door with the notice remained locked so the outsider would think the tunnel is unoccupied. Also the occupants were unable to exit this way. In the open-door photo the deadbolt is locked open so the wind can't blow the door shut and locked. The tag does not show the number of entrants expected in the confined space.
McCormick Observatory. Store and dispose of contaminated lead paint debris in blue barrels.
Mon 6-27-2016. Carruthers main entrance renovation. Bring to completion.
Brooks Hall basement. Exploratory hole.
Kerchoff steam tunnel. Hang glovebags. My air montitor has been acting strange since the safety department took possession a couple weeks ago... with no notice or documentation. So now my monitor is unreliable. Other than the same department, who do I report this to? I asked the person I was working with to use his. He left it in the van so I brought it to him. He then left it outside the confined space. So we violated safety procedure and he put my life at risk.

The correction occurs only when leave and overtime occur in the same week, not 2-week pay period. If it did, I would
opt for keeping the 12 hours UL and getting only 22 hours OT. Explanation Week 29.
