The gatekeeper’s duties encompass the power to determine who enters and exits, and to monitor guests, invitees and generally to control the inflow and outflow of traffic to and from the designated property.
Stress originates from one’s external environment. It can be physical — as in manual labor which, often because of repetitive use and impact, can result in injuries or occupational hazards; as well as mental and emotional, resulting in secondary or tertiary medical conditions as a natural and direct result thereof. One often thinks of the gatekeeper as merely he who guards the physical security of a piece of property. But stress also requires a gatekeeper — especially for the psychological impact which it portends.
In contemplating the preparation, formulation and filing of a Federal and Postal Disability Retirement application, whether under FERS or CSRS, with the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, it is important to understand the inherently problematic nature of attempting to feature “stress” as a medical condition itself. While it may spawn other conditions, because stress is a part of almost every workplace environment, it rarely serves to be a successful “condition” standing alone. In conjunction with medical conditions often associated with it, however, it can be effectively and persuasively be identified and delineated.
All of us are ultimately gatekeepers for the things which impact our lives. Each of us have innate spectrums for tolerating varying levels of environmental factors, including workplace stress. When the gatekeeper allows too many security violations to occur, it may well be a basis for “removal” from the environment. And while stress itself may not be the single best basis for exiting the environment, there will surely be other medical conditions which result from the stresses, which will justify preparing, formulating and filing for Federal Disability Retirement benefits from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
