I work for a company that handles many different class and ceramic products.
The glass and ceramic products are shaped, sanded, and packaged in our shop.
When the glass and ceramic products are shaped, a lot of dust and debris is released into the air. I am thankful that this place has a fantastic air filtration system. I have worked in a couple of other factories and this one has the best air filtration system by far. Even when I am in the glass cutting room, there is barely any dust or debris in the air. The air filtration unit has a special air filter right by the machine and that cuts down on any extra matter. Last week there was a problem with the air filtration system and the shop was shut down for two days while we waited for the new parts to arrive. It was the first time that the shop ever had to shut down due to a problem with malfunctioning equipment. Usually the electrical engineer or mechanical engineer on duty can handle this type of issue, but the parts had to be ordered from the manufacturer this time. I didn’t know if my boss was going to pay anyone for the two days we missed, so I was happily surprised when I got my paycheck on Friday and it was exactly the same as a five-day work week. I spent the two days off going to the beach and surfing, and getting paid for those two days was just icing on the cake. When I went back to work, I felt rejuvenated and totally energized.
