近年做工程嗰啲文件真係一日比一日多。聽講幾十年前嘅地盤,係由頭到尾都唔多文件,但而家閒閒哋一支樓仔都可以出幾千份文件。基本上,將啲文件攤開佢嘅話,面積好可能會大過總樓面面積。 主要建築文件的分類 首先,所有建築都先要有探土丶周邊環境/限制的文件、比設計師們做佢哋嘅設計圖、做各種計算(GFA力學風量排水量等等),以及其他對政府同埋發展商嘅文件。之後就到工料測量師們計返嗰樣嘢嘅工程量用嚟做合約。然後到承建商同埋分判入場,開始要入返啲進度計劃、施工方案、材料報批、風險評估、施工深化圖等等一系列嘅文件。再之後就係一系列嘅業主、設計、承建、分判相互間嘅信來信住,包括你話我慢、我又話你阻住我、我又話你增加咗嘢要加錢、你又話我整爛你啲嘢要扣錢等等,同埋仲有好多測試文件、做完嘅驗收文件。 文件的用處 呢個世界上,每樣嘢存在都有佢嘅意義。雖然好多地盤人覺得好多文件都好廢,但係佢哋(文件)都有佢嘅用處。由初期嘅建築大綱,到慢慢細化每樣嘢,先令到呢個建築物從大方向去到每一個細位都能夠合理地興建出嚟。 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—地盤最重視嘅節日 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—好判頭&好騙頭 冇實際作用的文件...
打工仔常說:「在辦公室裏做人比工作更難啊!」若不幸遇到職場欺凌,大部分打工仔也會選擇啞忍或辭職。香港教育專業人員協會在今年2月以電郵向超過一千名教師進行調查,發現過半受訪者在過去六個月內,也在學校遭遇過一次或以上的職場欺凌,例如言語的攻擊、冷嘲熱諷、在背後中傷、上司不停打壓,甚至給過量不合理的工作等等。 這些只是冰山一角,欺凌問題充斥在各行各業。作為打工仔的你該如何應對呢?直接與欺凌者對話,背後的說三道四者,就最怕光明正大的擺上枱面?記錄所有「罪證」,若將來要向公司投訴或訴諸法庭時,這些證據也會成為呈堂証供?與人傾訴和嘗試磨合後也解決不了,那就訴諸投訴機制:工會、勞工、勞工組織和法律援助,都是你的武器?千萬別採取極端招數報復,也不要怪責和否定自己?以下為你詳細解說面對職場欺凌的Dos & Don’ts! 遇到職場欺凌你要做的事 1. 直接與欺凌者對話 愈早發聲,就可避免自己成為「長期攻擊」的對象,這是最關鍵亦最難行的一步,但只要有勇氣踏出這一步,就好大機會可解決問題。要知道如果你愈是忍氣吞聲,欺凌者就會變本加厲。所以當你注意到你受到欺凌時,在情況許可下,可作出即時回應。 例如同事經常要你去幫忙做自己工作範圍以外的事,你可禮貌地說:「不」。幫得一次,他就會繼續找你麻煩;若果你的拒絕令到他說更多難聽的說話,甚至作出人身攻擊,你就要直接說出你的感受,例如:「我無法幫你處理你的工作,但亦請你停止你帶有侮辱性的說話。」很多時候欺凌者會以「開玩笑」作為藉口,或者笑你「唔玩得」,此時你亦可以直接說出你真實的感受:「對啊,我不認為可以這樣開玩笑,希望你能尊重我。」說話時亦要注意自己的姿體語言,挺起胸膛抬起頭地顯露自己的自信。 很多時候欺凌者就是看準被欺凌者的懦弱,透過打敗別人來獲取成功感。若你能自信地回應他的冷嘲熱諷,一來他不會預計到你「原來」懂得反抗,能殺他一個措手不及。二來,每次你也正面反擊,他不能獲得成功感,漸漸便會失去攻擊你的興趣。...
