While at work today, someone took my bag of tools, including my Voltimeter, off our big yellow cart. I talked to our EHS (safety and security) folks and they said that even though it was well over $1000 worth of tools it was not their problem.
I guarantee that if I had taken their stuff it would be different, I'd be behind the door at the graybar hotel.
What is worse is that because we have to provide our own tools, I have to go buy new tools.
I hate a thief, and am beginning to think that our EHS folks are too lazy to do their jobs.

Lazy security usually gets their wakeup call when the tool insurance company shows up and starts digging into their business. Corporate attorneys really hate when the insurance investigators show up for something the company may be culpable for. Corporate attorneys then start poking at the CEO and the CEO then rains fire and brimstone on security.

Alas, you need to have a work tool insurance policy for this to happen. A grand's worth of tools is a tiny policy but it's worth looking into for your brand new batch.

I have a nice tool bag for sale, with multimeter.

Agreed, I hate thieves, as they steal your life. The time spent earning the money to pay for that stuff can never be replaced.

$1000 is felony territory around here. Bang, Bang, Bang, thud.



Also, your security company can say "it's not their problem" but that may not be the case. Look into the contract, they may have some responsibility. It's entirely possible they are involved too.

Theivery is essentially the only "sin" ... theivery of life is murder. Theivery of the truth is deceptive lying.

As dude that works out of his truck & trailer every day...

I'm sorry and I feel for ya. I hope your luck changes

Would filing a police report help encourage the company safety/security officer to actually do his job? Maybe pull a few video tapes.

That really sucks. Had a tool belt full of tools get stolen out of car in college. Was not worth more than a couple 100 dollars new but at least 4 of the tools where gifts that meant a lot to me. One was a really nice 16oz hammer that I had from the age of 4. (I was weird and asked for tools instead of toys as a kid)

Ultimately thieves steal things that we had to purchase with after tax dollars earned with hours of our life invested , and to repair your standing there are more hours to replace them . They are stealing hours, days even from your life. I have zero tolerance for thieves and cons .

File a formal police report and also check the pawnshops. You may get it back.

I am really sorry this happened to you.

Yeah at least call the police. Let your company feel a little heat even if its just a cop car out front.

There is a reason they hung horse thieves and rustlers back in the day. Messing with a man's living was a huge no-no.

It would reduce the prison population too.

Every morning go in and grab their box of donuts and hand them out to others until you get what you want.

Definitely file a police report. I'm the guy who "owns" the security camera systems at my work. Whenever there's a broken window in a parking lot or a robbery in the neighborhood of one of our buildings, a cop stops to see me and asks to review the video tape.

A visit from the police might get the security company to at least investigate a little. I might even mention to the police that it was odd how much the security company resisted getting involved. Let the police start asking them some questions.

Sorry, we speak redneck. But they were efficient at breaking necks even if their grammar sucked.

Good luck with getting the PD involved, that's almost laughable.
I'd have a talk with the plant manager or VP of manufacturing, whatever they call the boss where you work.

I worked at a construction site were heavy stuff was disappearing. Security found some hardware in the weeds outside the fence. So they moved the construction parking lot a quarter mile away and put a camera on the road.

I always use tool boxes since they are easier to secure and weigh more. Usually weld eyes to the top and bottom to keep a rod across the drawers.
Definitely call the police as soon as possible. The stuff might be hidden somewhere and a little pressure might bring it back.

I'm retired LEO as well. This is the job that pays before the retirement checks begin, I'm 47 so it will be a while.
