Should an employee be aloud to wear his personal cell phone bluetooth headset at work?
We have a warehouse employee where I work that wears his bluetooth headset all day long. Lets forget that he looks like a dork....but its for his personal cell phone. I would think there would be safety issues, and the fact that you shouldn't be taking that many personal calls in a day that you would need one. No one is sick, dying or preganant in his household. Should this be aloud?
Additional Details
This is the real kicker, the same employee called the Health and Safety board and complained about people coming through the warehouse with no steel toes shoes, and we had a HUGE audit here from the Ministry.

If your a Seinfeld fan you will get this nick name, we call him "the warehouse nazi" (instead of the soup nazi).

He's even reported me for not keeping the first aid box stocked in the warehouse, (we ran out of bandaids in that box)...I don't have steel toed boots because i'm just a the receptionist and I'm not on the health and safety board....

Not if he is aloud. That would be very disturbing to others.

Most companies/employers are prohibiting employees from using cell phones during work hours, so the fact that they are allowing this person to wear his bluetooth all day is surprising.

I'd not allow it.

Most companies are like Churches - personal cell phones/headsets are to be turned off. This is due to safety & respect for others. I was in a restaurant when a waitress came up to a couple who were both on their cell phones & she stated that they were in the " no cell phone section."
Everyone who heard her applauded & they put their phones away! ROTFL!!!

Does your company have a policy against it? What kind of personal protective equipment, if any, do you wear in the warehouse? (Steel-toed boots or hard hat, gloves, etc.) Does the headset interfere with any safety protocols, like impair his ability to hear shouts of warning, or a horn on a fork truck, etc.?

Is anyone else permitted to carry his or her cell phone and keep it with them while on duty in the warehouse?

Most companies prohibit personal calls at work except for emergencies. And most prohibit wearing bluetooth, headset or anything else which interferes with hearing, especially where other employees or customers need to communicate with you, or where not listening could endanger you or others.

If his company has such rules, it is up to his supervisor to put a stop to it. If it is interfering with the work he is supposed to be doing and disrupting workflow for coworkers, then they must mention it to his supervisor to deal with it in accordance with company policy. If it is not interfering with your work or your interactions with your coworker, keep your mouth shut!

i own a small computer business and i really frown upon personal calls. if it's very important or involves family no problem. i pay a better than average wage and look after my employees very well and expect them to work not talk on the phone. if one of them showed up with a headset there would be one warning then out the door. i don't care who it is.

If it's that 'aloud', it certainly should not be allowed!
