Signing in Chits

Anyone else slightly peterbed by the fact we now have to sign in and out on a drill night. What next do I have to get a chit to be in the corridor during lessons. :roll:
 
Used to have to do that when I was in the TA. No sign in No Pay. Also I heard that some blokes were getting their mates to sign them in so it got double checked at first parade. Also if you were out of uniform and signed in you didn't get paid, prevented blokes dropping by on their way home from work, hanging around until after parade then bogging off home. Also fire regs as well methinks......

Not RNR but don't see what the problem is. I mean, how long does it take to scribble your name and details onto a sheet of paper. It's not exactly a hardship, is it? :roll:

Perish the thought they might send you away on operations and you get something real to complain about. :wink:

Have been signing in for 14 years and managed to survive!

It also has something to do with a little thing called fire safety....

i.e. in the event of a fire being able to account for all the people in the building

Or is that unreasonable....!!! :twisted:

But the original post did not complain about signing-in, but signing out too.

Given that the WTRs are about to disappear, why are units doubling the amount of paperwork? (oh, and being slightly green, why so much paper?)

Perhaps the unit has an issue with people leaving before their time...a common problem..!

Same principle applies....fires do not only start during 7:30 and 9:30. On the basis that people stay on in messes cant see the problem..!!

However in the scheme of things does it really f**king matter...with all thats going on in the world and the RNR if all you have to moan about are signing in chits my advice would be..!!

Life in the RN/RNR is full of inane and seemingly pointless tasks just

GET ON WITH IT AND GET OUT MORE!!!

Can't really see a problem here. After all, people have to clock in and clock out in civilian jobs.

Can't see a problem with this - although I'm sure more than a few of us will forget to sign out for a few weeks until we're used to it. Soon get used to it when you dip out on pay a few times!! All comes down to discipline though doesn't it, I mean RNR are subject to the NDA when on duty so why beef about it. There're more important things to worry about in my opinion.

However, that said, I'm not aware of any requirement to sign out - unless I skipped that bit in the JPA literature and presentations.......
 
Most places now require some sort of sign in and a sign out .

Possibly due to the building safety regulations

and of course the old gags as someone previously mentioned the buddy sign in or out dodges. :lol: :lol:

If you don't sign out, you're still in the building in the event of a fire.
There are other methods like peg-boards which are widely used that don't generate double the existing amount of paperwork for the soon-to-be-defunct writers to process!

I cant beleive i actually read past the first post on this one?

How else would your unit know you were in if you didnt sign in.

At the company where i work you have to sign in and out even if you nip out to buy a sandwich.

Its common sense!

Just to satisfy my curiosity. Those units that have not required people to sign in on drill night-how does the UPO know who to pay?

they are a new thing for JPA apparently, we have them now!

Have I got it totally wrong or did I fall asleep during the presentation. I thought that JPA required us to enter our own data onto a computer??


Ahhh I've got it now. Perhaps KA does not have implicit faith in the wonderful computer network that we have!!!!


I understand that all reserve training will now take place at a naval establishment during the weekend with the majority of the time being taken up by queueing for a JPA terminal and then moving on to fill in a chit. Said chit to be passed back to unit permanent staff for onward transmission to the JPA help line when it is a) open and b) free from 25000 regulars trying to get through.

Result will be an increase in back problems for the cleaners and significant increase in landfill!!!

Cynical ......me........!!!!!!!!!
