Office environment - Do you label broken equipment?

Last updated by Toby Churches [SSW] 14 days ago.See history

Imagine you see one port of a hub not working, what do you do?

When you see something not working like a phone or a power point, don't ignore it. Instead attach a short note to it that indicates it is out of order and notify the appropriate person.

This shouldnt be a large task - prepare a quick note form that reminds you what is broken, who you have to call to fix it and any additional details that may required to ensure the item is fixed properly or replaced.

Tip: Sticky notes work great! ✏️

If you want to have a more formal version of the sticky note, the SSW Design Team has created this PDF which can be printed and attached to stuff that needs fixing (however, normally just a yellow sticky note and an email does the job just fine)
