Notes can be a huge help. Here are some ideas:
- Provide extra details about special event schedules.
Example Note: Please meet at the West Gate of the Stadium.
- List information to employees about what tasks are due.
Example Note: Please fill out your Rig Check and Supervisor Log at the end of your shift.
- Give details about an employee leaving early or arriving late.
Example Note: Paulina had childcare issues so she will be in at 9:10am.
- Keep a daily log for the schedule.
Example Note: **Took report from # 16-J, signed control drugs - short 1 Fentanyl from Medic # 2 earlier call
